After graduating, Jameela worked in London as a model and model scout while teaching English as a foreign language.
In 2008 she applied for a job at Channel 4 and after screen tests was picked to present the Music Zone on E4. She’s been presenting T4 since 2009 and replaced Alexa Chung on the weekday morning music show Freshly Squeezed that same year.
