it sums up my fabulous years at woman&home!

“Women don’t want to be defined by their age – that’s just a number on your passport. Being ageless is about having a ‘can do’ attitude. Everything really is possible”“You are always at the heart of everything we do” I’ve had the time of my life as Editorial Director of woman&home. I joined w&h in 2000, and now, almost 200 issues later, I still feel as passionate about this magazine as I was the first day I started. It’s true what they say – time flies when you’re enjoying yourself. My vision was to make w&h the first brand to recognise that women didn’t want to be defined by their age. I’ve always believed that being ageless is an attitude, not a number on your passport. That “can do” attitude means that…

meet the team on woman&home

SANDRA KEARNS is my brilliant assistant. She keeps me organised, on track and generally on time – I simply could not have functioned without her. She is the bedrock of the w&h team. EMMA JUSTICE is my BSME-awardwinning deputy – I was so proud when she won this year. She’s funny, warm and great at her job, and fixed some of our bestselling cover stars. TESSA HILTON, editor at large, turns our ideas into top-quality features, which make w&h stand out from the rest. She has launched many top writers and is an incredible mentor.

DAVID DOWDING, creative director, has to cope…

my new challenge in my 70s

Walking out of the Bake Off tent and into the sunshine for a tea break, Prue Leith, who has replaced Mary Berry as a judge on Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off , is smiling. She and fellow judge Paul Hollywood, alongside new presenters Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, have just given the remaining bakers their technical challenge. “I’ve worked in TV for 50 years, but this is the first programme I’ve really enjoyed doing all the time,” she says, relishing the fact that she is starting an exciting new chapter at the age of 77. Prue married John Playfair, a retired designer, last year and they live, separately, in the Cotswolds. Prue has a son, Daniel, from her previous marriage to the late Rayne Kruger, and an adopted daughter,…

Perfect summer escape? I’d rather be at home than anywhere in the world! What can’t you live without? Really good food. I get cross if food is bad. What has Bake Off taught you so far? That making TV can be fun. Signature bake? Polenta cake. What kind of grandmother are you? Neglectful. What’s the one thing you want to master? I want to be able to sing. I’ve tried – and I cannot. What are you best at? I have lots of energy so I don’t get tired. And worst? I’m very tactless and often offend people. The mantra you live by? Never be bored. And don’t eat anything if it’s not worth the calories!…
