DARREN Grimes has confirmed his sacking from GB News.
On Thursday night, Politicalite exclusively revealed that Grimes on-screen contract had been terminated by the right-wing broadcaster.
A source said: “Darren Grimes on-screen contract has been terminated at GBNews.”
“His Sunday slot was cancelled and his Saturday slot reduced to an half an hour last month.”
Grimes tweeted last night: “Sadly, my GB News show, Real Britain, is ending in a few weeks. I want to make its last few episodes on air the best of all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to those who have loyally tuned in and supported me and the channel – it has been the greatest ride of my life.”
The claims follow the presenters suspension last month over an alleged relationship with a colleague.
A source claimed to Politicalite: “He was sacked over an alleged relationship with a junior staffer who worked on his team.”
He was also accused of abusing his position of power at the broadcaster.
Our GB News insider claimed: “He abused his authority to demand the relationship with the junior staffer.”
“The lad was threatened with losing his job if he did not comply” added the source.
Grimes, 29 hit back at reports he had been fired last month, telling Politicalite last month: “I haven’t been sacked from GB News.”
However, when repeatedly questioned by Politicalite, the GB News star refused to comment on claims he had been rapped over a relationship with a GB News staffer in which he allegedly abused his position of power.
“You’ll see me on air this weekend, and I cannot wait to be back.” the Real Britain presenter added.
When pressed again, he said: “That’s my comment.”
