Eamonn Holmes is to present a new show on GB News from the new year, it has been announced.

Veteran broadcaster Eamonn Holmes is to join GB News in the new year, it has been announced.

The 62-year-old is quitting his role as a relief presenter on This Morning alongside wife Ruth Langsford in order to present a new programme on the fledgling news channel, which launched over the summer.

Holmes arrives at the station with a wealth of experience, having anchored GMTV for 12 years and Sky News breakfast show Sunrise for 11 years.

"I've spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups, and GB News is one of the most exciting yet," he said. "It's just the kind of shake-up the industry needs.

"I've admired GB News from the beginning for its clever mix of punchy debate but delivered with warmth and even some fun.

"To me the greatest honour in journalism is to give a voice and respect to the unheard, and that's exactly what GB News is all about."

Holmes's arrival at GB News follows that of Sky News stalwart Stephen Dixon, who will present his first programmes for the channel this weekend.
