Gordon is the daughter of Sunday Mirror gossip columnist Jane Gordon. She has two siblings, Rufus and Naomi. She was educated at a Kew College primary school and later attended the independent Queen’s Gate School (an all girls school) in South Kensington. She went on to study History of Art at University College London before dropping out after one term.
Gordon began her career interning for the Daily Express, writing occasional feature articles for the newspaper. She then began writing a youth-oriented column for the Sunday Express, before writing for The Daily Telegraph’s teen supplement in 2000. In 2001, Gordon joined the Daily Mirror gossip column known as The 3AM Girls. After the Mirror, Gordon resumed writing for The Daily Telegraph.
Since 2006, Gordon has written the “Notebook” column, appearing in The Daily Telegraph every Thursday, as well as additional special features, such as interviews with notable figures. She also writes the How the Other Half Lives column for the Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine. In 2007, Gordon was shortlisted for Young Journalist of the Year, at the British Press Awards. Gordon also writes for the Telegraph blogs section.
In June 2014, Gordon published her first book, The Wrong Knickers: A Decade of Chaos, a memoir of “hedonistic antics” during her single life, and a “lost decade” of drink, drugs and promiscuity.
Gordon married Harry Wilson, a financial journalist, on 5 July 2013. They have a daughter, Edie, and live in Clapham in London.
