Tom "Wookie" Ford is a motoring journalist and television presenter sometimes referred to by the nickname Wookie. He is married with 3 children.

Ford was the co-host of Five's Fifth Gear beginning in Spring 2007.[1] However, in Series 17 of Fifth Gear which started in June 2010, Ford did not return to the show, as Five decided to only bring back Tiff Needell, Vicki Butler-Henderson, Jason Plato and Jonny Smith as presenters.

Ford's writing includes a stint at CAR Magazine where he rose from Staff Writer to Road Test Editor. Ford currently writes for Top Gear Magazine as a Contributing Editor for the publication having previously held the position Deputy Editor for the publication. He also is seen regularly writing for the Sunday Times motoring section. In March 2014, he began filming Mud, Sweat & Gears.

While studying for his philosophy degree at Essex University Ford joined a performance art group called Kiss My Axe[1] before a brief time with a circus. He later returned to education and obtained another degree in journalism.[1]
