Neil quits as chairman and presenter of GB News


Neil will no longer have his own show

Andrew Neil has quit as chairman of the fledgling GB News television channel. 

The former Sunday Times editor and BBC political presenter, 72, will make twice-weekly appearances as a commentator but will no longer have his own show.

His departure follows a summer of speculation about his commitment to the channel, prompted by his decision to take a long holiday after just two weeks of shows.
