ORE Oduba is never far from the TV screen – whether he is appearing on The One Show or presenting sporting action, Ore certainly knows his way around the small screen.
But what else is he known for, is he married and what is he currently working on?

Where is Ore Oduba from and how old is he?
Ore was born in November 1986 to Nigerian parents and was raised with his brother and two sisters in Dorset.
He was privately educated and went on to study Sports Science and Social Science at Loughborough University, graduating in 2008.
From then he dived straight into broadcasting and hasn’t looked back since.
Ore had always aspired to have a career in sports broadcasting and joined Newsround in 2008 as a reporter and breakfast bulletin presenter before being promoted to deputy presenter the following year.
As part of his role he also presented Sportsround until it was cancelled in 2010 and he left Newsround in 2014.
He presents sports bulletins for BBC Breakfast and Radio 5 Live and has also hosted Match of the Day: Kickabout, Claimed and Shamed and the Commonwealth and Youth Games.
Most recently, he was a prominent part of the BBC’s coverage of the athletic World Championships.

Since his glorious victory on Strictly, Ore has taken up occasional presenting stints both on ITV’s This Morning and BBC’s The One Show.
He has appeared on ITV show Play to the Whistle, as well as the newly revamped Top Gear – although his appearance descended into chaos when he lost control of the car on the Top Gear track.
Is Ore Oduba married?
Ore met girlfriend Portia in 2010 at an event at his university and he proposed to her in 2014.
They married in November 2015, and he has since admitted that he cried with happiness all through the day.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Ore revealed that Portia was completely backing him in the show, even though some couples dread the infamous Strictly curse.
At the 2017 TV BAFTAs, Ore was pictured holding hands with Irish presenter Laura as he helped her back to her hotel.
The pair went on to share sweet Instagram posts about “being dance floor buddies for life” as they struck a flashy dance pose at the event.
In August 2017, Ore announced that wife Portia is pregnant with their first child.
He’s likely to become a father in early 2018.
Not sure what I did to deserve this one. My best friend, the most amazing wife and soon to be the most amazing mum 💗💙 Been a pretty life-changing last 12 months, now @portiajett and I are preparing for our biggest adventure yet! Can't hide our excitement anymore 👶🏽 Starting a family has always been our dream. And no prizes for guessing.. THERE. WILL. BE. TEARS!!!! 😭😭😭 #babynews #pregnancyannouncement #tinydancer
What happened to Ore on Strictly 2016?
Ore became a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing 2016 and was paired with professional dancer Karen.
And the waterworks from his wedding were turned back on as he revealed he got emotional when he got the call to say he was on the show.
After pulling off three stunning dance routines in the final, Ore sobbed as he was crowned the winner of Strictly Come Dancing.
While thousands of delighted fans took to social media to congratulate the Strictly winner, some accused the BBC of fixing the show by over-marking one of their own presenters.

PIERS Morgan was left outraged today as Good Morning Britain viewers called for him to be sacked.
His co-star Susanna Reid launched a poll on the show to find whether fans at think he should be allowed to keep his job – and she announced 52 percent had voted to get Piers fired.
ITV Susanna Reid launched a poll to find out whether viewers think Piers Morgan should be sacked
The poll was announced at the start of this morning's show.
Susanna was urging viewers to vote on whether they think Piers should lose his job in a survey hosted on Twitter.
She later announced that more than half of the vote had gone in favour of a sacking.
Susanna said: "Should Piers Morgan be sacked before Christmas? Fifty two percent says yes."
ITV Piers said the British public were going to get him fired unless they voted to keep him
She then made a cheeky joke about the Brexit referendum, adding: "As we know 52 percent enough to rule the roost in elections…
"We will have to trigger Article 50."
Piers was not happy with the outcome and read out a message from one viewer who wanted him to say.
The newsman said: "[This viewer says] absolutely not [Piers should not be sacked] – it would become as dull as BBC Breakfast…"
ITV Susanna compared the poll to Brexit

NEIGHBOURS of the late George Michael wants the fan shrine to him removed.
The late musical icon – who died on Christmas Day last year – lived in his Highgate mansion before he died and fans have since turned an area outside it into a memorial garden with flowers, flags, pictures and letters to him.
The shrine has been left by George's devoted fans
However, the shrine has left some neighbours angry according to the Daily Star.
Susan Rose, chair of the Highgate Conservation Area advisory committee, told the newspaper: “One wonder’s what George Michael would think of it all outside the beautiful home that he looked after so well, and right where he erected a wonderful Christmas tree every year."
She added: “I think a statue would be great. “A lot of people in Highgate would like a permanent memorial rather than mounds of dead flowers."
It comes as it was revealed George's partner Fadi Fawaz will be spending Christmas in the house.
Splash News Locals have reportedly hit out at the memorial Fadi Fawaz Fadi Fawaz will be spending Christmas in George Michael's £5million Regent's Park pad – a year on from the singer's tragic death Fadi Fawaz shares video at late boyfriend George Michael's home
The heartbroken hairdresser, 44, recently shared a picture of wipers clearing his snow-covered windscreen to reveal the front of the impressive home, indicating he's very much still living there.
George is very much still in Fadi's thoughts as the first anniversary of his death approaches.
His Instagram followers sent him their best wishes, writing: "Hi Fadi, deepest sympathy to you…..time is the only healer. My father killed himself the day after Christmas so I understand what the month is like for you 😔💛🙏🏼✨😘✨☀️💪🏼Stay Strong.
"Poignant…. Father figure X

PRUE Leith shares a snap of her and Bake Off co-stars enjoying a Christmas dinner — before admitting she’s “no good at Twitter”.
The telly judge, 77, joined Channel 4 pals Paul Hollywood, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig — plus former judge Mary Berry, 82 — for a roast duck meal yesterday.
Prue shared the Christmas snap before quipping she's 'no good at Twitter'
But after forgetting to tag Sandi, 59, Noel, 44, and Paul, 51, in the social media post, she quipped: “but then I’m no good at Twitter am I??”
Prue was referencing the epic Twitter gaffe that saw her prematurely reveal Sophie Faldo, 34, as the competition winner in October.
Twitter Prue also shared this snap of Paul holding a marzipan pig made for the occasion by GBBO host Noel Fielding
