BBC Breakfast at 30: Who’s your favourite ever presenter?

From Frank Bough, Selina Scott and Nick Ross to Jeremy Paxman and David Icke - the show has had many hosts over the years - now it's time to vote for your number one...


BBC Breakfast, the Corporation’s early-morning mix of news, views and showbiz gossip, is going to be thirty years old tomorrow.


The programme began as Breakfast Time in 1983, changing its name to Breakfast News in 1989, before becoming the BBC Breakfast we know and love today in 2000.  

While the format’s remained largely unchanged, Breakfast has featured no end of different presenters over the years. Frank Bough, Selina Scott and Nick Ross were our hosts for the show’s very first edition, and since then we’ve seen everyone from Jeremy Paxman to David Icke take up temporary residence on the programme’s comfy-looking sofas.

So, to mark the show’s impending thirtieth, we’re asking you to tell us who you rate as the best Breakfast host of all time. Whether your morning wouldn’t be complete without a few gags from Bill Turnbull, or you yearn for the return of Sue Cook, we want to know about it.


So cast a vote in our poll below and help crown Britain’s favourite ever Breakfast host
