Poppy Jay

Poppy is dynamic, powerful and no-nonsense broadcaster and BAFTA nominated director with experience covering issues on feminism, political uprising and challenging cultural perceptions.

Poppy does not shy away from a difficult and challenging subject matter and her journalistic credibility has seen her present documentaries such as Dispatches: Isis; The British Women Supporters Unveiled and Rescuing Ex-Muslims: Leaving Islam for Channel 4 and Young & Sterile: My Choice and The Truth about Upskirting for BBC Three. 

Poppy's tenacity and chameleon-like attitude further led Poppy to direct, produce and present the hit Channel 4 Documentary ‘Queens of Rap’, which landed her a Bafta nomination. 

As part of the multi award-winning podcasting duo for ‘Brown Girls Do It Too’ Poppy talks candidly, hilariously and informatively about sex, dating and relationships as a modern British south-asian woman. Highlights for the podcast (which is now in its fourth season) have included winning the AudioBoom's Podcast of the Year at the British Podcast Awards 2020 and Best Podcast at The Asian Media Awards in 2021. The show has also now taken to the stage with Brown Girls Do It Too: Mama Told Me Not to Come which after a successful national tour in 2022 and a 4* review from The Guardian is returning to the stage in May/June for a three week run.

Poppy also hosted the BBC Asian Network show ‘GroupChat’ which earned her the ARIA Gold Winner in the Best New Presenter category in 2021.
