In a statement, Andrew said, “I am sorry to go but I have concluded it’s time to reduce my commitments on a number of fronts. Over the summer I’ve had time to reflect on my extensive portfolio of interests and decided it was time to cut back. I wish GB News well in continuing to fulfil its founding promise and mission to reach audiences currently underserved by existing news broadcasters”.

While he also tweeted, “It’s official: I have resigned as Chairman and Lead Presenter of GB News”, as reported by dailymail.co.uk.
