Election (head judge)

It's Your Word


Part of a dynasty of television journalists which included his father Richard and older brother David. Jonathan's TV debut was in a forerunner of Holiday called Passport, on which his father travelled to holiday destinations with the family in tow. Nowadays he's a heavyweight political journalist: he hosted Radio 4's 'Any Questions' for many years (while David now presents the TV equivalent, 'Question Time') and three election night programmes for ITV (while David continues to present the rival programme on the BBC).


In addition to his relatives who work in the same field as him, Dimbleby's sister-in-law, Josceline (David's wife) has written a number of cookery books, while his other brother, Nicholas, sculpted the plaque that stands in Poets' Corner as a memorial to their father, Richard.
