Grace Webb is the Presenter of the CBeebies series - Grace’s Amazing Machines - a programme designed to introduce pre-school children to the biggest; fastest; and most amazing machines in the world. She has also made appearances as an educator on the highly anticipated ‘BBC Bitesize Daily’ but, she started her career as a Lifeguard.

Grace is known for her love of sport and action, which is little surprise when she comes from a family of motorsports enthusiasts and is the granddaughter of Donington Park’s Race Circuit founder Tom Wheatcroft.

In 2011, she qualified as a lifeguard at her local swimming pool where she started her career. As a lifeguard, she particularly enjoyed the training aspect of the role and knowing that the work she was doing was protecting and supporting her community. However, it was Grace’s love of motorsport that led to her first television appearance as an interviewer on ‘Motors TV’ for popular motorcycle championship ‘Thundersport GB’.

When Grace was filming for Motors TV, she also studied for a degree in Primary Education. Her passion for inspiring and motivating young minds led Grace to be a classroom teacher for four and a half years before taking a promotion to Assistant Headteacher for a further year and a half.

From there she applied the skills she had developed throughout her working life to creating a successful career in TV. For more information about Grace, visit
