Kirsty Gallacher is a fantastic awards host and presenter.
2009 saw Kirsty host the fifth year of Ant versus Dec, a segment on popular, primetime ITV1 show Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Kirsty ensured fair play between the Geordie Duo and their celebrity teams by keeping score as they competed in daring weekly challenges.

While for Channel Four Kirsty hosted The Games following her triumph in the previous series.
Hosting Sports and Entertainment Shows
Continuing the sporting theme, Kirsty has hosted her own sports and entertainment show for BBC Radio Five Live on Saturday mornings and has presented a weekly Wednesday evening Golf series for the station. Both shows saw her interviewing various luminaries from the sporting world while discussing the pressing issues of the day. Kirsty co-presented the star-studded golf extravaganza, the All Star Cup for ITV1/ITV2, live from Celtic Manor in Wales, which saw Europe take on the USA in a three-day golf tournament.
