My name is Ellie Bacon and I'm a Researcher based in London. I have worked on mainly entertainment shows, some of which include Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side, Strictly Come Dancing It Takes Two, Cannonball and BAFTA Film and TV awards. I'm young, fresh and very open minded to new opportunities and always learn something new on a job, as every show is different. I enjoy writing scripts, interviews, contributing ideas to the table and progressing them with a team. I see myself as a fast, creative thinker and I like to see things produced thoroughly. I'm a team player and equally work hard as an individual to get the job done. In my spare time I run an online food channel called PigOut in which I produce and present. I work alongside Objekt Films, a young, vibrant film company to create, edit and distribute our content.
