Technology Presenter & Journalist
Lara is a TV presenter and journalist, specialising in lifestyle technology. She presents on the BBC’s technology show, Click, and is the technology columnist for the UK’s biggest selling weekly magazine, Woman.
Before focusing on her true passion, technology, Lara’s presenting experience was vast. She spent six years as the face of Five News’ weather and showbiz. Her time at Channel 5 attracted quite a bit of attention, with appearances including BBC1’s The Weakest Link: News and Weather special, BBC1’s Let’s Dance for Sports Relief, ITV1’s Win, Lose or Draw and a weekly sketch on ITV1’s The Impressionable Jon Culshaw.
She went on to work as the showbiz reporter for Sky News, continuing to interview the biggest names in entertainment, and cover some of the stories of a generation – including being live on air the night Michael Jackson died.
Fun, witty, and not to be underestimated, Lara’s cheeky charm helped her get answers to the questions that few dared to ask. Star studded events, sit down chats and news packages, saw her talk to Michael Douglas, Leonardo Di Caprio, Cameron Diaz, Joan Collins, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, J Lo, Alice Cooper, Carla Bruni and scores of others.
Some of Lara’s more random appearances include playing a daytime TV presenter in British comedy feature film, The Shouting Men (released in cinemas in March 2010), acting alongside Paul Whitehouse in BBC2 comedy Happiness, and presenting the weather on a monitor in The Daily Planet newsroom in Hollywood blockbuster Superman Returns.
Lara is married to Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis. Their daughter, Sapphire, was born in November 2012.
