Anne Josephine Robinson (born September 26, 1944) is a British television presenter, most famous for hosting the BBC game show The Weakest Link. She also hosted the NBC primetime version of the show, though the syndicated version is hosted by George Gray.
She began her career as a journalist, and at one time worked for Robert Maxwell (whom she greatly admired) on the staff of the Daily Mirror. She began appearing on BBC television during the 1980s, on programmes such as Points of View and Watchdog. She caused a furore when she appeared on the comedy show, Room 101, and made derisive comments about the Welsh. The "dominatrix" persona she adopts for the purposes of The Weakest Link is her own invention. Currently, she also hosts the BBC's out-takes programme, Out-Take TV .
