Edith Bliss

Edith Bliss is an Australian television presenter, best known as a reporter on the children's program "Simon Townsend's Wonder World" in the 1980s. She was the longest serving reporter. Edith was discovered by producer, Andrew Thomas Wilson, whilst working in a shoe store. She was signed to GO Records, a label developed by Chris Gilbey and Barry Weston for the Grundy Organisation. Edith was also an occasional referee on the game show "It's a Knockout" who stood out because instead of saying a simple "ready set go" when starting games, she'd make short rhymes and recite them. Bliss released an album for EMI named Sheer Bliss and had a hit with "If it's Love You Want", (co-written by Alan Caswell, who also wrote "On The Inside") as performed on ABC's 'Countdown' program on 11 November 1979. The next two singles, "Two Single Beds" and "Heart of Stone" failed to dent the charts though. Edith was named by Schwarzkopf products in a marketing campaign as their 'Face of the Eighties'.

In 1993 she re-teamed with Simon Townsend to be a reviewer on his ABC program "TVTV".

In 2006, she appeared (under the married name of Edith Tanner) as a contestant on the final episode of the Australian version of "Wheel of Fortune" and won, effectively making her that show's final and undefeated champion.To show everyone what happens now, Edith appeared on Where Are They Now on the Seven Network.Edith is married with four children; Eden, Madison, Harrison and Lawson, all with the surname of her husband, former Wonder World sound mixer, Mark Tanner.Edith is turning 49 on the 28th of September 2008.
