British Talent Agency InterTalent Loses Agents & Stars As It Reshuffles TV Division & Eyes TikTok Relationship

EXCLUSIVE: UK talent agency InterTalent, run by Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE, is reshuffling its TV presenting division following the departure of a number of senior agents.

Deadline understands that a number of agents have left the company over the last few months, leading to changes in representation for a handful of its top stars.

Grant Michaels, who previously ran InterTalent Rights, and Rebecca Johnson are among the agents who have left the agency in recent months with the pair setting up Encanta Talent Management.

Their departure means that stars including Judge Rinder host Robert Rinder and First Dates star Fred Siriex will now be co-represented by Encanta as well as InterTalent.

Separately, rising star Clara Amfo, who hosts a show on BBC Radio One and presented Top of the Pops on BBC One, has moved to YMU Group, the company formerly known as James Grant Group.

Deadline understands that the companys broadcast division Intertalent Rights had lost money over the last twelve months. Sources suggest that the group was not helped by high overhead costs, including pricey London office space – the business has recently moved from its prestigious Charlotte Street address in London to an office in nearby Fitzrovia.

Last year, the business rebranded as InterTalent Rights Group, bringing together its broadcast and branding arm Roar Group, acting agency Cole Kitchenn and comedy division CKP as well as its Roar sport and music arms.

Its understood that InterTalent will still represent stars including Kelly Brook, star of NBC comedy One Big Happy, Dame Joan Collins, breakfast TV presenters Susanna Reid and Lorraine Kelly and Jane Seymour.
