ANDREW NEIL 'DELAYS GB NEWS RETURN'

GB News chairman Andrew Neil has been absent from his presenting duties on the channel since late June.




It was widely expected that Andrew Neil will return to present his 8pm weekday show - which has been presented by Colin Brazier in Neil's absence - however, The Times now understand that this prospect is "out of the question".


The Times say the veteran presenter regarded GB News’ launch as "shambolic after it was plagued by problems including poorly lit sets, misspelt chyrons, misbehaving graphics and repeated lost connections to remote guests."



One GB News employee told The Times: “I won’t believe it until I see it. Hopefully he gets over himself and comes back — for the good of everyone.”


Andrew has reportedly been in talks with management for weeks about his return, however these talks have not yet reached a resolution.
