Ayesha is a renowned columnist and broadcaster who hosts the weekend drivetime show on Times Radio and edits The Londoner, the Evening Standard’s Daily Diary section.

Having started her career as a stand-up comedian, she then took the natural diversion into politics as a special adviser to Labour Party leaders Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.

A regular political pundit in print and on TV and radio news programmes, Ayesha also appears on comedy shows such as Have I Got News For You (BBC), The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and Matt Forde’s Unspun (Dave).

She continues to perform stand-up and has brought highly successful shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and elsewhere in recent years.
