Helen Chamberlain leaves Sky Sports Soccer AM after 22 years

Sky Sports today announced Helen Chamberlain is leaving her role as presenter of Soccer AM.

The Torquay United fan, who has fronted the show for 22 years, will be replaced by comedian Lloyd Griffith and former footballer Jimmy Bullard.

The news was announced via Soccer AM’s Twitter account: “Farewell & thank you to Mrs Soccer AM @HellsBellsy.
