ENTERTAINING & EMPOWERING
From Breakfast TV to Hollywood to Big Red Balls
Amanda’s TV Journey…
Her career started at an early age when she took the modelling world by storm and she didn’t stop there! TV beckoned and her fledgling gig was to co-host Ireland’s first ever Breakfast show Ireland AM. Not an easy job for for one so young, but Amanda took to it so naturally that after just one year she was invited to co-host on the iconic breakfast television show – The Big Breakfast – on CH4.
Having established herself in the UK and Ireland, Amanda broke America, hosting primetime network shows on FOX such as: The Swan and Paradise Hotel. Her USA career also saw her hosting Entertainment Tonight for Sky One, and co-hosting game show Grand Slam with popular US comedian Dennis Miller for GSN.
BBC and Big Red Balls
Back in the UK, Amanda was chosen to host the UK version ABC’s Wipeout on BBC1. She hosted 6 seasons of Total Wipeout alongside Richard Hammond. Amanda’s irreverent and deprecating humour landed her several TV awards for Best Host and Best TV Show. Her TV credits also include host of Sky One’s The Angel and popular talent show Don’t Stop Me Now.
Pride of Ireland
Amanda is also highly sought after in the corporate world having been chosen as the ongoing host of The L’Oreal Awards in Ireland as well as The Pride of Ireland Awards and The IFTA TV Awards.

BE STRONGER THAN YOUR EXCUSES
Activewear for Women
BODY BY BYRAM is Amanda’s new activewear range. Her dedication to health and well-being has lead to her being recognised as a role model and community leader for women who, like her, believe that strong is the new skinny. Amanda carries this with her in both the physical and virtual worlds and is communicating with more and more women everyday. Whether it’s the one-on-one advice Amanda offers to women in gyms, fitness studios, spin classes and yoga sessions or conversing with them on mass through social media, blog posts and workout videos, Amanda is fast becoming one of the most influential voices in non-professional sport for adult women.
Creating a Brand
And so, armed with a passion for activewear and an implicit understanding of what women want, Amanda is ready to share her inaugural collection. Her dedication to the designs and integrity to only deliver clothing that she would proudly wear, permeates through every aspect of BODY BY BYRAM. The range is designed to empower the modern woman. Every garment is stylish yet supportive and, above all, created with absolute authenticity. Before Amanda and the team got to work on the designs, she knew that she needed a logo that inspired all who saw it. Almost instantly, the logo was scribbled on her notepad: a wing connected to a “B” logo. For her, it symbolises both the ability of the individual to take flight and soar above the crowd, whilst simultaneously recognising that every women is driven by a maternal instinct to nurture under the wing. It is both a reference to the ME and the WE. The former representing strength, independence and identity and the latter denoting community, sisterhood and the unique sense of pride experienced when belonging to a tribe.
With such a strong icon in place, Amanda knew she had to deliver a collection that was worthy and, from day one, created five pillars that would ensure she stayed true to the women who she was creating the collection for.Throughout the process, one question above all was asked, “What would SHE want?” The answer? Simple… FASHION, FABRIC, FIT, FEATURES and FEEL. These touchstones informed Amanda and the team every step of the way to ensure they never lost sight of who SHE is and, more importantly how to help her exercise with freedom and confidence and allow her to be stronger than her excuses…
