Born in Notttingham, Harris spent his childhood in a small rented house on a Nottingham council estate.

Harris read English literature at Selwyn College, Cambridge where he was president of the Union and editor of the student newspaper Varsity.

After leaving Cambridge, Harris joined the BBC and worked on news and current affairs programmes such as Panorama and Newsnight. In 1987, at the age of thirty, he became political editor of The Observer. He later wrote regular columns for The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph.
