I just travelled to London... This is what I came back with, it's my special
gift to the "BBC Breakfast" presenters. From left to right: Bill Turnbull,
Sian Williams, Susanna Reid and Charlie Stayt (short biographies at the
bottom of this post).

Even more facts:

Bill Turnbull: Bill first joined Breakfast in 1989 as a reporter, covering many major stories including the Lockerbie disaster. He then became a news correspondent, covering everything from presidential elections to street riots. This was followed by a four year stint as Washington correspondent, before transferring to the studio becoming a regular presenter on BBC Radio 5 Live and the BBC News channel, on which he appeared alongside Valerie Sanderson. (Bill currently co-presents BBC Breakfast each Monday-Thursday with Sian Williams.)

Sian Williams: Before transferring to in front of the camera, Sian was a producer, spending more than a decade in radio, working on programmes such as BBC Radio Four's The World at One. Sian then went to work as an editor on the BBC News channel but eventually ended up swapping that job for one of the channel's top presenting jobs, alongside Gavin Esler in the 4-7pm slot. Sian joined Breakfast in 2001, presenting alongside Bill and anchored the programme from Thailand after the Asian Tsunami. She did a stint as the main presenter of the BBC Six O'Clock News in 2004 whilst Sophie Raworth was on maternity leave, before becoming the main presenter of Breakfast alongside Dermot Murnaghagn in 2006. (Sian currently co-presents BBC Breakfast each Monday-Thursday with Bill Turnbull.)

Susanna Reid: Susanna presents Breakfast each Friday-Sunday alongside Charlie Stayt. She also occasionally fills in for Sian Williams. Before becoming Breakfast's regular weekend presenter in 2006 Susanna had been a presenter on BBC News since 2003. Before this, she had been a reporter for the channel. In the course of her BBC career, Susanna has interviewed the Prime Minister, trained with Olympic athletes and been attacked by wolf cubs. Susanna started out at BBC Radio Bristol before becoming a reporter on BBC Radio 5 Live. She then spent three months doing charity work and visiting the frontline in Sri Lanka, before covering political issues for Breakfast News.

Charlie Stayt: Charlie currently co-presents BBC Breakfast each Friday-Sunday alongside Susanna Reid. He also frequently stands in for Bill Turnbull. Before joining BBC Breakfast, Charlie was a main presenter at Five News and presented the News At Noon bulletin. Charlie joined ITN in 1995 as a reporter for Five News. In 2001, he took up the role of presenting some of the Five News evening bulletins and updates as well as some weekend bulletins. He also presented many of Five's current affairs programmes. When Sky took over production of Five News in January 2005 Charlie was moved to Five News At Noon. Just over a month later, Charlie announced he was leaving Five News. He went on to present a number of documentaries and investigations for the channel. He later appeared on Sky News before joining BBC News in 2006, initially as a relief presenter for both Breakfast and the BBC News channel. He became the main weekend presenter in January 2008.
