She has dedicated her career to making programmes that entertain whilst offering a commentary on the world around us, and we are really lucky that she is bringing her passion for the genre to the channel. “
Greenslade said: “"Working alongside Simon and Lorraine has been an incredible experience and while I’m sad to be leaving at such an exciting time for Label1, I am delighted to be joining Kelly and the Factual Entertainment team at Channel 4. I absolutely love the sort of smart, warm, revealing formats that Channel 4 has always been at the forefront of innovating. The chance to work on much-loved existing series, and to commission the next wave of ambitious formats, is simply irresistible."
