Zoe Salmon got tongues wagging when she stepped out onto the red carpet in a barely there black minidress and black tights (see first thumbnail below). She wore the super short outfit to the premier of Jim Carey’s new movie, ‘The Yes Man.’

Zoe Salmon Biography

Zoe Salmon was born January 7 1980, in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. She went to Queens University in Belfast, and received a degree in law at the 2.1 level, and eventually qualified as a solicitor. She was crowned Miss Northern Ireland in 1999.

The 28 year old television presenter began her career on the children’s show Blue Peter in 2004. Shortly after her debut on the show, she said “I’d do anything once,? which led to frequent segments where she was asked to do dangerous or embarrassing things. She left the show in June 2008.

Her 3.5 year run on Blue Peter was marred by controversy. First, BBC received complaints after she started for allegedly only advertising in certain areas, which led people to think they were discriminating against certain accents. The BBC states this is not true, and claimed they advertised throughout the UK.

The second controversy had to do with Zoe Salmon’s decision to place the Red Hand of Ulster on British Airways planes as the “Best of British? logo. She states she chose the symbol because she is proudly from Ulster. Critics, however, asserted that the Red Hand has taken on negative connotations, and some even likened it to a swastika.

The third controversy had to do with Zoe Salmon’s beauty queen looks. The program’s producers were accused of adding her to the show in order to “sex up? Blue Peter. Critics also claimed that she “dumbed down? the program, and said Zoe always looked uncomfortable around children and accused her of looking like a sexual bimbo. Program producers, of course, denied these claims.

Since leaving Blue Peter, she has made several appearances on several shows, including two games shows which she hosted.

In 2006, Zoe Salmon lended her fame to a good cause by running in the London Marathon and gaving the money she raised to the charity ChildLine.
