Polly Vernon has been a features writer, interviewer and columnist for 18 years. She now writes primarily for The Times and Grazia. She started as a junior writer on Minx, a lecherous, riotous young woman's magazine, which launched in the late '90s as a female response to Loaded. She was picked up as the Guardian's youngest ever Comments and Analysis columnist, as a result of her work on the magazine. Since then, she's written for everything from Vogue to The Telegraph, Grazia to a long residency at the Observer as ‘The Cocktail Girl’. She's interviewed everyone from David Cameron to Hugh Jackman via Donald Trump. And Take That. And One Direction. And Piers Morgan, for whom she has an enduring fondness. But don't tell anyone.
