SHE’S the funnywoman who you may recognise from a slew of reality TV series including Cirque de Celebrité.
Here’s what we know about the British comedienne who’s looking for love in Our Shirley Valentine Summer…
Comedian Ninia Benjamin is set to star in the upcoming Our Shirley Valentine Summer
Who is Our Shirley Valentine Summer star Ninia Benjamin?
Ninia Benjamin is one of the UK’s most renowned comediennes both on stage and screen.
She’s performed at the esteemed Edinburgh Festival multiple times.
But it was being one third of BBC3’S 3 Non-Blondes that rocketed the British funnywoman to comedy stardom.
The show was such a hit that it was later picked up by BBC America – giving her an international platform.
The funnywoman launched to fame in her BBC3 show 3 Non-Blondes and has since starred in multiple reality TVseries
Her powerful screen presence, entertainment factor and ability to reduce audiences to stitches has lead her to feature in a slew of reality TV shows.
In 2007 Ninia appeared on the Cirque de Celebrité but was voted out in the sixth week – and in the same year she won Celebrity Scissorhands.
The following year she was also busy with her reality TV commitments – starring in both Celebrity Masterchef and Hole in the Wall.
But perhaps her funniest reality TV achievement was starring in Total Wipeout in 2009 where she became the slowest person ever to cross the course with a time of 11:11.
Since 2010 she has provided the voices for CBeebies’ Tinga Tinga Tales.
