AWARD-winning presenter Gok Wan returns to the Channel 4 Racing fold for Glorious Goodwood.

Channel 4’s investment in the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting sees Gok present the fashion and lifestyle content for the final three days, starting on Ladies Day (Thursday, July 31).

Ladies Day features the popular fundraiser – The Magnolia Cup – a ladies-only charity race.

Presenting from the beautiful West Sussex track, Gok will ensure style and fashion is at the forefront of Channel 4’s coverage.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my Royal Ascot debut and just love everything about horseracing,” said Gok.

“It’s a joy to be re-joining the Channel 4 Racing team at Glorious Goodwood and I will be looking to build on from my original debut.”

Ed Havard, Channel 4’s head of special programmes and live events, said: “Gok’s Channel 4 Racing debut was a resounding hit with our audience and proved that no-one brings fashion to life like Gok.

“We are delighted that he will present live from Glorious Goodwood which will complement our superb racing coverage”

Adam Waterworth, managing director for Goodwood Racecourse said: “Following the success of Gok Wan, we are delighted to have him as our fashion correspondent during the last three days of Glorious Goodwood. On the Thursday we have the Magnolia Cup charity race and then on the Friday for the first time, we host the L’Ormarins Best Dressed Ladies competition with a fantastic prize of a trip to South Africa in January.

“Racegoers are reminded to enter they need to be dressed in blue and white and I’m sure Gok will have some great tips of what to wear.”
