India Willoughby is Britain’s first transgender television newsreader, reporter and presenter, currently working for ITV. Her unique journey has seen her grace the covers of newspaper and magazines worldwide and back in the UK she’s also a popular contributor to hit shows such as Loose Women and Lorraine, as well numerous other appearances on television and radio, including BBC 1’s Inside Out, BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC radio 4’s Womans Hour.
