GB News investors have committed to a further £60 million capital injection to accelerate its growth, with existing backers Legatum Ventures Limited and Sir Paul Marshall having bought out Discovery Inc. Co-lead investor Sir Paul says:

“This is more than a financial investment. As investors we’re proud of what GB News doing for media plurality in the UK, bringing fresh perspectives to the national conversation on issues that matter to real Britain.”

GB News CEO Angelos Frangopoulos announced new appointments:

  • Camilla Tominey joins in a new senior political presenting role, in addition to her existing position at the Telegraph.
  • Andrew Pierce joins with his own show later this year, also continuing his senior editorial position at the Daily Mail
  • Michael Portillo joins the channel’s political team and will launch his own new programme in the autumn

So far the GB News formula is beating the TalkTV formula for audience share. The financial backers seem happy…

Camilla’s Conniption at Cleaner’s Cameo Appearance

A spot of embarrassment for the Telegraph’s Camilla Tominey on Politics Live this morning as she was seen admonishing her cleaner for walking into shot while she was preparing to speak about Sir Keir’s conference speech. At least it looks like Camilla’s providing ample PPE for her staff…

UPDATE: Camilla gets in touch to say she was filming at the Royal Overseas League today so had to do Politics Live from there, “That’s not my house!!! Cleaner walked into shot just at wrong moment!”

Camilla Tominey to Telegraph

MediaGuido can reveal a major Lobby move: Sunday Express political editor Camilla Tominey is leaving the paper after 15 years to join The Telegraph as their new Associate Editor (Politics and Royals). She is believed to have been poached by Rob Winnett and will have a roving brief to land scoops, big interviews and campaigns, reporting alongside the Lobby and largely based in Westminster. Readers will remember her stealing the show on Question Time.

Camilla was the journalist who first broke the news of Harry and Meghan dating back in 2016, and she’ll be glad to only be doing two jobs rather than the four she had at the Sunday Express. She starts in September. Congratulations – this will set off a bit of a merry-go-round…

Camilla Tominey on Labour’s Smears Hypocrisy

Corbynistas have been shouting “smear” this week over the Agent COB spygate revelations, but as Guido pointed out and Sunday Express Political Editor Camilla Tominey said on Question Time last night, they seem to have forgotten Tom Watson’s own track record. Good point well made…
