Kim Woddburn & Mike Chalut


Show hosts for Kim's Rude Awakenings:
Kim Woodburn

Inspired by watching her fastidious grandmother at work, Kim Woodburn left school at fifteen to start her own professional cleaning career.  After her first live-in job in Liverpool, Kim enjoyed stints in retail and modelling, but her focus remained squarely on scrubbing and scouring.  Kim made her first television appearance in 1983 modelling handmade knitwear for her own company.  And twenty years later, was hand picked to co-host the runaway hit series, How Clean Is Your House?  Along with her co-host Aggie, Kim also filmed Too Posh to Wash for Channel 4, and the 2006 documentary How Clean Is Your Hospital?

The duo’s publishing exploits include The Cleaning Bible, Too Posh to Wash, and the best-selling How Clean Is Your House?  In 2006, Kim chronicled her difficult childhood in the powerful autobiography, Unbeaten.  Kim is currently in Canada filming her new series Kim’s Rude Awakening for W Network.

Mike Chalut

Before his assignment as second in command on Kim’s Rude Awakenings, Michael was busy assisting wedding planner extraordinaire, Jane Dayus-Hinch, in the hilarious second season of Wedding SOS (Slice Network).  Together, the high-energy duo saved helpless and hapless couples from their own wedding disasters!  Michael is also the VIP host of INK Entertainment where he has dazzled A-list celebrities including Hilary Duff, Paris Hilton and The Rolling Stones.

Voted one of Toronto’s Top Talkers by the National Post, Michael Chalut’s boundless energy, raw talent and good looks have also caught the attention of The Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail.
