Anyone know where Kate Garraway has got to, she hasn't been on for ages?

Last Thursday we had the very unusual line up of Eammon Holmes and Penny Smith which was interesting, and possibly how it should be permanently!


I do like the Eamonn & Penny mix. If it was Penny instead of Anne in 1993, it may have stuck like that forever.

Though perhaps Eamonn & Penny is only good as it doesn't happen a lot.

As for Kate, I presume that she's still off ill.


Didnt Anne get sacked because she always looked miserable? Esther Mcvie was pretty good.

That's a pretty libellous comment - be careful!!! Anne certainly did not get sacked...she left to go to local BBC because she got sick of getting up at 3am and wanted her life back.


There are a couple of different opinions going round on that.... apparently GMTV told Anne that the her-Eammon thing wasn't working out after they moved to five days a week. She actually said what I've quoted above on the BBC website.

I think David's referring to Fiona Armstrong, who was sacked or moved back to ITN or something like that. Michael Wilson is now with Sky News of course.

Ah the good ol' days!

Yeah i think it was Fiona Armstrong not Anne. I remember there was something in a national newspaper about it. From what we here though its always been a rough ride behind the scenes on GMTV.

According to TV Ark, there were changes afoot, that didn't include Fiona, whatever that means. She then moved back to Border.

From the look of the trailer that has just aired on ITV1 I'd say yes.

If you were just watching ITV1 before the South Bank Show you would have caught a bit at the end of the trailer for tomorrow. Looks very rubbish in comparison to last years main ident with the shiny GMTV logo and shining spinning yet stationary snowflakes on the usual background and a merry christmas banner over the bottom of the logo.

I will be tuning in to see what it's all about.

Nothing gr8 this year! No christmassy ident for GMTV NEWSHOUR OR GMTV TODAY APART FROM THE START UP IDENT, insead of the presenters sitting on the seats there is snow and the 1998 theme with a banner at the bottom reading "Merry Christmas"
The studio isn't as good as the previous years but at least they have put the trees up.

Has anyone captured it?

As a big fan of GMTV at Christmas and GMTV itself, im rather dissapointed this year.. The GMTV Today ident at the end is brill and festive, but no Red!! As for the main GMTV Ident, it looks cheap and doesnt look festive at all, why couldnt they use last years ident?!?!? Last years was so nice. Since January GMTV has gone down hill a bit, with the launch of the horrible trailers and trailer logo. The shiny red and white used back in September last year was so much more classier and modern, and now they use the standard ident with cheap snowflakes for the main ident, instead of last years!!. Like i say the GMTV Today titles are much better made with better snowflakes.

I quite agree with you, the GMTV studio has been much MUCH more festive than the previous years

And as for the idents I don't think I should comment on them as they are so BAD!
The gmtv today ident is exactly the same except for the snow, right at the end.

Someone needs to complain the GMTV Exclamation
