Kirsty Gallacher is making a return to Sky Sports News.

She will be presenting a revamped Good Morning Sports Fans from the summer, but will host the 15:00-19:00 show alongside Simon Thomas today.

Speaking of her return, Kirsty said: “I’m delighted to be joining Sky Sports News HD.

“As a viewer I’ve watched how the channel has grown over the last few years and the scale of what it does now is breathtaking.

“Sport has always been my passion and I’ve remained in contact with many people at Sky. I can’t wait to start.”

Kirsty, the daugher of golfer Bernard Gallacher, has presented Soccer AM, Kirsty’s Home Videos, Gladiators and the Channel 4 morning programme, RI:SE.

Andy Cairns, Editor for Sky Sports News, said: “We’re thrilled that Kirsty is joining – especially at such an exciting time for Sky Sports News HD.

“Our viewers have always loved Kirsty and her natural, conversational style which is perfect for the new look Good Morning Sports Fans show we’re launching later this summer.”
