Kirsty Gallacher addresses future on GB News amid fan's worry following absence

Elsewhere, Kirsty hit back at a viewer who criticised her views on the show.

They had penned: “Utterly disgraceful & abhorrent views from @DarrenGBNews & @TheRealKirstyG on @GBNEWS.

“We’re perfectly happy for some people to be denied their unalienable civil rights & allow the creation of an apartheid state because I had the vaccine so I could go on f****** holiday.”

She then replied saying: “I absolutely did not say that. Please get your facts right.

“We were merely documenting the government’s proposal. I actually have strong views to the contrary.”

Watford promoted to Premier League after one-season absence from top flight

Watford have been promoted to the Premier League just nine months after they were relegated from the top flight.

The Hornets secured the second automatic promotion spot – following in Norwich City’s footsteps – with a 1-0 victory over Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

Elsewhere in the Football League, Hull City were promoted to the Championship with a 2-1 victory at Lincoln City. At the other end of League One, Swindon were relegated after their 5-0 thrashing by MK Dons.

Ismaila Sarr was brought down in the box and converted a penalty in the 11th minute to grab his fourth goal in five matches and steer Xisco’s men to victory.

With two games remaining in the season, Watford can still clinch the Championship title, although they will need Norwich to fail to win either of their two remaining games.

The Canaries beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1 on Saturday to maintain their five-point cushion at the table’s summit.

Watford have been no strangers to managerial changes in recent years – sacking Javi Gracia, Quique Sanchez Flores and Nigel Pearson last term – and another mid-season appointment worked wonders this campaign.

Vladimir Ivic was sacked in December after a marginally underwhelming start to the season left the Hornets fifth in the table.

Will Watford survive in the Premier League next season? Have your say in the comments.

Xisco was appointed as Ivic’s replacement and brought about an upturn in form, leading the club on an impressive run of 10 victories in 11 games to pull clear of other automatic promotion hopefuls last month.

Sarr – the match-winner against Millwall – has been a standout performer throughout the season, top-scoring with 13 goals and laying on 10 assists for his teammates.

Watford also boast the best defensive record in the Championship having conceded just 28 times in 44 outings.

Attention now turns to the melee for the play-off spots, with Brentford, Bournemouth, Barnsley and Swansea currently occupying third to sixth in the table.

The Swans have an eight-point cushion over Reading in seventh.

Brenda Blethyn: Vera star says her secrets to a happy marriage is absence: 'It just works'

She continued to tell Good Housekeeping magazine: “They say absence makes the heart grow fonder – well, it’s true! Being apart seems to keep us together.”

The actress has been married to her second husband Michael Mayhew since 2010, the year before she was cast as the Geordie DCI.

Brenda has previously opened up about how the pair make their marriage work with her busy filming schedule.

“I think it helps that I’m up in Northumberland half the time filming Vera, so long may it continue,” she told the MailOnline.

“But seriously, I genuinely think it’s about having our own space. We have a place on the coast in my hometown of Ramsgate in Kent, and even when we’re there we sit in separate rooms, Michael with his music in one, me with my crossword in another.

Monty Don reacts after BBC’s Charlie Stayt questions his absence from garden ‘I'm out!'

Monty Don, 65, took BBC Breakfast host Charlie Stayt, 58, by surprise when he appeared via video link for an interview on the show this morning from his study. The presenter arrived on the programme to discuss the upcoming series of his hit BBC show Gardeners’ World with Charlie and his co-host Naga Munchetty, 46.
However, as he is most often seen tending to his garden in most of his TV appearances, Charlie was left questioning why the horticulturalist was chatting to them from inside his home for a change.

Charlie began by saying: “Good morning Monty!

“Not in the garden, in your study I believe, is that right?”

Explaining his choice of location for the live interview, Monty declared: “Yes.

Monty replied: “I love filming and I think you want to do well – the whole team wants to do well – and just because it’s a very calm programme. 

“What you see is gentle and flows, you know as well as I do there’s a lot of paddling under the surface to made that happen and there’s a lot of skill – not from me in particular – but everybody involved is really good at it. 

“And so, I certainly feel, ‘today this could be our last programme ever, let’s make it the best we’ve ever done. Let’s really go out on a high’, and tomorrow we’ll do the same!’

“And, that way, it ups the ante a bit,” he continued to explain. 

It comes as Monty will be back in Longmeadow welcoming viewers and Spring into his garden on the popular show. 

He took to Twitter to announce the return of the programme in view of his 214,000 followers this morning.

The gardening enthusiast penned: “You have waited all winter – but the new series of Gardeners World is back tonight at 9pm on BBC2.

“See you then.”

BBC Breakfast airs every day at 6am on ITV and Gardeners’ World returns this evening on BBC Two at 9pm with a brand new series.

Carol Kirkwood reacts to BBC Breakfast 'imposter' as co-star talks weather host's absence

Carol Kirkwood, 58, was missing from BBC Breakfast, as the meteorologist reacted to her co-star Matt Taylor, 44, who stood in for the weather forecaster. He revealed a cheeky “imposter” was in the studio as Carol’s replacement.
Taking to Twitter, Matt explained that the show’s boss, Richard Frediani, had assumed that Carol would be fronting the weather but was mistaken.

In view of his 34,600 followers, the meteorologist admitted he didn’t want to “disappoint” so unveiled a show stand-in.

Matt penned: “Morning all! My @BBCBreakfast boss @BBCFrediani thought it was the wonderful @carolkirkwood on weather duties today. And you know me …I don’t like to disappoint! See you from 6am.”

He accompanied the post with a candid clip that showcased a Carol cardboard cut-out which he held in front of him.

“Thanks for the chuckle,” a social media user remarked.

Carol recently took a break from her weather presenting duties but is due to return this week.

It comes after viewers recently quizzed the meteorologist about her role on Breakfast after weather forecaster Owain Wyn Evans stepped in.

Carol, who presents on weekdays, has spent more than two decades presenting the weather at the BBC.

Earlier this month, Owain stepped in at the weekend to front the weather forecast and was met with praise from viewers.

One user said they were “loving the new happy, happy weatherman” and another praised his “great weather reporting”.

A third wrote: “Morning Owain, a breath of fresh (if chilly) air having you on the box and in the studio this morning.”

BBC Breakfast airs weekdays on BBC One at 6am.
