Nina Myskow was educated at Wykeham School in South Africa, Bell Baxter School in Scotland, and St Andrews University, where she read English and a lot of trashy novels.
She completed the novels but not the degree, and embarked on her writing career on the teenage magazine, Jackie. She was made editor, becoming the first female editor in the history of the publisher, DC Thomson.
Pop writer on The Sun, TV Critic on the Sunday People and the News of the World, her series of celebrity body image interviews, The Real Real Me, was a weekly feature in the Daily Mirror for four years. Her celebrity interviews are published in both national and international publications.
A judge on three series of New Faces, a regular panellist on Through The Keyhole, she presented her own show Nina vs The Rest on BSB and co-hosted The Love Weekend on C4. She has been a regular presenter and guest on This Morning, and countless other shows from GMTV to The Wright Stuff, many of which she cannot remember. Others she would rather forget.
Most recently she has appeared on Grumpy Old Woman and Grumpy Old Travellers, Trust Me Iím A Holiday Rep (which she was lucky enough to win) and countless documentaries.
She has presented, and contributed regularly to, shows on Radio 2, 4 and 5, GLR and Talk Radio. She lives in the hopes of being invited once again to open a Haagen Dazs ice cream parlour. The contract stated, "Must be photographed sampling the product." She complied.
