Sky’s Hayley adding sparkle with superstar guest

Fareham’s stellar Sky TV presenter, chat show host HAYLEY PALMER, writes exclusively for The Globe about her hour-long Christmas Day special featuring superstar Michael Bolton. Because of Covid restrictions, the show includes a ‘virtual’ chat with the singer and clips from some of his greatest music videos…

I’VE HAD a fantastic range of guests this year on my show – Saturday Night with Hayley Palmer – including Brian Conley, Anton Du Beke, Debbie McGee, Claire Sweeney and Kimberly Wyatt. On the Christmas Day Special – it will be Micheal Bolton hour, which will include a virtual chat with Michael and playing some of his greatest hits including ‘How am I supposed to live without you’ and ‘How can we be lovers?’ We’ve filmed my shows mainly virtually this year due to restrictions, which has actually worked out well in some respects, especially guests like Michael Bolton, The Three Degrees, and Kool & The Gang from the US.


In this job you have to be extremely motivated. I set myself mini goals daily to ensure that I’m taking action and crossing things off my to do list! I believe that 50 per cent is mindset and 50 per cent is hard work. I spend every morning at the pool at the gym ready to kickstart the day, and then work my way through my to-do list (and reward myself with chocolate!).

I pretty much work from home, and have a green screen studio at my parents’ house which enables me to film there if need be. I’ve had to learn to adapt, and as long as I can keep working and following my dreams then I’m happy!

As for new projects coming up in 2022, I’ve been reporting Entertainment Segments on GB News, which I’ve absolutely loved! I’ve got to talk about Strictly and I’m a Celebrity! – which has been very much up my street! And I have some other exciting TV opportunities in 2022 coming up so watch this space.

I don’t have any specific New Year resolutions. I believe in setting goals all year round, so I don’t leave it all into January. I’d probably say cut down on ordering deliveroos and start to cook more!

Saturday Night with Hayley Palmer will be broadcast on Christmas Day, at 9pm. Sky TV 365/Freesat 500/Connected Freeview 264.
