The former TV presenter at STV who was the face of shows such as Live at Five, Scots In Paradise, Edinburgh Festival 2018 and the Scottish Children's Lottery, will be on air with Mr Clarke from Monday.

Speaking ahead of her first show, Ms Reoch said: “This is an absolute dream job for me and I could think of no one better to work with than the legendary Des Clarke."
