Actress, presenter and comedienne Daisy Donovan has chosen Chiswick to be her home after recently moving into the area.

Donovan, daughter of celebrity photographer Terence Donovan and Chairwoman of the English National Ballet School Diana Donovan, is married to Ali G producer Dan Mazer with whom she has a daughter Maisy.

A graduate of Edinburgh University, Daisy made her name presenting The Eleven O'Clock Show (1998-2000) with Iain Lee, and has since gone on to host the quiz shows including Does Doug Know? and the eponymous Daisy Daisy, which she also wrote and produced. She gained fame in America with her show Daisy Does America.

A former pupil of St Paul's School, Donovan believes the reason that she connects with certain members of her own sex is because of her posh English goofiness. She is quoted as saying, “Women my age shout things like, ‘I f***ing love you!’ really loudly at me in the street."

Well not in Chiswick they won't Daisy, just ask Ant & Dec.
