Gillian is currently the British Affairs Correspondent for BBC World Service.
Thanks Nicky - do you know if she still does the odd stint on BBC News 24?
She was always very good... I recall when she was presenting on New Year's Eve (Hogmanay) through to New Year's Day a few years ago. She always wished viewers a "Happy New Year", something sadly very few of the other presenters have done... including Deborah Mackenzie this year!
