Catriona Shearer

The Caird Hall in Dundee was the venue for this year's Tayside Excellence Awards, now in its third year.

BBC Scotland news presenter Catriona Shearer was this year's invited host. Catriona is well known for her bubbly, outgoing personality.

Having recently got engaged, it looks like wedding bells will be ringing soon but in the meantime she has taken up clay pigeon shooting which she thinks she was pretty good at, unlike the golf trial with BBC weather girl Gail McGrane after which, she announced she was "pretty rubbish".

Catriona now has a regular column in The Scottish Sun newspaper.
