Find out more about our Special Correspondent John Stapleton...
I am a seasoned broadcaster with over 40 years' experience in newspapers and television. Presenting GMTV for 12 years, I was made the Royal Television Society News Presenter of the Year in 2004 for my work on GMTV’s News Hour.
Prior to GMTV, my wife and I presented the highly popular Watchdog programme for the BBC for eight years during which time I also anchored ITV’s daily discussion programme The Time The Place.
I began my career in local and national newspapers and from 1975 until 1980, worked as a reporter and presenter on BBC’s Nationwide programme and later became a foreign correspondent for both Panorama and Newsnight.
I have interviewed every Prime Minister since James Callaghan and am the only presenter to have worked for all three major ITV breakfast shows: TV-am, GMTV and now Daybreak!
