Robert Rinder is a professional criminal barrister and since 2014 has been the eponymous star of the courtroom reality series Judge Rinder.

He gained a First Class Honours degree at the University of Manchester in Politics & Modern History. He went onto specialise in international fraud, money laundering and other forms of financial crime.

As well as his ITV1 British reality court show Judge Rinder, which sees real life cases adjudicated over in a studio courtroom, he also presents Judge Rinder’s Crime Stories. The show is now in its third series and lifts the lid on some of Britain’s worst ever crimes. In 2017, Robert also re-launched Crown Court on ITV1, newly named Judge Rinder’s Crown Court after a 30-year hiatus.

Off the screen, in 2015 and 2016 Robert hosted his own BBC Radio 5 Live series Raising the Bar which he started with a discussion with the former Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge.

Robert went on a life-changing experience when he took part in BBC One’s Who Do You Think You Are? Robert’s emotional journey saw him follow the story of his grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, as well as investigating the dark mystery surrounding his great-grandfather. The episode was watched by 8 million people and was the highest-rated episode of the whole series.

He will be joined on the stage by Anchor Tania Bryer, host of some of CNBC’s most watched and celebrated programmes, including her critically-acclaimed series CNBC Meets… where she gets up close and personal with some of the world’s most inspirational figures to find out the secret to their success and how their philanthropy changes lives.

Amongst many others for the series, she has interviewed Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Sir Richard Branson, Melinda Gates, Boris Johnson, Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Jon Bon Jovi, Matt Damon and Cherie Blair CBE QC.

A highly skilled presenter and moderator, Tania hosts a wide variety of international events and Forums including the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Awards, the Women of the Future Awards and The Women’s Forum in Deauville. She is an official participant and moderator at The World Economic Forum in Davos and chairs numerous panels for charities and organisations including Invest Africa and Intelligence Squared.

She is Chair of the National Events Committee for Cancer Research UK and a Patron of the Alzheimer’s Society. Tania holds a B.Sc. in International Politics from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.
