LARA LEWINGTON'S EXPERIENCE IS VAST AND VARIED.
Lara can currently be seen reporting on the BBC's flagship technology show, Click (BBC1 / BBC2 / BBC World / BBC News Channel), as well as talking sunshine and showers as a weather presenter for BBC1, where she covers national and regional forecasts as well as working across a number of the BBC's radio stations.
Previously the face of Five News' weather and showbiz, Lara's time at Channel 5 attracted quite a bit of attention. It didn't take long for her to start being invited on countless 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 ITV1's The Impressionable Jon Culshaw, to name but a few.
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 reveal more than they should. Fun, witty and not to be underestimated, Lara asks the questions - and gets the answers - on the matters we all want to hear about. Whether it's reporting from star studded events, a sit down chat or making a news package on breaking stories from the world of entertainment, Lara's cheeky charm always gets the best out of people. Her interviewees have included 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 combined her two loves - property and entertainment - by writing occasional celebrity home features for The Mail on Sunday.
Prior to her days at Five News, Lara worked on the BBC's Liquid News. She has hundreds of hours of live studio and location experience in news, programmes and entertainment such as ITV's Celebrities Exposed, Five's Greatest Ever Movies, Five's Milkshake, BBC2's Newsnight and Channel 4's Ri:se. She has regularly appeared as a panellist and talking head - discussing celebrity, entertainment and fashion and can be seen worldwide on E!.
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.
