Judy Finnigan spent years reporting and presenting regional TV news and features before she launched ITV daytime programme This Morning with husband Richard Madeley. The couple hosted the daily show for 13 award-winning years before moving to Channel 4 and their equally successful nightly teatime show Richard and Judy, which ran for seven ground-breaking years.
Since then, Finnigan has concentrated on writing two Sunday Times top 10 bestsellers, Eloise, and I Do Not Sleep, both set in her beloved Cornwall.
She also fronts the couple’s eponymous book club; the club is one of the most important drivers of book sales in the UK.
Finnigan and Madeley live in London and Cornwall and have four grown-up children. She is currently working on her third novel.
