ALEX SCOTT SET 'TO CO-HOST SOCCERAID 2021'

Alex Scott is reportedly set to co-host this year's Socceraid on ITV following the departure of Kirsty Gallacher.



A source told The Sun: "After her stint on Strictly Come Dancing in 2019 everyone working in TV wants a piece of Alex. She is one of the most in-demand females on the box...


They continued: "After Kirsty stepped down from Soccer Aid, Alex was approached and jumped at the chance to be involved. Soccer Aid is an amazing event which helps raise millions for charity and Alex wants to do everything she can to help."


Confirming her departure earlier this year, Kirsty said: "I’ve loved every minute of my experience on Soccer Aid, it’s been fabulous to work with Dermot, such an amazing team and the amazing players that have kindly given up their time to play... I will take away many fond memories and feel personally proud that in addition to the money raised from the match, myself and Rachel Riley also raised £160k for Unicef on The Chase – a charity that will always remain close to my heart."


Socceraid returns later this year on ITV.
