Richard Madeley is a journalist, novelist and broadcaster. He began his career in the newsrooms of local papers before launching the hugely successful daytime show This Morning with his wife Judy Finnigan.
After 13 years the couple began their equally successful Channel 4 nightly topical teatime show Richard and Judy, which ran for seven years and was regularly among the network’s most-watched programmes.
Madeley has written numerous bestselling books including the memoir Fathers and Sons, the thrillers Some Day I’ll Find You, The Way You Look Tonight, and most recently, The Night Book.
The hugely influential Richard and Judy Book Club in association with WHSmith is one of the biggest drivers of book sales on the UK high street.
He and Finnigan live in Hampstead and south east Cornwall. They have four grown-up children.
