Hi, I'm Ricky. I'm a journalist and presenter having worked at the BBC, Sky and Channel 5 for over a decade. When I'm not on air I'm head down in the kitchen, trying a recipe or two or I'm throwing around my 1-year-old son.
I'm a husband and brand new daddy. Right now I can be seen presenting CBBC's Newsround. Along the way I've reported for BBC Watchdog and Breakfast.
I enjoy spending time with my son, discovering the latest trends, playing the piano and keeping up to date with social media.
The presenters open up to the charity dedicated to premature and sick babies
