Born in East Dulwich, South London, Perkins is the daughter of Bert Perkins, who worked as a local car dealer, and Ann Perkins, who was a secretary, she has two younger siblings. She attended Croham Hurst School for girls and later on studied English at New Hall, University of Cambridge. During her time at Cambridge, she met fellow comic Mel Giedroyc; the two became great friends and created the duo “Mel and Sue.” They started their career in the ‘90s doing gigs and shows, and their breakthrough came when they appeared in an episode of the television series “French & Saunders.”

Perkins together with Giedroyc would later have their own show entitled “Light Lunch”, wherein they invited a celebrity guest to cook for them and a guest celebrity. The show became a hit and lasted a couple of years, and was even renamed “Late Lunch.” The early years of their career helped establish them as comedians and also increased their net worth.

After their team up, Perkins went solo for a while and appeared in various television shows, including “Celebrity Big Brother” in 2002, “Celebrity MasterChef” in 2006, and the popular series “Edwardian Supersize Me” in 2007 that later had spin-offs entitled “The Supersizers Go” and “The Supersizers Eat” in 2008, all adding to her net worth.

In 2010, Perkins once again teamed up with Giedroyc when they co-presented the show “The Great British Bake Off”, which they hosted until 2016.

Aside from a thriving career in television, Perkins has also had a great time on radio. She served as a panelist on the Radio 4 show “The News Quiz”, was heard in “It’s Been a Bad Week”, and also “The 99p Challenge”. Her time on radio has also helped raise her wealth.

Today, Perkins is still active in the entertainment industry. She recently helped present various shows including “The Big Spell”, “Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief” with her partner Giedroyc, and also hosted “The British Academy Television Awards” all in 2017. In 2018 she also hosted the one-off documentary “Sue Perkins and the Chimp Sanctuary”, and is involved in an upcoming series entitled “The Generation Game.”

In terms of her personal life, Perkins is currently dating Anna Richardson also a TV presenter. She was known to have dated Rhona Cameron, who outed her as a lesbian in 2002 in the show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.” She was also in a long-term relationship with artist Kate Williams from 2002 to 2009.
