Ms Bruce has often spoken about the difficulties of juggling her career and family life.

The mother-of-two has in fact faced serious backlash over her parenting in the past.

She received criticism for going back to work for Crimewatch just 16 days after giving birth to Mia.

In an interview she defended herself against those who criticised her and explained that while her children were young and she would watch the clock.

She told the Telegraph: “There was always a point at which I thought, ‘If I leave now, I can make bathtime’, and I’d get really irritable and try to rattle through stuff.”

Tonight’s Question Time will be broadcast from Epsom.

Guests will include Labour MP for Brent North Barry Gardiner, Brexit Party MEP Alex Philips, Canadian-American cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker, Liberal Democrats deputy leader Jo Swinson and Conservative Party leader candidate Rory Stewart.

But how did Fiona Bruce become a journalist?

Fiona Bruce was born on April 25, 1964 in Singapore, and has two older brothers.

Her mother is English and her father, who went onto to become regional managing director at Unilever, is Scottish.

Ms Bruce attended the Gayton Primary School in the Wirral, as well as the International School of Milan and then the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College in New Cross, London.
