Robert Jeffrey Stelling was born on March 18, 1955 (age 67 years) in Hartlepool, United Kingdom. He was brought up in a council house in Hartlepool. He attended Rift House Primary School and West Hartlepool Grammar School. After leaving school his first job was as a journalist at the Hartlepool Mail where he remained for four years.


Jeff Stelling’s first broadcasting position was as a reporter on Middlesbrough F.C. on Radio Tees in the late 1970s. He was a sports presenter on London’s LBC Radio Sportswatch programme in the early 1980s before moving to BBC Radio 2’s weekend sports programme Sport on 2, covering the Los Angeles and Seoul Olympic games.

In May 2013, Stelling joined twentyfour7 Football Magazine and wrote columns for the magazine’s Dream Team. He has also been featured in the in-game presentation work for EA Sports’ FIFA 14 and FIFA 15. However, in 1994, Jeff Stelling became the presenter of Sports Saturday, which became Gillette Soccer Saturday in 1998, hosting a programme lasting up to six hours of football discussion and live reports on the afternoon’s games with a panel of pundits including Frank McLintock, Chris Kamara, Rodney Marsh and George Best. Much of the programme’s popularity is put down to Stelling, with The Guardian praising him for “exceptional professionalism and élan”.

Jeff Stelling announced in October 2021 that he would be leaving the show at the end of the football season. However, at the start of the 2005–06 Premiership football season, Stelling replaced Ian Payne as the host of Sky Sports’ Ford Monday Night Football programme. However, Stelling’s appointment coincided with a new, shorter format of the programme, with Stelling presenting the show live from the ground of that evening’s game. Previously, the show had been presented from a studio and had featured some coverage of the prior weekend’s games.

In previous years on Monday nights without a live game, a Monday Night Football Special would be broadcast, which included only the analysis from the weekend’s games. This appears to have been dropped from the 2005–06 season, indicating that Stelling’s appointment is to a smaller role than that held by his predecessors. In 2011, Stelling replaced the departed Richard Keys as the main presenter of Sky’s live Champions League coverage and hosted between 2011 and 2015.

He had reportedly also been approached for the role following the death of long-time host Richard Whiteley, but the role was given to former fellow sports presenter Des Lynam instead. Stelling began recording Countdown in December 2008, with the show’s new assistant Rachel Riley, and started broadcasting in January 2009. However, it was announced on 25 May 2011 that Stelling would be stepping down as presenter of Countdown at the end of the year, after three years at the helm, to concentrate on football, including his new Champions League role. He was replaced by Nick Hewer.

Jeff Stelling presented a new 10-part daytime game show for ITV called Alphabetical in August 2016. The show returned for a second series of 20 episodes in October 2017. Stelling appears as himself in a number of episodes of the football comedy TV series Ted Lasso. He has also appeared as himself in The IT Crowd, Dream Team and Mike Bassett: Manager.
