ITV News anchor Tom Bradby says he became a 'poster boy for having a breakdown'

ITV anchor Tom Bradby said he became ‘a bit of a poster boy for having a breakdown’ after his public battle with mental challenges.

The journalist and newsreader, 55, was signed off work for three months in 2018 after developing insomnia and what he describes as an addiction to the sleeping pill zopiclone.

Bradby, who has worked for ITV producer ITN for 30 years, told how his wife Claudia had warned him he was close to a ‘very dangerous cliff-edge’ and urged him to see a psychiatrist. 

Speaking to former Downing Street director of communications Craig Oliver, for his podcast Desperately Seeking Wisdom, Bradby said: 'One of the really nice things about [being open] is people feel able to come and talk to me about when they're not feeling well'
