Moore was born in Oxford, Oxfordshire. Her father was a professor of mathematics at the University of Oxford, and her mother was a teacher. She went to primary school in Oxford, then went to the Worcester Grammar School for Girls on Spetchley Road in Worcester, when her parents divorced. Since the divorce, she has not heard from her father. At school, she always wanted to be a journalist, but was told by her teachers that 'it was no job for a lady'. She studied journalism at the South Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education in Cardiff, then trained at the Solihull News in 1981, moving to work full-time at the Birmingham Mail and Birmingham Post.
Moore is a columnist for The Sun and writes regular articles for the Sunday Times. She has also been writing for Hello magazine. She was nominated for a British Press Award in 2006 in the category of 'Columnist of the Year', but lost out to Lucy Kellaway.
She guest presented This Morning on 19 April 2002.
She presented the six-part BBC Two series Wonderstuff, which began airing on 25 July 2011.
