Lucy McGuire is an award-winning travel and lifestyle journalist and blogger who learnt the ropes as a roving reporter with the Manchester Evening News.
Three years of doing door knocks and writing the phrase 'angry residents' was enough, so she upped sticks to London to write on lifestyle and travel.
Her career highlights include visiting some of the world's most beautiful places and getting to sample Michelin star-worthy restaurants. But she's just as happy enjoying a no-frills restaurant on her doorstep in Brixton.
Lucy co-authored an e-book The London Street Food Guide, loves keeping fit and has a habit of setting herself ridiculous challenges (London Marathon, never again). Her Psychology Honours degree comes in handy now and again and she often wonders what the big theorists would say about the people who become journalists.
