Simon Vigar is the Royal Correspondent for Channel 5 News, the highlight being an exclusive interview with Prince Harry. Simon has covered many tours since 2007, including Harry’s visit to Jamaica when the Prince won a ‘race’ with Usain Bolt and Prince George’s memorable first trip Down Under.

 

Simon also led coverage on the Paris and Brussels attacks for 5 News, the shock retirement of the Pope and several major trials including Stephen Lawrence, Baby P and Joanna Yeates. He began his career in commercial radio and has been the 'news guy' for several breakfast shows, including Capital, Heart & LBC.

 

2017 is his third year as a mentor and he says he and his mentees agree the most beneficial part is acting as an impartial, confidential sounding board. Quick phone chats at the end of a good or bad day are often better (and more realistic) than lots of meetings.
