Alison Comyn was the lead news presenter on UTV Ireland from it’s start until it closed. She’s done overnight shifts on Sky News before but I think this may have been her first daytime shift.

It was rather stupid to have 4 different presenters doing the Sophy Ridge on Sunday show in a month. Niall Paterson was the perfect choice as he was her replacement during maternity leave but to then have Ed Conway and Stephen Dixon doing it too seemed a little odd when surely they could have got 1 to do all 4 weeks

This will be an unpopular opinion but I've really gone off Beth Rigby since she became political editor. The latest interview with Boris Johnson I felt like I was watching Adam Boulton as she kept cutting him off every few seconds and was just generally rude going at him like a dog with a bone (or in her case that book). let him speak. Increasingly we get these kind of interviews and to me they just come across as rude and disrespectful

For anyone who thinks I'm calling Beth a dog I'm not. its just the way she goes after someone and she always has that little book in her hands hence the book joke above.

Incidentally Sophy said she was back at 9am next Sunday but the EPG and BBC website have Marr at 9, followed by a BBC News simulcast from 10-10.30.

Surely this will change, otherwise it'll be a frustrating clash for those of us who flick between the two shows currently.

I know what you mean about Beth. Big fan of hers but feels a bit like she’s playing for retweets recently. I think there may just be an element of finding her feet though - arguably Faisal Islam never really found his and I think Beth will struggle whilst Adam Boulton is still around.
