Lauren first came into the spotlight as a singer in the cult indie group Kenickie, later moving into broadcasting, presenting shows such as CD:UK, The Culture Show, The Brits, and Glastonbury. She has interviewed everyone from Sir Paul McCartney, U2, and Madonna to Dizzee Rascal and Little Boots.

After encouragement from her husband of four years (who said "you're an excellent speller") Lauren recently began writing again. She is a Grazia columnist and has also written for the Guardian.
