Claire Fordham is an LA based British writer, producer, journalist and podcaster who has worked for the BBC, ITN, SKY News and written a popular weekly column for Britain's top selling newspaper The Sun. Her podcast ‘The Chat with Claire Fordham’ sees her interviewing interesting and inspiring people who she says: “you may not have heard of but should.”
Her acclaimed book ‘Plus One: A Year in the Life of a Hollywood Nobody,’ inspired the mockumentary ‘The Making of Plus One’ starring Jennifer Tilly, Geraldine Chaplin and John Sessions. It tells the semi-autobiographical story of her moving to LA to live with her celebrity sister - the acclaimed singer songwriter Julia Fordham. What follows is laugh-out-loud accounts of her frequently being her famous sister’s “Plus One” – the nameless guest invited to all the best events and parties in Hollywood where nothing is too surreal.
Claire’s latest book ‘Life Lessons for Mia Rose: An Irreverent Guide to Living and Loving Well’ was inspired by the birth of her granddaughter. With love and humour in equal measure, Claire shares her experiences on her own lessons learned.
In this episode Claire chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about life with a famous sibling, making it as a writer, the crazy side of Hollywood and the moment she met her celebrity crush George Clooney…
