We are incredibly excited to welcome Andrea McLean as our guest chef with her utterly delicious recipe for our FiveDinners members – Andrea’s Sneaky Vegetable Spag Bol Recipe!
Andrea was born in Scotland and grew up in Trinidad in the Caribbean. After moving to England, she finished her education, backpacked around the world then moved to London with everything she owned on the back seat of her car, sleeping on floors to pursue her dream of becoming a writer…
Her persistence paid off; she is now the #1 Sunday Times Best-Selling author of: ‘This Girl Is On Fire: How To Live, Learn and Thrive in a Life You Love’, ‘Confessions of a Good Girl’, and ‘Confessions of a Menopausal Woman’.
She is also an award-winning TV broadcaster, journalist, radio presenter and CEO / co-founder of the female personal growth site www.thisgirlisonfire.com
In her 26-year career as a broadcaster Andrea has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, Drew Barrymore, Will Smith, Dustin Hoffman and Amy Schumer. Working alongside stellar guest panellists such as Goldie Hawn and Eva Longoria, Andrea hosted ITV’s ratings and multi award-winning live national Daytime chat show Loose Women for 13 years, bringing her warmth, humour and journalistic skill to the small screen every lunchtime.
In December 2020, after serving as the longest reigning host of Loose Women, Andrea decided to pivot career-wise, leaving behind her role as a national television anchor to pursue her passion for service and devote her time to empowering women through personal growth.
Andrea is now an accredited Life Coach and NLP Coach, and has brought her years of anchoring TV shows, journalism and writing skills together into her business. She does this through her This Girl Is On Fire App (soon to be available on iTunes and Google Play) which puts personal growth into the palm of your hand – providing daily motivation and twice-monthly live coaching sessions with accredited Life Coaches. Her This Girl Is On Fire Membership is a gym for the mind, where Andrea hosts masterclasses with experts, podcast interviews with inspiring women, and live events with her community. For non-members she offers Online Courses and FREE fortnightly Magazine Newsletters.
Andrea also supports women in business through her This Girl Is On Fire Marketplace Membership, helping female entrepreneurs build their online presence and business know-how.
Andrea says: “I believe that every woman has the right to have the emotional and financial freedom to live a life she loves, and it is my mission to empower 100 million women around the world to do so.”
