Kirsty Gallacher has revealed the "exciting new project" she quit Soccer Aid for: a job on GB News' breakfast show.
The former Sky Sports presenter is the newest signing to the broadcaster's forthcoming launch and said she was enjoying mucking in with the small team.
She told MailOnline: "Journalism is my first love and I’m thrilled to be getting back into the heart of it at GB News.
"We’re really challenging the status quo with a fresh approach to news and debate and at this point in my career it just feels like absolutely the right thing – and the best thing – to be doing.
"It’s a small team but it already feels like a family. Everyone’s piling in and doing a dozen jobs each. It’s incredible to be joining at the beginning and building something from scratch."
Gallacher, who spent 10 years hosting celebrity football fundraiser Soccer Aid alongside Dermot O'Leary, recently stepped down from her role saying that although she had loved it, she wouldn't be able to take on the 2021 campaign.
At the time, she said: "I can confirm I'm stepping down – it feels like the right time after 10 years and following a record breaking year in 2020 and excitingly I've got a new project that will prevent me from taking part."
GB News is run by former BBC current affairs presenter Andrew Neil and has also signed Simon McCoy, Colin Brazier and Dan Wootton to its team.
It is rumoured to be a likely home for Piers Morgan, who recently left Good Morning Britain after a row about his criticism of Meghan Markle, although nothing has been confirmed.
Gallacher, 45, will bring 20 years of experience at Sky Sports and Sky Sports News the breakfast team, as well as having been an anchor on news shows including Channel 4's morning show RI:SE.
