Jayne Cherrington-Cook

Jayne cut her online teeth in an era when a dialling tone and slow page load were standard. With over 22 years’ experience in journalism, she’s written about a variety of subjects and is just as at home interviewing A-list stars as she is testing nappies. Having started her career writing about Pokémon, ponies and wrestling, Jayne moved into the world of film journalism, where she spent the next eight years pinching herself while she got paid to interview Hollywood film stars and attend premieres. Since then, she’s launched websites for major magazines, worked with top brands such as Westfield, LK Bennett and Hunter, had her own tech column in Women’s Own and has more recently lent her wordy expertise to small businesses, including Andrea McLean’s This Girl Is On Fire membership site. Outside of work, she lives in Kent with her husband, dog and son Milo, who is determined to teach her the ways of TikTok, Minecraft and anime, despite her many protestations. She’s also a keen autism ally, after her son was diagnosed four years ago.
