Jane Wendy Moore (born 17 May 1962 in Oxford, England) is a British journalist, author and television presenter.
Her father was a professor of mathematics at the University of Oxford, and her mother was a teacher. She went to primary school in Oxford, then went to the Worcester Grammar School for Girls (since 1983 the Worcester Sixth Form College) on Spetchley Road in Worcester, when her parents divorced. Since the divorce, she has not heard from her father. At school, she always wanted to be a journalist, but was told by her teachers that 'it was no job for a lady'. She studied journalism at the South Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education (now UWIC) in Cardiff, then trained at the Solihull News in 1981, moving to work full time at the Birmingham Mail and Birmingham Post.
She started part-time at the People in 1984, then later worked there. She had tried to find work at the Sun, but had never got any, and in 1985, a new newspaper called the Sunday Sport began, which was looking for journalists. She applied, thinking it was a genuine rival in quality to The Sun, and she was asked to be news editor at the age of 23. It came as a shock to her when she found out the true nature of the paper (the sexual content didn't offend her), and she left after a month. Kelvin Mackenzie had read about her and invited her for an interview, where she became editor of the Bizarre section of the Sun, when she was 23, working with his brother Craig, and Gary Bushell. She remained there for a year. She briefly became an estate agent for Townends, then returned to journalism, working at the short-lived Today newspaper in 1989. She became Features Editor at the Daily Mirror in 1993 and Woman's Editor at The Sun in 1995, becoming a columnist in 1996.
Moore is a columnist for The Sun and writes regular articles for The Sunday Times. She has also been writing for the Hello! magazine.
In television and radio she has presented the daily breakfast show on LBC and regularly co-presented the acclaimed British version of The View (Loose Women), ITV's This Morning and BBC1's Crimewatch Daily. Further on, Jane Moore is the author of the international best selling novels Fourplay (2001), The Ex Files (2003), and Love @ First Site (2005).
Recently, she has gone into acting, with being one of the main guest panellists on a BBC Three show called Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive, a comedic take on celebrity panel shows.
