Vonda Barnes

TV Presenter

Vonda was first propelled to our screens as a member of the girl band MADASUN in 1999. They were successfully signed to record label V2 for 5 years during which time they had 3 top 20 hits in the UK coupled with even greater success overseas especially in Italy and Australia. Besides the usual circuits of ‘Smash Hits’ Top of the Pops’ and SMTV at the time, Madasun toured the summer Festibarr Colisseum shows and fronted Italian Vogues Iceberg jeans Campaign, shot in Hollywood by top photographer David La Chappelle alongside Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson.

After the band, Vonda presented 2 shows on Sky, ‘The Guest List’ and ‘Vonda and the Doc’ which was a type of embarrassing bodies show and her interest in health and wellbeing was born.

Motherhood persuaded Vonda to take a few years off to bring up her 2 young children and in the meantime successfully open an upmarket children’s fashion and gift. Vonda also started developing her own property portfolio. Her love of restoring and developing was created as a child watching and learning from her father who was in property for over 50 years. As well as the creative process of restoring properties, a love for interior design has been apparent in each development and now further afield where her design skills have been sort after to help clients create their dream look in their homes.

 Vonda is currently a regular fashion Expert on QVC for several  fashion brands and the Brand Ambassador for the sports brand, Skechers, as well as coaching and working alongside her young son  who has been acting for several years and which takes them all over the world on set locations.

In her free time, Vonda can be seen at the gym working out including Spinning and Pilates. As an ex-dancer this has always been an integral part of her life. She comes from a very theatrical family with her mother a dancer for many years with Saddlers Wells and her sister, the actress Cindy Shelley, from The Young Ones, Bottom and Howards Way.
