Sandra Birgitte Toksvig, 63, was born in Denmark on May 3, 1958.
Known as Sandi, she is the daughter of a Danish journalist.
Pint-sized Sandi is 4ft 11, and she began a career in comedy while studying at Cambridge University.

After more than a decade of guest appearances, Sandi became the face of QI in 2016.
She later joined Noel Fielding as co-presenter of Great British Bake Off.
At the time, she revealed she was the highest-paid star on the show.
“On my show, nobody’s being paid more than me,” she told The Sun.
“I don’t ask what they’re being paid — I just make sure they’re not getting more than me.”
She left in 2020, but returned to Channel 4 this year to host Can I Improve My Memory?
Her years of working have helped her amass quite a fortune.
The TV presenter is thought to be worth a whopping £5.77million.
