Five gets “plenty” of bids to stand in for pregnant Kaplinsky

Five News has received “plenty of inquiries” from people hoping to fill in for presenter Natasha Kaplinsky when she goes on maternity leave, according to the broadcaster’s senior controller.

Chris Shaw told the Times that Kaplinsky, who yesterday confirmed she was pregnant only six weeks into her reported £3m deal with Five, was “not planning to stop newsreading for quite some time yet” but the channel would look to find a stand in closer to her leaving date.
