Ellen was born-and-bred in Yorkshire but has bases all over the country (London, Manchester, Newcastle, Wiltshire) and falls naturally into both Yorkshire and RP accents.
She is also a scriptwriter and has produced her own plays, including at the Edinburgh Fringe. Having grown up around farms, Ellen is a keen animal-lover and an accomplished horse-rider. Her vibrant life has taken her backpacking around the world.
