Adrian Chiles must wish he could turn back time with all the bad luck he has had since leaving the One Show at the BBC. Since leaving the BBC in a big money deal, his career has not gone the way he had hoped. It now seems things have become even bleaker as he has now been replaced as the lead presenter of ITV’s football coverage.
ITV, who has not given a reason why Adrian Chiles has been replaced, has announced that Mark Pougatch will now be the main presenter for ITV Sport, leaving Adrian Chiles without a future.
Pougatch said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining ITV and to be given this great opportunity.
“I’m looking forward to working with ITV’s talented pool of commentators and pundits on some of the very best football there is.”
Fans of Adrian Chiles have turned to Twitter asking why ITV has decided to make such a sudden change.
ITV Director of Sport Niall Sloane said: “Mark is a highly-respected sports journalist and an outstanding broadcaster.
“We’re delighted to welcome Mark to the ITV Sports team.”
I suppose the next career move for Adrian Chiles could be the summer Celebrity Big Brother show.
