Romaine has worked for William Hill for over 25 years, starting in the telephone betting credit race room as a telephonist, eventually becoming staff supervisor. She also hosted the William Hill boxes at the southern race courses for a few years but the majority of her time at William Hill has been in the Press Office.

Passionate about books, Romaine looks after the William Hill Sports Book of the Year – the world’s richest sports book prize and is proud to have seen it grow from small beginnings to the hugely respected award it is today. .

Outside work, Romaine loves nothing better than to relax to the likes of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Diana Krall and Ella Fitzgerald and when she’s not reading or listening to music, LBC’s Steve Allen always manages to brighten her day! She also enjoys a good film but refuses to watch anything that has ‘zany’ or ‘madcap’ in its synopsis!
