Daybreak's entertainment editor Kate Garraway admits it took her some time to adjust to her new role on the ITV1 breakfast show

Kate Garraway admits it took time to adjust to working on 'Daybreak'.

The former 'GMTV' host was named entertainment editor when her old show was replaced and while she understands the need for a change in programming, the blonde presenter admits she found it difficult to adapt at first.

She said: "Nobody likes change. For all of us that worked at 'GMTV', we were always very grateful and we knew how fond people were of the show. And we were always really pleased to work on something that people liked so much.

"But things had to change. 'Daybreak' is a new show and it's got all sorts of new things. It just takes time for people to get used to the changes."

Kate also admitted she feels lucky in her new role because she gets to hang out with so many Hollywood stars, and also guest host the main show when regular presenter Christine Bleakley is away.

She added to Star magazine: "I had a great time on the sofa on 'GMTV' and I had all sorts of fun talking to politicians and chancellors of the exchequer over the years. But it was time for a change!

"I think if most people had the choice of talking fiscal policy with Gordon Brown or gossiping with George Clooney, they would choose the latter.

"I'm in a lucky position because I do present 'Daybreak' when Christine Bleakley is unavailable and when Lorraine Kelly is off. I've got the best of both worlds. I'm very lucky."
