    After living in America for 8 years, June moved back to her hometown of London in 2015, and appears as a regular panelist on ITV’s ‘Loose Women’ and on Sky News’ new weekly current affairs discussion show, ‘The Pledge’.

    In 2016, June was featured in several large campaigns. She was announced as the official ambassador for Superdrug’s Shades of Beauty campaign, to tackle product inequality in high street beauty, with the aim of making it more accessible for black and Asian women to shop affordably on the high street.

June also featured in a series of videos for Activia’s latest campaign, encouraging women to reflect on their lives and the ways they can stay InSync by balancing career success, family life and finding personal fulfillment. June discusses the importance of charity work and how she stays InSync with meditation.

    In addition, June featured in Sky Living’s ‘On the sofa with…’ campaign which included publication in the ES magazine and was also part of Sony’s ‘Find Your X’ campaign in which she spent a day capturing her passions – fashion, food and friends – with a new Xperia X from Sony.
