Hannah Bechelet - Good Morning Britain Presenter and reporter
I’ve wanted to be a reporter since I was in my early teens, so I followed my History and Politics degree with a MA in Broadcast Journalism at the University of Sheffield.
I was lucky enough to get work with my local BBC radio station in Hertfordshire (where I grew up) as soon as I graduated, before spotting a job in Jersey a few months later. That’s how I found myself moving to the Channel Islands for what I thought would be a couple of years – and that was nearly five years ago!
I started off working as a Newsreader for both Jersey and Guernsey’s commercial radio stations, Channel 103 and Island FM (where I got used to getting up early!) and then made the breakthrough I’d been hoping for into TV.
In the two and a half years I’ve been at ITV Channel I’ve been a producer, a reporter and more recently a presenter. I’m now really excited to be moving to ITV News Central to use all of these skills as your GMB Presenter.
In my spare time I like baking, travelling and going to the gym, and I’m looking forward to living back on English soil so I can explore all that the Midlands has to offer.
So as well as any story ideas, please contact me on Twitter to give me any tips of places I ‘must-see’ on weekend trips!
Bob Warman - Presenter
I’ve been on your screens almost 43 years – according to ‘Steve Wright in the Afternoon’ the longest serving anchorman on the same programme in the world!
Born in Walsall, and educated at Wrekin College, Wellington, I worked on several newspapers and in radio before joining ATV in 1973.
I am President of the Birmingham Press Club, the world’s oldest Press Club, and an honorary Vice-President of the Journalists’ Charity. Also President of the Acorns Business Club which supports the Acorns Hospices, and Regional Chairman of Coutts & Co, private bank.
Sameena Ali-Khan - Presenter
I was hoping to qualify as a doctor but instead I got a science degree, an MA in TV and more importantly some life experience.
I began presenting in commercial radio then moved to BBC Asian Network, BBC GMR, WM and London and 5 Live.
Then came the screen test. Since then I’ve worked as a reporter/presenter for BBC North West Today, Inside Out, Midlands Today and now ITV News Central.
I host many high profile events/award ceremonies and away from TV, I love my family, swimming, cooking, and shopping!
Matt Teale - Presenter
I was born in Worcestershire, raised in Herefordshire, educated in Nottingham and I've also lived in Peterborough and Birmingham making the Midlands well and truly home.
I used to front sport on ITV News Central before joining ITN in 2007 as a presenter on Setanta Sports then as the main anchor of London Tonight.
I continue to front network news for ITV and I return to ITV News Central after spells with Sky News and the British Forces Broadcasting Service.
So far my career has taken me from Washington to Kabul and from Jamaica to Johannesburg.
While away from work, I'm a cricket-obsessed father of three and organiser of the Shobdon Food Festival, a charity event in north Herefordshire.
Des Coleman - Weather Presenter
Looking back in order to write this makes me smile. It’s been a while since I left Drama school in Guildford with my sights set on becoming an actor.
Twenty or so years later here I am in the fab position as ITV Central’s weather presenter.
I’ve enjoyed a wonderfully varied career, spending four years on Eastenders, winning a couple of awards, and making films like Harry on the Boat and Submerged.
I made my West End debut at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane with Miss Saigon, becoming what’s called a ‘West End Wendy’ - it’s a cute term for actors appearing in a number of London productions. I played the lead in shows like Chicago, Porgy and Bess and Rent.
I then worked for the BBC as a presenter on The One Show, The Politics Show and the weather, and I still tour with the Rat Pack playing Sammy Davis Jr and host events across the country. You can watch a clip here!
Here at ITV we’ve got the best weather team in the business - and it's fun!
You can get to know me onFacebook.
Steve Clamp - Sports Correspondent
I had a rather unusual introduction to television. While at college studying TV Production and Journalism I was working part time as a fishmonger. One day, an actor who I had spoken to a few times told me his agent was looking for a new children's TV presenter - and would I like to meet her?!
Well obviously I did, a screen test followed... And I got the show! I continued working as a jobbing presenter in both children's shows and entertainment formats until an opportunity arose with Chelsea FC, at their new TV station. I began working there as a reporter and presenter, before a summer transfer took me to Manchester United and their TV Channel!
After a couple more years I was offered the chance to present on Sky Sports News, and became their youngest male anchor (I'm not the youngest at anything anymore...)
Another couple of years passed before I joined the BBC in Birmingham, before joining ITV News Central in 2005, initially as a news presenter, and then taking on the role of Sports Correspondent in 2009.
Along the way I've also cropped up on Setanta (with Matt Teale no less!) and have anchored the National ITV News.
I love my role in sport, it offers so many highs and lows - I must admit to often being swept up in the emotion of it all. I just wish all our teams could be as successful as Leicester City!
Away from news and sport my greatest joys come from being a father to two wonderful children, a girl and a boy, and whatever time I have left is spent listening to music - I have a huge vinyl collection which is still growing! I also play a bit of guitar - although not very well...
Balvinder Sidhu - Good Morning Britain Presenter and reporter
I was raised in Smethwick in the West Midlands into a family of five girls before moving to Nottingham to study a degree in Psychology.
During my time as a university student, I discovered my passion for telling stories and contributed to the student magazine and radio station.
I studied a Post-Graduate Broadcast Journalism diploma at Birmingham City University, which led to opportunities to work at BBC Radio Leicester and BBC WM before winning a competitive traineeship with ITV news.
My journey with ITV has taken me to Bristol where I worked as a producer, presenter and reporter for four years before moving back home to the Midlands.
I currently present the early morning news bulletins for ITV News Central which airs during ITV's breakfast programme Good Morning Britain.
I live in Warwickshire with my husband and little boy. Outside of work, I love dancing to the tunes of Zumba and at the weekends, I bring people together to prepare food for the homeless.
Balvinder is currently on maternity leave.
