Jan Leeming, actor, author, broadcaster and Just You Ambassador, will be enlightening her audience with tales of India and single traveller holidays when she takes to the stage at the 50+ Show, Olympia, London on 16th July.

Travel has always been in Jan’s blood, born in Kent she moved ‘down under’ to Australia, where in 1963, while in Sydney, she made history by becoming the first woman newsreader on television.

On returning to the UK, Jan’s TV career went into overdrive, joining Granada TV as a newsreader, fronting her own show, Women Only, on HTV for six years, presenting Pebble Mill and The Food Programme and reading the BBC news for seven years.

Most recently Jan was back on the BBC as she and her fellow celebrities entertained with their exploration of India in the Real Marigold Hotel.

“I am really looking forward to the 50+ show and speaking to people, who like me find the thought of going on holiday on my own incredibly daunting. I recently travelled with Just You holidays to Tuscany with a wonderful group of like-minded adventurers and it completely changed my mind about solo holidays. I will also be giving everyone an insight into what there is to see in this beautiful part of Italy,” said Jan.

Just You offers great value holidays to 60 countries on every continent, including Antarctica. Just You holidays include flights, where necessary, all local transfers, a room of their own for each customer with no single supplement, a Just You Tour Manager and a wide range of included excursions

Just You holidays aren't just for single people, they're for anyone who wants to travel solo and experience a new destination in good company.

Jan Leeming will be speaking in the Travel Seminar theatre at 1415hrs on Saturday, 16th July at the 50+ Show at Olympia, London. For free tickets visit –
