Having survived polio as a youngster, Ade Adepitan has succeeded as an international Paralympic wheelchair basketball player and has built up a wealth of broadcasting experience. He has travelled the world for his work and regularly goes undercover, investigating controversial and ground-breaking stories. He is a regular reporter for the BBC's One Show and a returning presenter for Children in Need. Ade has also presented countless sporting events including co-hosting the BAFTA award-winning coverage of the 2012 Paralympics alongside Clare Balding, and the 2016 Invictus Games, created by Prince Harry.
Ade had a very busy 2018 including releasing his first Children’s book, Cyborg Cat- Rise of the Parsons Road Gang. He also returned to co-host Children in Need, helping raise over £50 million for charity. However a majority of Ade's year was spent exploring the African continent for his first 4-part documentary Africa with Ade Adepitan. The series documents Ade's journey, uncovering how modern Africa is changing and sees him visit a vast array of contrasting places on the continent. Ade's second children's book Cyborg Cat and the Night Spider will be published on 3rd October this year. All proceeds will be donated to Children in Need.
