Darren Stanton left behind a career as a frontline police officer to become a renowned expert in his field; the media simply call him the Human Lie Detector.
With over 20 years’ experience, Darren is one of the world’s leading experts in detecting deception, influence, persuasion and motivation. Along with an array of other psychological skills, it really is no wonder why he is so sought after by global clients.
Darren has assessed some of the world’s biggest names including David Cameron, Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Johnny Depp, Katy Perry, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift.
Darren is a regular on ITV’s This Morning, BBC’s The One Show and programmes with Judge Rinder including Judge Rinder’s Crime Stories (2017) and Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets (2022).

He has also joined former Communications Director Alastair Campbell for Make Me Prime Minister (2022), in which 10 contestants face a number of tasks to see who could ultimately become Prime Minster.
