Correspondents and Reporters

About Jonathan Swain

Jonathan Swain

Jonathan has had a front row seat at some of the world's biggest stories.

During the Iraq conflict in 2003 he travelled across the desert with little more than a satellite phone and a box of 48 Snickers bars that he picked up at a Jordanian roadside stall. He went on to report from Baghdad during the period that Saddam Hussein was toppled from power.

Being a breakfast television correspondent thought isn't always about covering major events, there are many lighter moments. Jonathan has done a bungee jump live on air, skied in the Alps and even convinced Parisian's to taste test British beef on the Champs Elysees.

Before joining Good Morning Britain Jonathan was a correspondent for Daybreak and GMTV.

About Katy Rickitt

Katy Rickitt

Katy Rickitt is a news correspondent for Good Morning Britain and has worked for ITV since 2008.

Throughout her career Katy has strived to humanise the headlines, with an insight into the real people and stories behind them. From the sense of betrayal that plagued the community of Dewsbury even after Karen Matthews was released from prison, to the hope that turned to anguish during the hunt for April Jones. Katy also spent much of the last two years covering the unprecedented floods which spread across the country.

Katy's investigations have also taken her abroad: to Romania where she delved into the real lives of the romany community; to Malia where she investigated the safety of British teenagers abroad; and to Cyprus, where she experienced first hand the collapse of the banking system.
