Kirsty Gallacher opens up on quitting GB News for major health reason | The Sun

KIRSTY Gallacher has opened up on the major health condition which saw her quit her breakfast presenting gig on GB News.

The former Sky Sports presenter, 46, admitted she found a "benign tumour" shortly before leaving her GB News co-host role alongside Simon McCoy.

Kirsty told Top Sante Magazine: "I left GB News mainly for health reasons.

"I was presenting the breakfast show with Simon McCoy.

"I’d found out last autumn that I had an acoustic neuroma in my right ear, which is a small, benign tumour that causes low-level tinnitus.

"It often deprives me of good-quality sleep, so getting up early to do breakfast shows took too much of a toll on my health."

Meanwhile more recently, Kirsty returned to screens as she tried her hand on Celebrity MasterChef.

Yet she left some fans unimpressed with her efforts, with others branding her cohort the "worst ever" on the series.

Sports expert Kirsty decided not to bother cooking for the first round and served up a salad with a lemon dressing instead.

And things went from bad to worse in the second round for the brunette beauty when she tried her head at a Japanese pancake and wound up torching the underside of it.

This prompted Gregg Wallace and John Torode to have a lot of fun making cheeky references to her "burnt bottom" during the segment.

In the aftermath, she told the same publication: "Doing Celebrity MasterChef was a real challenge!
