Lara is a TV presenter and journalist, specialising in lifestyle technology. She can be seen on the BBC's technology show, Click (BBC One / BBC Two / BBC World News / BBC News Channel), and is the technology columnist for the UK's biggest selling weekly magazine, Woman. She also writes tech features for online magazine, Standard Issue.

Lara has hundreds of hours of live, studio, and location experience. She spent six years as the face of Five News' weather and showbiz, with her time at Channel 5 attracting quite a bit of attention. It didn't take long for her to start being invited on many other TV shows including BBC1's The Weakest Link: News and Weather special, BBC1's Let's Dance for Sports Relief, BBC1's Superstars: Battle of the Channels, ITV1's Britain's Best Dish: Celebrity Special, ITV1's Win, Lose or Draw and featuring in a weekly sketch on ITV1's The Impressionable Jon Culshaw.

As a trained journalist, Lara went on to work as a showbiz reporter for Sky News, which saw her not only live on air the night Michael Jackson died, but also reporting from the red carpet - interviewing some of the biggest names in showbiz, and investigating all areas of the entertainment industry, from Burlesque to Bollywood.

With a light touch and disarmingly charming style, her interviewees always revealed more than they should. Fun, witty and not to be underestimated, Lara asked the questions - and through her cheeky charm, got the answers - on the matters we all wanted to hear about. Star studded events, sit down chats and news packages, saw her interviewees include Michael Douglas, Leonardo Di Caprio, Cameron Diaz, Joan Collins, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, J Lo, Alice Cooper, Jerry Springer and scores of others.

Aside from television, she spent two years as a showbiz columnist, and has written celebrity home features for The Mail on Sunday.

Lara plays a daytime TV presenter in British comedy feature film, The Shouting Men, which was released in cinemas in March 2010. She has acted alongside Paul Whitehouse in BBC2 comedy, Happiness, and can be seen 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.
