Emma Pollard is the face of Piers Morgan's new online news programme for children

    Regular cyber-surfers may have come across this woman.

    London actress Emma Pollard is the face of First TV, the new online children's news programme launched by Piers Morgan earlier this month. First TV is a spin-off from Mr Morgan's First News - the award-winning, and only, national children's newspaper.

    Aimed at those aged between six and ten, First TV is a mixture of news, entertainment, sport, travel, high-profile celebrity interviews, competitions and attempts at breaking records - one in each episode.

    Miss Pollard, 25, who played Lauren in the internet drama KateModern, was in Los Angeles pursuing an acting career when she got offered the job. She has since returned to London and co-presents the programme with YouTube star Charlie McDonnell (also pictured). Miss Pollard tells People: "It was a great opportunity. Interviewing Piers Morgan was pretty nerve-wracking but good fun. The show features all sorts of people doing whacky things."

    Miss Pollard gained a degree in drama, arts and theatre from the University of Birmingham before going on to complete a master's in acting for the screen from the Central School of Speech and Drama.
