Forbes presented the cooking slot on Going Live!, a position she won after bombarding the production office with ideas for 'makes'. She was then selected as co-presenter for the replacement BBC children's show Live & Kicking with Andi Peters from 1993 through to 1996 and also presented ITV's teenage problem show Speakeasy.

Alongside Mark Radcliffe, Forbes has co-hosted the Steve Wright show on BBC Radio 2. Also on BBC Radio 2 Emma presented a Saturday show from 6-8pm alongside comedian Alan Carr called Going Out with Alan Carr, and a Sunday morning breakfast show, replacing Pete Mitchell. On 13 December 2009, Emma announced that she would no longer be presenting her Sunday show on BBC Radio 2, but she continued to co-present Going Out With Alan Carr on Saturday evenings until April 2010.

From March 2011, Forbes was a regular discussion contributor on ITV's daytime show The Alan Titchmarsh Show, which ended in November 2014.

Personal life

Forbes lives with her banker husband Graham Clempson (married September 1987), their two children, Lily (born 1996) and Sam (born 1999) and their Shih Tzu dog Scooby. She suffered from postnatal depression after both births. Forbes was Richard Attenborough's god-daughter.

When she took a professional break to have her two children, Forbes and her journalist sister Sarah Standing created the boutique children's fantasy shop "Semmalina" in Belgravia, London. Their other two resultant business ventures are "Star Bags" which creates the perfect 'goody bag' for children's parties; and "Star Grub" – boxes of children's party food to order. Forbes also designs various celebrity charity parties, and food product presentations.

Forbes is a patron of Great Ormond Street Hospital and is a supporter of Bolton Wanderers, as was her late father.
