Has the daily schedule changed for the summer now? Kay tweeted she’s on at 12noon? I recall last year they split the shifts?

I assume it's part of Sky's 'One Day of Crime' thing they have going on today. Sarah Jane Mee is still on now (11:25am) from a police control room in Middlesborough, with Gamal in the Glass Box for the other stories. Rewinding on the stream SJM anchored Sunrise so guessing she's doing 6-12 and Kay 12-6:30.

Kay Burley got grilled on social media recently after she made controversial remarks about burqas to Tory MP Andrew Bridgen.

Really enjoyed Sophy Ridge covering Kay's shift this afternoon. With the unique presenting style that this particular programme brings, it's good to see different presenters' personalities coming out.

They had the same chemistry when they worked together at Sky News previously.

Live at five with Jeremy
And she was excellent too, just like she was when she was with Sky. What a business team they had when she was there with Dharsini alongside Joel Hills, Anna Jones and Jeff Randall.
Ratflump, BFGArmy and derek500 gave kudos

I never thought I'd be typing this... anyway, Lorna Dunkley is now an anchor on the ABC News channel in Australia:



She, of course, isn't the first British news presenter to work for the ABC - former ITN journalist Ros Childs has presented the lunchtime news on ABC for many years.

Wow, they have some great music over there! Shocked

Glad for Lorna, she was always one of Sky's best. Smile

Lorna was always one of the best on Sky News - could handle anything from breaking news to the Press Previews with ease and after leaving Sunrise never seemed to get a main slot she deserved.

Shame she's no longer on Sky News and Australian viewers are lucky to have her.
