Carol McGiffin was born in London in 1960, and grew up in Kent with her two sisters Kim and Tracy and her brother Mark. A radio and television broadcaster, Carol is probably best known as the most outspoken member of the hit ITV talk show, Loose Women. Carol has been on the show for nearly a decade and recently joined the other girls to collect a National Television Award - beating stiff competition from Top Gear and The Apprentice. Carol began her broadcasting career as a co-host with Chris Evans on GLR, and went on to marry him in 1991, though they separated two years later. She also worked alongside Paul Ross on the award-winning breakfast show on Talk Radio, before working at LBC and Loose Women. She lives with her fiance Mark in London.
