Natalie Gumede

Natalie first came to prominence in an award winning storyline in Coronation Street, playing Kirsty Soames, the violent partner to the much loved Tyrone Dobbs. Across 2012-2013, she was nominated for the National Television Awards and TV Choice Awards, and won British Soap Awards for Best Newcomer, Villain of the Year, and Best Dramatic Performance.

Immediately after, Natalie finished runner up in the 2013 season of Strictly Come Dancing, followed by a national arena tour. She also presented awards at the BAFTA Children's Awards 2013, The TV Choice Awards 2014, and The NTA’s 2015.

Since then she has starred in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, Jekyll and Hyde for ITV, the Emmy winning children’s show ‘Free Rein’ for Netflix, and DC’s ‘Titans’ for Netflix and HBO Max, amongst others. Natalie can currently be seen in Amazon Prime Video  Christmas film 'Your Christmas Or Mine' which is filming a second series.

As a public speaker at events, Natalie has 20 years of experience to share on some of the nation’s favourite shows. She also understands the importance of resilience, self motivation and discipline as an actor, which has great crossover to the world of business. Additionally, Natalie is a qualified yoga teacher and is very comfortable in the wellness and mental health space.



Thank you so much for presenting at the British Academy Children’s Awards….with your support we were able to deliver a wonderful celebration of the Children’s industry. The feedback from those attending the event has been incredibly positive, and press coverage has been fantastic. 


Meant to get in touch personally to say what a great impression you made on everyone involved. Your patience, clear dedication and prep……your talent and natural exuberance was much appreciated.


Thank you Natalie for the inspiring message. You have been an amazing, thoughtful mentor and an incredible support for us - especially tonight!

Having spoken to Natalie we would love to work with her again for our June event, hosting! She was fabulous and both our customers and partners loved her.
