About Livvy and Chrissie
Presenter double act Livvy and Chrissie are bold, sassy and smart.
They are living life to the full and loving it. At a time when most 'women of a certain age' are leaving the media or being pushed out, Livvy & Chrissie are making a stance and loving it!
Livvy and Chrissie burst onto the airwaves 2 years ago. Taking a quiet Saturday lunchtime slot, they quickly boosted the ratings with their unique mix of fun and banter. Soon Studio 3 at BBC Radio Bristol became a hub for their 'Dishy Chef' slot as well as interviews with polititians, musicians, celebrities and inspirational women alike. Livvy and Chrissie have squared up to Sir Bob Geldorf, jammed with Chris De Burgh, been jumped on by JLS, and took up the challenge with Charles Hazelwood and Adrian Utley to rap live on air: “Women of a Certain Age, got hormonal rage...” Well, you’re never too old to have a laugh and a boogie!
Livvy Rose combines a rich background in psychotherapy and music with a honey voice, fab style and a wicked sense of humour. A skilled interviewer, she can create an enthralling, intimate moment in a busy studio and guests feel that they are part of the gang.
Chrissie Lloyd, with her background in IT, wants to ensure that no woman is ever frightened of technology again. A sharp wit, a clever interviewer with good journalistic skills, Chrissie’s one-liners can dissolve even the most hardened souls into cracking a smile.
Livvy and Chrissie design, produce, edit, interview, present and drive all their own radio shows. And also are known to make their own coffee...
