Career

Quan joined the SBC in 1992. In 1996, she was fired by TCS over a fight at a bowling alley and for driving without a valid license.

Quan joined SPH MediaWorks in 2000. When SPH MediaWorks merged with MediaCorp, she was transferred to MediaCorp, marking her return to the company after almost 9 years.

In Asian Television Award 2008, she obtained the Best Entertainment Presenter. In Star Awards 2005 & Star Awards 2014, she won Best Variety Show Host. She won Best Info-ed Programme Show Host at the Star Awards 2015. She won Best Programme Host from 2017 to 2019. She was nominated a total of 12 times for Best Programme Host.

Controversy

In 1996, Quan was fined S$1,000 after a fight with a bowling alley assistant.[1]

In 2010, Quan was accused of abusing a taxi driver. It was alleged that she was angry that the taxi driver did not help with loading her luggage onto the taxi and throwing her forward while stopping sharply at a junction. She supposedly alighted, kicked the car door and then kicked the taxi driver in the groin. She subsequently locked herself in the taxi and messed the taxi up.[2] She had hired Subhas Anandan to represent her after the incident.[3] She was charged with two counts of mischief and one count of using criminal force.[1]

On 29 December 2011, Quan Yi Feng was sentenced to 15 months' probation in court. Quan was charged with damaging a taxi meter, pulling out the receipt printer of a cab and spilling water on the receipt printer. Two other charges—of kicking the right passenger door of the taxi, and pushing and attempting to kick the 53-year-old taxi driver—were also taken into consideration.

She had to attend psychological therapy and counselling sessions as part of her probation.[4]

In July 2013, Quan had a brush with the law once again when she knocked down a pedestrian at a crossing. Quan pleaded guilty to one count of inconsiderate driving under the Road Traffic Act and was fined S$800 and banned from driving for three months.[5]

Personal life

Quan married former MediaCorp actor Peter Yu in 1998 after meeting while filming Happy Travel Agency.[6] They have a daughter, Eleanor Lee, born on 12 October 1999. Quan and Yu divorced on 3 January 2009 and share custody of their daughter.[7][8]
