Gaby Roslin (born July 12, 1964) is a British television presenter.

She is the daughter of BBC stalwart Clive Roslin; she was born and grew up in London. She attended the Guildford School of Acting and followed a career in live television presenting. She first presented Hippo on the Superchannel and then Motormouth on ITV from 1989 until 1992. At the end of that show she was approached by Planet 24 to present their new early-morning programme The Big Breakfast alongside Chris Evans. Their on-screen chemistry was popular with young viewers and Roslin became essential pre-school viewing around much of the country. Evans left the show in 1994 and Roslin partnered with former Neighbours star Mark Little. In 1996 she called time on the early mornings.

Roslin has presented Children in Need each year since 1994. Other presenting BBC roles include Watchdog Healthcheck, Whatever You Want and A Question of TV. She was one of several presenters for the BBC's 2000 Today, a 28-hour long programme to see in the year 2000. She briefly returned to breakfast television as a roving reporter for Breakfast in 2002.

In 2003 Roslin switched allegiances to Five where she co-hosted The Terry and Gaby Show alongside Children in Need co-presenter Terry Wogan. The magazine format could not compete with the similar and long-established This Morning and the show ended after 200 performances on March 26, 2004.

In 2004, she also teamed up with Terry Wogan to co-host the first edition of Eurovision - Making Your Mind Up, the revamped successor to A Song for Europe, the UK's long-running pre-selection show for the Eurovision Song Contest. However for the 2005 edition her place was taken by Natasha Kaplinsky.

In 2005 she appeared in a national tour in the stage version of When Harry Met Sally... and later in the year sang and danced in the London stage vesion of Chicago.

Roslin married Colin Peel in 1995, they divorced in 2004. They have a daughter, Libbi-Jack.
