Where is Kay Burley today and why isn’t she on Sky News?
Kay isn’t hosting Kay Burley Live on today (October 8, 2021).
Instead, she has been replaced with Sky News journalist Niall Paterson.
It is believed Kay is on annual leave and she will return next week.
The presenter hasn’t revealed on Twitter why she is off.
Why was Kay off air before?
In June 2021, Kay returned to Sky News following a six-month suspension from her show after breaking the lockdown rules.
The 60-year-old news anchor apologised in December 2020 after “inadvertently” breaking restrictions to celebrate her birthday in London.
Kay was unaware of the changes, which saw London placed in tier two, and agreed to step back from her post following the mistake.
Vowing to take six months off the air, Kay wrote in a statement at the time that she was having a “period of reflection” but would return.

Kay wasn’t the only Sky employee to be caught out breaking the rules – with correspondents Beth Rigby and Inzamam Rashid, who both came Kay’s party, taking three months off each.
Kay expressed her great regret at throwing the party, writing to her fellow employees in an apologetic statement.
She said: “Some dear friends and colleagues – some of the most talented and committed professionals in our business – have been pulled into this episode and I regret this enormously.
When is the Kay Burley show on Sky News?
Kay has been presenting on Sky News since 2018.
She moved from the afternoon news slot to the breakfast show in 2019.
You can usually catch her weekdays from 8am until 10am.
