Esther McVey age –
Esther McVey is 56 years old as of 2023. She was born on October 24, 1967 and almost immediately put into a Barnardo’s foster home by her young parents who didn’t have the money to look after her.
She stayed in the charity’s care for the first two years of her life, before returning to her parents.
Speaking to the Political Thinking with Nick Robinson podcast, she said she didn’t feel any resentment towards her family for their decision.
“That, to me, is love at its utmost – knowing you can’t look after someone as much as you’d like to so you dare to give up your little child.”
She was educated at a private girls’ school where she became head girl. Faced with a choice being ballet and law school, she picked the latter.
However, while waitressing in a showbiz restaurant in London she decided she wanted to be a TV presenter instead.
In the course of her media career she worked on a range of programmes, including a documentary about naturists on Channel 5, the religious Heaven and Earth Show on BBC One and ITV’s breakfast show GMTV.
In the early 2000s she began pursuing a career in politics and in 2010 won the Merseyside seat of Wirral West for the Conservatives.
