Baroness Arlene Foster is set to become a regular presenter on GB News alongside making documentaries for the broadcaster, it has been announced.

The former DUP leader and First Minister of Northern Ireland will step up from presenting one hour on Fridays to becoming a regular fixture during weekly programming.

Baroness Foster said she was delighted at the opportunity to introduce a more frequent Northern Irish perspective into all debates and news stories at GB News.

She said: “It’s vital that Northern Irish voices are always heard, not just on stories about NI, but in every political discussion coming out of Westminster.”

It was announced that she will lead coverage of The Twelfth on the channel, which is returning to broadcast the event after the BBC dropped its live coverage last year.

Baroness Foster will also start making documentaries under the GB News Investigates brand, with her first programme looking at the role of faith in politics.
