Yvonne Cobb

Yvonne Cobb is a broadcaster, chef and Deaf advocate who has broken barriers and achieved several notable firsts during her career. Yvonne is known as the first Deaf chef to appear on popular TV shows like This Morning (ITV) and Morning Live (BBC One), where she presents cookery demonstrations and promotes the use of British Sign Language (BSL). She has also co-hosted BBC's See Hear since 2018 and became the first Deaf, female reporter on BBC News in 2022.

In addition to her broadcasting work, Yvonne is an award-winning entrepreneur who runs her own cookery business called Yumma Food. She utilises BSL to teach cookery and healthy eating skills to people of all ages, both in-person and online. With over 20 years of experience in teaching and assessing BSL, Yvonne also delivers training on various subjects to both Deaf and hearing communities. She has a particular focus on empowering women, raising awareness about menopause in BSL, and regularly shares cookery tips and recipes across her social media accounts.
