It is not common to find a lady who talks football. Yet, Suzanne Whiston came to global limelight for producing and reporting on the highlights of the 2006 World Cup in Germany for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). But, there is another part of her life that seems to be dominating the media more than this, the fact that 2019 marks the silver jubilee of her relationship with her boyfriend Karl Pilkington.
Obviously, the TV producer presents one of the most unique personalities you can find. So, join us as we take a look at the enthralling life of this British lady. Here, you will find all you need to know about her.
Suzanne Whiston Biography
So many sources are unanimous that Suzanne Whiston was born in 1968 in the United Kingdom. But none of these sources have any information on her exact birth date. Nor does any of them provide details regarding her parents, siblings, city of birth and such. We attribute this paucity of details about Suzanne to another aspect of her life that is widely reported. It is said that she has been a shy and introvert person since her childhood. Rumor has it that she used to stay indoors reading novels for hours as a child and had no time for much of social life.
Just like her childhood, information about Suzanne Whiston’s education history is also elusive. No one seems to know where she attended elementary and high school as well as college.
Relationship With Karl Pilkinson
Suzanne Whiston and her boyfriend Karl Pilkinson may one day be referenced as the couple who dated the longest without marriage or break-up. Actually, 2019 marks the silver jubilee of their unlegalized romance. The couple seems perfectly happy with the situation as they refer to each other as husband and wife although there was never a wedding between them – at least, none that we know about.
Suzanne makes it clear that she has given up her earlier desire and plan to get married and have children all because Karl does not want things that way. So, they are living and just enjoying each other without letting a kid come in between them.
Who Is Karl Pilkinton and How Did The Duo Meet?
Karl Pilkinton is also a TV person just like Suzanne. He is a TV presenter as well as a radio producer, comedian, and actor. The English man was born on September 23, 1972. It means, therefore, that Karl Pilkinton is about four years younger than Suzanne Whiston, another unique part of their relationship.
Pilkinton became famous as the producer of The Rick Gervais Show on XFM. He also appeared on the show. He has featured in at least nine long-running TV shows since 2003. Currently, he is a part of Sky One’s comedy-drama series Sick Of It which has been running since September 27, 2018. He has also been part of such feature films as The Invention Of Lying (2009) and Cemetery Junction (2010).
Many believe that his sense of humor is the reason Suzanne is so attached to him. The pair had worked together for some time then one day in 1994, Suzanne gave Karl 20p to pay for a hot chocolate. Afterward, Karl helped her with some editing work and one thing led to another.
Career and Net Worth
As a TV producer, Suzanne Whiston’s name has been tied to British Broadcasting Corporation’s program, Match of the Day (MOTD). She has worked as a member of the program’s production crew for years. Match of the Day is a Saturday evening program that airs on BBC One during every English football season. The program typically presents the highlights of the games.
But since producers work behind the scene, Suzanne’s many years at the MOTD production crew were never recognized by the public. That was until the 2006 World Cup in Germany when it fell on Suzanne to both produce and report the tourney’s daily highlights right from Germany. She was really impressive at the job.
However, before working at the British Broadcasting Corporation, history has it that she once worked as a producer for Key 103 Radio in Manchester. From all these sources, Suzanne Whiston has surely amassed a sizable fortune at least. Thus, sources from late 2018 reported that she was worth $2 million at the time.
