She then read politics and economics at the University of Edinburgh. She joined Central Television in Birmingham in 1984, where she was able to secure an hour-long interview with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 10 Downing Street, which did much for her career.

She has also presented Kaye for the BBC and anchored the ITV day-time show Loose Women between 1999 and 2006, as well as making regular appearances on the intelligent game-show Countdown. Having also worked on Radio 5 Live, she took on presenting a morning phone-in programme Call Kaye for Radio Scotland in 2010. Adams also writes a weekly column in the Daily Record newspaper.

In 2005, Adams was appointed a UNICEF UK Ambassador for Scotland.

She now lives in Glasgow with her partner and two children.
