Crisell worked for The Mail on Sunday for a year, and then for a year in radio. She then worked for the ITV regional station, Tyne Tees Television, as a reporter and newsreader for North East Tonight.


She started as a Newsround presenter in February 2003 shortly after previous chief anchor Becky Jago's departure. Significant stories which Crisell was involved in reporting included the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami in which she travelled to Indonesia to see in person the effects of the disaster. She also travelled to Athens in Greece to give daily reports on the 2004 Summer Olympics. In addition to serious reports, she also presented more light-hearted stories, including a report on the Harry Potter-inspired rise of magic in the UK that ended with her being sawn in half by a magician in an illusion called Clearly Impossible.
