Gugu, short for Gugulethu which is Zulu for "Our Pride", was born in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, England. Her mother, Anne Raw, is a Caucasian English nurse, and her father, Patrick Mbatha, is a Black South African doctor. Her parents separated when she was a year old, and she was brought up by her mother in the town of Witney, Oxfordshire (she is still close to her father).

A talented singer and dancer as well as playing the saxophone, she joined the Oxford Youth Music Theatre in her teens.

Since graduation in 2004 she has appeared in all media, including as an acclaimed Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet" at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre and on television in such varied series as Bad Girls (1999), Doctor Who (2005) and "Marple".
