Laura Hamilton from "Fort Boyard – Ultimate Challenge" is the host of Disney XD's adventure competition series.

After graduating from Dartford Grammar Girls School in Britain, Laura Hamilton decided to forgo studying for a degree in law and psychology and instead take a job offer at Channel 4 television, making tea for Dermot O'Leary. During her one-year contract at the channel, Laura gained enough experience to leave and work as a freelance Assistant Floor Manager. In doing so, she worked on a variety of productions including "Top of the Pops," "The Buckingham Palace Jubilee Celebrations," "The Games," "T4," "Party in the Park," "Robbie Williams at Knebworth" and "Big Brother." The skills she acquired then enabled her to work as a 2nd/3rd Assistant Director on shows such as "Family Affairs," "The Bill," "Harry Potter" and "Stardust."

After 4 years of working behind the scenes, and with her passion for performing, Laura got her first break and moved to "the other side of the camera." She was cast as Melody in the popular pre-school show "Fun Song Factory" for CITV. A total of 52 episodes were filmed and are still airing in the UK, Asia and Australia. The show's success was followed by a DVD release, two studio albums and a UK tour where the group performed live supporting Lemar and Brian McFadden. Laura was involved with "Fun Song Factory" for two and a half years during which time she appeared in the films "Dead Man's Cards" and "Magicians." She was also the face of Citibank for their European Campaign.

In 2006, Laura became the female face of kids' TV channel Nickelodeon. She presented "Nickheads," "Slime Across the UK," "ME:TV (LIVE)" and the "UK Kids' Choice Awards" with McFly in 2007 and Danni Minogue in 2008 for MTV. She has been covered in a great deal of Slime! But it has had its advantages; she has had the opportunity to cover many red carpet events and press junkets in both the UK and US (where she holds a work visa). She has interviewed the likes of David De Rothschild, Gwen Stefani, Queen Latifah, Maroon 5, Ice Cube, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff, Hayden Panetierre as well as "Drake and Josh"! She also appeared on Cartoon Network & Boomerang's popular Kids' Karaoke show "Staraoke."

In March 2008, Laura started guest presenting GMTV's popular weekend show "Toonattik." During the same year she was involved in an exciting new show with Endemol — a fashion design show for children, "The Bratz Design Academy," where up and coming designers worked with Laura to create a dress she wore at an awards ceremony.

In 2011 she was chosen as one of the 16 celebrities to participate in ITV1's flagship show "Dancing on Ice" 2011. She soon captured the audience with her fun and friendly personality, sheer determination and lust for speed and danger! Her hard work paid off when she made it through to the final and 8.8 million people saw her awarded with 2nd place.

In her spare time Laura loves extreme sports. She has been a keen skier since the age of 9, enjoys wakeboarding and waterskiing and has also skydived from 1400 feet. With a passion for travel, she has seen many parts of the world including East and West America, India, North Africa, UAE, Cuba, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, Fiji and Iceland. She loves cars, interior design and property renovation and brought her first project funded entirely on her own at just 19 years old!
