She has been tipped to replace Andrew Marr on the flagship Sunday morning show as part of a shake-up of political staff at the Corporation.

Announcing the move to her 1.3million Twitter followers Kuenssberg said: “I’ve been so lucky to do the best daily reporting job in the business, with the best colleagues anyone could wish for.

“It’s been incredible to occupy the chair during a time of such huge change and to try to make sense of it for our viewers, listeners and readers online.

“I’ll miss the daily drama, and our wonderful team in Westminster, immensely. But after nearly seven years and what feels like decades’ worth of headlines, it’s time for the next move.”
