Richard Arnold joins Daybreak
Former GMTV presenter Richard Arnold is to join Daybreak as showbiz editor.
He will take up his new role on the morning programme in June, just a few months before the relaunch which will see Aled Jones join Lorraine Kelly to front Daybreak.
Arnold was a familiar face on GMTV for many years as their resident TV critic, along with general showbiz reporting and even hosting ‘The Richard Arnold Show’ during the summer on GMTV.
“As Daybreak’s new Showbiz Editor I’m going back for one reason and one reason alone – to cut Kate Garraway’s fringe. That, and to bring everyone the big showbiz news of the day, star interviews, and exclusive behind the scenes gossip. It’ll be a great craic to be back with all the old faces, most of whom oddly enough look younger than ever.” – Arnold on his new role
It is not known what position Kate Garraway will now take, although she is expected to stay with the show. Dan Lobb, who is currently presenting Daybreak on a temporary basis with Garraway, will leave the show later this year.
