Esther McVey has announced her resignation from GB News with immediate effect.
The MP for Tatton was yesterday given a major role in Rishi Sunak’s Cabinet, with her main role said to be “speaking common sense” on behalf of the Government. As a result, Esther is unable to carry out presenting duties because of the ministerial code.
McVey had been presenting on The People’s Channel since August 2022 alongside her husband and fellow Conservative MP Philip Davies.
Speaking on her departure, she told GB News it was “far from an easy decision”.
