The 40-year-old presenter revealed she was living with her partner Sara and their dog Mavis in an interview with Ariel.

The couple have been together for about a year.

‘Everyone has known for years that Jane is gay,’ a colleague said.

‘She hasn’t made a secret of it at the BBC and although she has had other girlfriends over the years, this one seems to be the one.’

However, she describes her hardest job as dealing with the Madeleine McCann case.

‘I was there the day after she disappeared and ended up being there for the whole of May,’ she told Ariel.

‘It was emotionally draining, that lack of resolution.I’m not a parent but I don’t need to be one to know how absolutely horrific it must be.’

Miss Hill’s lists her interests as the theatre, food and wine and going to the gym.

She admits to being an Archers addict on her BBC profile.
