Deborah Jay Kelly is a well-known Celebrity featured regularly on TV, Radio, Magazine and National Newspapers. What people do not realise is that her career has spanned some 27 years starting as a Junior Journalist, responsible for launching numerous Newspapers and Magazines as Group Advertising Director to 56 magazines, producing content and voicing commercials for a nationally recognised Radio Station, creating some of the first 0891 Televised Competitions on Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky tv (42 channels), Cable Networks, and Magazine such as OK Magazine which led to a turnover in the region of millions of pounds, owning her own Advertising Agency at the age of 30, being featured on TV shows since she was 17 years old and being heavily involved in property investment.
‘I am always inventing new concepts. I was one of the first agencies to integrate a TV station with Premium Rate and Tour Operator to produce an all-win money-making enterprise’. this led to this idea being utilised by leading TV Shows such as ‘Stars in their Eyes’ and the Breakfast Show ‘Good Morning’.
Panache Global Entertainment Awards ‘Outstanding Award in Media and Entertainment 2018
One of these was to win the CURRENT Pageant Title Ms WOW International 2020 and Mrs British Empire 2017/18 after a tough divorce, and to be Nominated and Awarded 'Best Fashion Presenter' 2019. ‘Having worked as a part-time model, dancer and actress since I was 17, being in front of a camera is natural for me. I have been the Presenter and Host for the Islamabad Fashion Week, a Guest Speaker at numerous Events, Singer in a Jazz Band, Author and Red-Carpet Interviewer for 800 Culturally diverse/minority Charites. My School 'The Angel Academy of Teaching and Training' is featured regularly on high profile TV shows. www.angel-academy.co.uk’ says Deborah.
Women’s Empowerment Award Winner 2019
‘Having been an introvert due to past illness and wearing my first set of false eyelashes at the age of 44, I don’t think any of the audiences I have presented to throughout the world would ever realise that I suffered a true sense of worthlessness. I believe that this is what made me grow and to develop empathy for all humans whatever their Colour, Creed, Race, Gender or Sexual Inclination. This is what I thrive on when I stand on a stage in front of 100’s and sometimes 1000’s of people I do not know’ says Deborah.

Beffta Award for ‘Contribution to the World’ 2019
I presented the ISLAMABAD FASHION WEEK in 2017
Fortunately for me people of all Cultural Backgrounds have embraced me and for that I am forever Thankful. I am now able to walk on stage without a script or any previous prepping. I can improvise because humanity is the greatest thing that exists.
Being a Red-Carpet Host is so much fun. I get to interview incredible people and am never phased by them or their successes. I want to bring out the best in every person that I interview and if you treat a person with respect in the way that they want to be treated they are always honourable.
