Popular anchor comes back after changing gender


India Willoughby had presented the news for the ITV Border region for more than 10 years but she had another name and another gender. And noe, after 6-year-break, the anchor comes back on air as female. “ITV have been fantastic, it hasn’t been weird or awkward and they have just welcomed me back”, the newsreader tells ‘The Metro’, “I didn’t feel nervous at all when I walked back through the door again, they made me feel like I was home. I am just getting my toes back into the water for now, I have a lot to catch up on from over the last 10 years and all of the technology has changed massively. There are obviously a lot of new faces but I can still have the same banter with the old ones – they have realised that I am the still the same person, I just look different on the outside. I don’t think that there have been people like me in the public eye in this country before – I wouldn’t want to make myself out to be some kind of an example or anything but it just shows how the nature of TV has changed for the better. I don’t think that I would have been accepted a few years ago.”
