UK Customs serve bankruptcy proceedings on BBC Breakfast host

Charlie Stayt news

BBC Breakfast presenter Charlie Stayt, 61, and his wife, actress Annie Breckell, are facing bankruptcy after being served a petition by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The couple, who reside in a £2.3 million home in Twickenham, South West London, were £6,409 in debt when they filed their company’s accounts in December. Stayt Limited, their company involved in television programming and broadcasting, lists both Charlie and Annie as directors, according to the Daily Mail UK. Despite their financial difficulties, the couple’s home has significantly increased in value since they purchased it for £800,000 in 2002.

Charlie Stayt has been a mainstay on BBC Breakfast since 2006, taking over as the main weekday host following Dan Walker’s departure in April 2022. The couple, together for over 20 years with two grown children, have remained in Twickenham while many of Stayt’s co-stars relocated closer to the show’s broadcasting base in Salford, Manchester. The news of their financial troubles follows recent criticism of Stayt’s interviewing style, particularly during an interview with the shadow chancellor of the exchequer, Rachel Reeves, which drew backlash on social media for being ‘interruptive and patronising.’
