Simon McCoy has quit his role on GB News as Eamonn Holmes is announced as a new presenter on the channel.

Today, it was revealed that after 15 years on This Morning, Eamonn would be hosting a new show on GB News, which has experienced its fair share of struggles since its launch in June.

In a statement, he said: ‘I’ve spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups, and GB News is one of the most exciting yet. It’s just the kind of shake-up the industry needs.’

Simon left BBC News after almost 18 years to join the news channel, which was previously helmed by former chair Andrew Neil.

However, his time with the firm has come to an end.

GB News confirmed to Metro.co.uk that Simon has left the channel for ‘personal reasons’.

In a statement, CEO Angelos Frangopoulos said: ‘Simon is an outstanding broadcaster and we’re sorry to see him go.

‘We remain open to ways we can work with him in future.’

Eamonn will be co-hosting a new breakfast programme in the new year, which he’ll present alongside Isabel Webster.

The broadcaster celebrated the news of his new position in a statement shared on Twitter, writing: ‘Here is The News ….. I’m joining @GBNEWS from The New Year. Hope you are coming with me and wish me well.

‘In the meantime Compliments of The Season to you and thanks for your support folks.’
