GMTV bosses plan to axe two presenters

Thursday January 7, 2010

Two of GMTV's top-earning presenters face losing their jobs as part of a cost-cutting exercise by ITV, it has been revealed.

An insider told the Daily Mirror that one female, and one male host may be laid off after a review of the show has been carried out.

Familiar GMTV faces Andrew Castle, John Stapleton, Kate Garraway, Ben Shephard, Penny Smith and the newest arrival, Emma Crosby, are said to be "anxious" at the news.

Although new girl Emma and regular Ben Shephard are tipped to stay on the show because of their high ratings, it appears no one is safe.

ITV has said that "all areas" are under review.
