Kaplinsky quits BBC

By Mirror.co.uk 05/10/2007

Natasha Kaplinsky will quit the BBC and join Five News, it was announced today.

She has been with the Beeb since 2002 and hosts the Six O’Clock News bulletin as well as major shows such as Children In Need.

Kaplinsky, 35, said: "After five incredibly rewarding years at the BBC, I found the chance to work with the team at Five too exciting to pass up."

Five plan to radically relaunch their news programmes and see Natasha as a key part of their new approach.

She will present the main bulletins at 5.30pm and 7pm, replacing Kirsty Young, who left in the summer and is joining the BBC as the new host of Crimewatch.

Chris Shaw, senior programme controller at Five heralded the Oxford-educated journalist as one of the country’s leading news presenters.

He said: "Natasha has proved she has real authority and with her BBC1 shows, she also demonstrated her warmth and star quality."

Kaplinsky started her career on local news and joined Sky News in 2000. She made headlines when she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing with Brendan Cole and the pair allegedly embarked on an affair.

She recently took part in Who Do You Think You Are? and traced her family back to the Holocaust.

I was shocked when I found out that Natasha has jumped ship and joined Channel 5 she will do well there. 
 
But I think she may come back in a few years time.

She is reportedly to be paid a million a year, lets be honest you can't blame her for moving can you. All she has to do is sit behind a desk and read an autocue.
I wonder who will be replacing her.
