I anchor the award-winning ITV lunchtime talk show 'Loose Women.' Before I joined the show in 2007, I was best-known as one of the core team of presenters on the ITV breakfast programme GMTV. On New Year's Eve 2008, I left the show after 11 years to concentrate on Loose Women and enjoy the benefits of a full night's sleep.
I am a journalist; I started as a freelance travel writer in 1993, then became a writer/sub in 1994 for Central Press Features based in London. I have written for Red, Best, Scottish Woman and numerous weekly women's magazines. I currently write a weekly interior design column for The Mirror newspaper and I am a freelance writer for the online women's magazine Standard Issue.
In 2012 I released my self-penned autobiography 'Confessions Of A Good Girl', about my life growing up on a sugar plantation in the Caribbean, travelling the world as a young back packer and unveiling the adventurous life of a television presenter. I'm very proud that it spent two weeks at No 1 in the Sunday Times Best Seller list.
In 2011 I launched Diamonique by Andrea McLean at QVC, a beautiful jewellery range which is now one of the flagship shopping channel's best selling ranges. You can see it at www.qvcuk.com.
