Mary Ann Parkinson, Lady Parkinson (née Heneghan; born 16 July 1936[1]) is a British journalist and television presenter, and the wife of chat show host Sir Michael Parkinson.

Born in Doncaster, West Riding of Yorkshire,[citation needed] Lady Parkinson's career has been on a lower profile than her more famous husband, though she presented the 1970s magazine programme Good Afternoon, produced by Thames Television. Amongst other TV work, she has also frequently appeared as a panelist on Through the Keyhole.
