Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson has joined GB News as a presenter, programme-maker and political commentator.

The controversial politician will develop a series of programmes on the subject of global Britain, while he will also present the occasional live special with an audience at venues around the country.

Johnson will also be a key part of the channel's coverage of next year's US elections and the next UK general election.

"GB News is an insurgent channel with a loyal and growing following," he said in a video announcing his arrival. "I am excited to say I will be joining shortly - and offering my frank opinions on world affairs.

"I will be talking about the immense opportunities for Global Britain - as well as the challenges - and why our best days are yet to come.

"I'm going to be giving this remarkable new TV channel my unvarnished views on everything from Russia, China, the war in Ukraine, and how we meet all of those challenges, to the huge opportunities that lie ahead for us."

GB News' editorial director Michael Booker added: "I'm delighted to say, GB News has got Boris 'done'!

"We are tremendously proud to have him join the GB News family, particularly as we head into a seismic year of politics both here and across the Atlantic.

"Boris has been the most influential Prime Minister of our generation, and his unique insight into domestic and world affairs will be a smash hit with our viewers and listeners.

"As well as his political skills, he's an incredibly talented journalist and author, so we can't wait to start working with him on what will be must-see TV."

Johnson will begin his new role in January 2024.
