Carol Thatcher (At Left, with her mother and President Jimmy Carter, 1979)

Biography

English journalist, author and media personality, also known as the daughter of Margaret Thatcher, the British prime minister from 1979 to 1990, and Denis Thatcher. She has written biographies of both her parents and also produced a documentary about her father which contained his only public interview. She won the fifth series of the UK reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! on 5 December 2005.

Thatcher and her twin brother, Mark, were born six weeks prematurely by C-section.

She graduated with a law degree from University College London, before moving to Australia in 1977 to begin a journalism career. While she was there, her mother was elected Prime Minister.

Her first book, Diary of an Election: with Margaret Thatcher on the campaign trail, was published in 1983. Her second book, a collaboration with tennis player Chris Evert (Mrs Lloyd) called Lloyd on Lloyd, was released three years later. It became Thatcher's first best-seller.

Later publications included a 1996 best-selling biography of her father, Below the Parapet. In 2003, Thatcher produced a Channel 4 documentary about him called Married to Maggie.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Thatcher's gold: the life and times of Mark Thatcher by Paul Halloran and Mark Hollingsworth (Simon & Schuster, 1995), p. 15: "Their dream came true on Saturday, 15 August 1953, when Margaret gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl, seven weeks ahead of schedule, at Princess Beatrice Hospital, in Chelsea, west London. ... The boy was born first at 2.50 p.m., weighing four pounds, and two minutes later his sister appeared."
