I have spent the last ten years telling the biggest news stories in the world to a family audience on ITV.
From the disaster zones of Japan and New Orleans, the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan, and the party zone that was our Royal baby coverage, I have brought you what you needed to know, live from the scene.
My ITV decade includes three years in New York as US Correspondent.
I'm best known for: Finding the human stories at the heart of world events: the child bomb-makers of Belfast or the families torn apart by the Greek financial crisis
The proudest moment of my career is: Holding the government to account over a broken election pledge and getting policy changed. The report was credited with saving many Sure Start Children’s centres.
The first thing I do in the morning is: At 3am I call the news desk from bed… in a whisper so I don’t wake the family
My favourite breakfast is: There’s a place near the Royal Courts of Justice that does a cracking baked egg in a pot. Filling and fat free. I always love those legal stories.
The most famous person in my phonebook is: Saddam Hussein. Seriously. It's quite a common name in some parts of the world. He is a contact of mine, a university student in Pakistan.
The actor who would play me in a film about Daybreak would be: Taylor Schilling out of Orange is the new Black. She just keeps on keeping on. You need that in Breakfast TV.
My favourite memory from working on Daybreak is: Kicking down the door and saving a woman from a burning building during the London riots as the camera rolled. Mum was so proud.
If I wasn’t presenting for Daybreak I would be: Learning Arabic
You’d be surprised to learn that: I used to work for a super-club in Ibiza
