Imogen Anne Lloyd Webber is a British political commentator and author. She is the daughter of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and his first wife, Sarah Hugill. Her mother remarried in 1985 in Kensington and Chelsea, London.[1]

Lloyd Webber was educated at Queen's College, London and Girton College, Cambridge, where she studied Modern Political History, specialising in the role of worldwide intelligence agencies and their impact on our times.[2][3] She formed ILW Productions, a theatre production company, to discover new commercial theatre work by up-and-coming playwrights. Its debut show, Touched… For The Very First Time, written by Zoe Lewis, directed by Douglas Rintoul and starring Sadie Frost ran at the Trafalgar Studios in London's West End in 2009.

Her non-fiction book, The Single Girl's Guide, was published by Summersdale in the United Kingdom in April 2007, and as The Single Girl's Survival Guide by Skyhorse Publishing in the US in October 2007 and again in February 2011. Lloyd Webber is currently adapting it into a screenplay for Lloyd Levin and is writing a new book.[2]

The Twitter Diaries: 2 Cities, 1 Friendship, 140 Characters, a fiction e-book that Lloyd Webber co-wrote with Georgie Thompson, debuted on May 21, 2012. It is written as a conversation on Twitter, using the 140-character limitation. The book was inspired by Thompson and Lloyd Webber meeting at a party hosted by Piers Morgan and developing a friendship over Twitter.[4][5]

Lloyd Webber now lives in New York City where she was a contributor for MSNBC. She now regularly appears on the Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network as a political commentator with a global perspective – and "Liberal" slant on topics as wide-ranging from Afghanistan to entertainment.[2][3] She is a frequent guest on the Fox News late-night panel show Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld. UK TV appearances included ITV2's Deadline, GMTV and Sky News. She is most recently a regular weekly guest, and panelist, along with Imus' longtime producer Bernard McGuirk, on the Imus in the Morning radio show, which airs on 77WABC in New York City, and syndicated around the nation. The Imus radio program is also televised each morning on Fox Business Network.
