Hoping the relaunched show will help challenge stereotypes about gender roles on television, just like her original show did for female presenters.
Of Challenge Aneka’s predecessor, Treasure Hunt, she said, “It put a woman’s absolute control at the center of the action that drives the story. It has really changed the face of TV and in many ways, and I want to fly the flag for women today.”
She said: ‘Forty years ago you have to remember where women were placed on television. They were usually either draped over cars as prizes at a quiz game or standing behind a news desk.’
“I feel exactly the same as 30 years ago, but there may be more discussion about what we look like, or how we can handle it, while men just go ahead and do it, and their image and brand remain intact.”
Referring to a project that helped Romanian children on the original show, who are now helping in the Ukrainian crisis, she said, “That absolutely touched me, because it was like one humanitarian crisis spilling over into another 30 years ago.”

‘Three decades later, the problems may look different, but at their core they are the same; they are about people and communities.
