While Kirsty is not widely known for being outspoken, her opinions have become more pronounced since joining the GB News lineup earlier this year. The veteran broadcaster was announced as part of the new channel’s team in March. Many were familiar with her from her lengthy stint presenting Sky Sports News, a role she took on in 1998.

Others will know her as the daughter of Scottish golfing legend Bernard Gallacher who captained a string of Ryder Cup tournaments.

The golf has been a recurring theme in Kirsty’s life and something she speaks about at length in various interviews.

Nothing was different when she sat down with The Daily Telegraph last year and revealed snippets about her personal life.

She noted, however, that one famous Scottish course was no longer a favourite since it had been taken over by Donald Trump.

Kirsty told the publication: “In Britain, I love Gleneagles and St Andrews, the home of golf.

“I used to like Turnberry, before it was bought by Donald Trump.

“Going to St Andrews for the Open is always a wonderful experience.”

Trump bought the entire South Ayrshire complex, including the hotel, from Dubai-based group Leisurecorp in 2014.

One viewer quickly hit out and what they perceived as an “abhorrent” take on the situation.

Writing to GB News on Twitter, the person said: “Utterly disgraceful & abhorrent views from @DarrenGBNews & @TheRealKirstyG on @GBNEWS.

“We’re perfectly happy for some people to be denied their unalienable civil rights & allow the creation of an apartheid state because I had the vaccine so I could go on f****** holiday.”

Kirsty shortly responded to what she believed was a misrepresentation of her words.

She replied: “I absolutely did not say that.

“Please get your facts right.”

“We were merely documenting the government’s proposal.

“I actually have strong views to the contrary.”

Kirsty is appearing on James Martin’s Saturday Morning today which airs on ITV One at 9:25am.
