Kirstie Mary Allsopp (born 31 August 1971) is a British TV presenter known for the Channel 4 property programmes Location, Location, Location; Relocation, Relocation, Location Revisited, The Property Chain and Kirstie's Homemade Home. All but the last two were co-presented with Phil Spencer.
She is the daughter of Charles Henry Allsopp, 6th Baron Hindlip and former chairman of Christie's. She has a brother Henry, and two sisters, Sofie and Natasha. Due to her father's peerage, she is entitled to use the title The Honourable Kirstie Allsopp.
She was educated at several schools, including St. Clotilde's in Lechlade, Gloucestershire and Bedales, near Petersfield, Hampshire. After spending time in India teaching English, Allsopp returned to the UK and began a series of positions, working for Country Living and Food & Homes Magazine and her mother's business, Hindlip & Prentice Interiors, and studying at Christie's. Allsopp founded Kirmir Property Search.
Allsopp is an advisor to the Conservative Party on housing matters.
Her partner is property developer Ben Andersen, and they have two children: Bay Atlas (born July 2006), and Oscar (born August 2008). She is also stepmother to her husband's two children from a previous relationship, Hal and Orion. They currently live in London.
Allsopp has been accused (along with fellow property TV presenters) of fuelling irresponsible house purchases that led to the housing crash. Allsopp has defended herself from the charges, writing in The Times that "blaming such shows and their presenters for the present uncertain state of the property market is akin to blaming TV chefs for the great bulge in obesity".
