Nope, she did a shift in late October 2017.
Maybe your confusing her with Vicki Young?
She def presented before, it was a Newsroom Live/VD shift when Joanna Gosling wasn't being offered any shifts. Vicki Young has covered numerous times, which is why I can tell the difference between the two!
I can't remember Eleanor Garnier covering a shift as a presenter, not this recently anyway. I've looked at the "BBC News Fix" website for October 2017 to try to resolve this and, indeed, Eleanor is not there at all. There's lots of Annita McVeighs and there's also a Tim Willcox & Vicki Young but no Eleanors. As you insist you didn't see Vicki Young, I can only conclude it actually was Vicki Young or it wasn't in October 2017. I don't think Vicki has covered "numerous" times, that is of Newsroom Live as opposed to the evening shift and weekend shifts in more recent years - I think probably she's covered one or two or maybe slightly more than that - I wouldn't call it "numerous" but I'd have to check via the News Fix website to see whether that is the case. AFAIK, the BBC News Fix website is a contemporaneous record, recorded on the day of the broadcasting, or certainly within 24 hours of that, like this forum sometimes is as well, and it would accurately record Eleanor Garnier if she had been the presenter. It does show her for last Friday.
