Helen Croydon is a best-selling author, journalist, producer and broadcaster. She’s a lively commentator on current and social affairs with a particular focus on social trends, modern families, gender equality and health and fitness.
As a journalist, she has written for The Telegraph, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, Metro, The Mirror, The Daily Mail and Mail Online and magazines such as Outdoor Fitness, Top Sante, Best, Bella and more.
As a producer, she is a reliable freelancer at ITV News, ITV London news and has produced at Good Morning Britain and various radio programmes.
As a on-screen broadcaster, you may have seen her reviewing the papers early in the morning on Sky News or late at night on BBC Radio London. She’s also appeared as a commentator on Newsnight, This Morning, Daybreak, Lorraine, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, BBC Breakfast, Woman’s Hour and more.
As an author, Helen first made her name with the best-selling dating memoir Sugar Daddy Diaries: When a Fantasy Became an Obsession (Mainstream Publishing, February 2011) and quickly became the go-to talking head on anything dating and relationships. (these were younger, wilder times!)
Her second book Screw the Fairytale: A Modern Guide to Love and Sex (John Blake Publishing, March 2014) is a funny polemic exploring modern models of relationships. Written in her signature ‘immersive’ style, Helen sets out to ask if the full-time, life-long cohabiting relationship is suited to modern independent lifestyles.
Her third book, This Girl Ran: Tales of a Party Girl Turned Triathlete, is out in February 2018 so watch this space!
Finally, she is partner of Nine Media Training. The business specialises in training PRs and comms teams on pitching to the media and prepping spokespeople for media interviews.
That’s the day job. Outside of journalism she’s a Team GB age-group triathlete (just don’t ask which age group!) and an endurance sport junkie. In 2015 she competed in ITU World Championships in Chicago.
