Kirsty Gallacher has been charged with drink-driving.

The 41-year-old presenter was slapped with one count of "driving a motor vehicle when alcohol level was above the legal limit" after she was pulled over by police in Eton, Berkshire, over the weekend because she was spotted driving erratically on her way to pick up her children Oscar, 11, and Jude, seven, from her ex-husband Paul Sampson's house.

According to the BBC, Kirsty - who was kept in custody until the early evening last night (13.08.17) has been bailed to appear at Slough Magistrates' Court on September 4.

The evening before her arrest, the Sky Sports News presenter had posted a photo of herself enjoying a night out with a group of friends at the Winning Post pub in nearby Winkfield. However, Kirsty didn't seem to have an alcoholic drink in the picture.

Kirsty had been presenting a 6pm Sky Sports News show on Friday (11.08.17) evening alongside Jim White.

Kirsty - who split from rugby union star Paul in 2014 after four years of marriage - recently admitted she is keen to have more children.

She said: "You have to get up and go to work, and you worry about how they're doing at school while you're trying to do live TV. But you do learn, you develop and you do get stronger. You have to learn from your mistakes.

"I would like more children. There, I've said it now, but it's true! If I'm lucky enough to have one more then I'd be thrilled, as I don't feel like I have finished yet on the baby thing."

Her family are said to be furious about the arrest.
