I’ve been on your screens almost 40 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.

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!

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 two and organiser of the Shobdon Food Festival, a charity event in north Herefordshire.

Balvinder Sidhu - Good Morning Britain Presenter

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.

Lucy Kite is the weather presenter for ITV News Central

Lucy Kite - Weather presenter

I started my career at ITV News Central 13 years ago as a Producer on network and regional programmes before joining ITV News Central as a Presenter and Entertainment Correspondent.

From Robbie Williams to Sarah Jessica Parker I've interviewed some of the biggest stars in the world and even trained to dance on ice with Torvill and Dean!

I have presented helicopter series Sky High and won an RTS Awards for Best Entertainment Show with Rock Legends.

Before moving to the weather desk, I presented the late news for three years and still step in as the main anchor of ITV News Central. I love being out and about and present our monthly strand Country Calendar.

When I'm not presenting, my other big passion is yoga. I'm a qualified teacher and practice daily which keeps me nice and relaxed!
