Carol Smillie here! Welcome to my very own official website. I have been up in the attic rummaging through the archives and have put together a mix of video clips and photos that I hope give a flavour of my career so far. You can also find out about my current TV projects, corporate work, events, awards ceremonies, writing, and involvement with some very worthwhile charities. You may even find a few surprises! I hope you enjoy your visit.





Cash For Kids





Calling all girlfriends! I have now started a brand new business with my friend Annabel Croft. DiaryDolls are brand new to the UK and European market and were born out of a chance conversation on a shopping trip on holiday in Portugal last year about being women and mothers of teenage daughters. I have learned so much about bringing a product to market and am so excited to tell you all about it! Take a look HERE!
