Which of these men is the UK's favourite breakfast TV presenter?

From BBC - November 13, 2017

If the results of a new poll are to be believed, the UK's TV watchers prefer waking up with a man than with a woman.

In a Radio Times list of the 20 best UK breakfast television presenters "of all time", the top five have one thing in common - they are all blokes.

TV veteran Eamonn Holmes comes out on top, ahead of Johnny Vaughan, Piers Morgan, Dan Walker and Bill Turnbull.

Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid is the highest ranked female presenter, coming in at number six.

Holmes, the highest ranked male, received more than seven times more votes than Reid.

And Reid, who has been a breakfast television presenter since 2004, received 582 fewer votes than Morgan, her contentious co-host on the ITV flagship show.

Chris Evans, the BBC's highest-paid broadcaster, is ranked ninth for his work on Channel 4's The Big Breakfast in the early 1990s.

Despite no female presenters appearing in the top five slots, they fare better numerically in the poll overall occupying 12 of the 20 places on offer.
