Sky said everyone "will miss her greatly" and they "wish her every success in the future".

Last year Kirsty was slapped with a two-year driving ban after she blew almost three times over the legal limit on a breathalyser test when she was stopped by police in Eton, Berkshire.

Kirsty appeared at East Berkshire Magistrates" Court in Slough at the beginning of September last year to plead guilty to drink-driving.

Probation officer Jasvir Kaur Bhatti - who put together a pre-sentencing report containing information on the offender which will depict the likelihood of her re-offending in order to determine the most suitable sentence - claimed the presenter had no idea she was over the limit and doesn't drink regularly.

He told the court: ""There was no intention to drive while over the limit. She did not realise she was over the next day. She does not have a drink problem. She works long hours and drives a lot so she does not usually drink."

He also said her divorce from her husband Paul Sampson had caused her stress and she was extremely apologetic for her illegal behaviour behind the wheel.

He added: "There are divorce proceedings going on at the moment which are stressful. She is very remorseful and apologises.""

Jennifer Dempster, mitigating, had also explained that Kirsty had taken a taxi home following her night of boozing and had gone to pick her car up the next morning.

She explained: "This is of course the morning after drinking, and it is a topic which is a hot one at present. This is in many senses unintentional drink-driving. What this defendant did was exactly right until 11:00 BST the next morning."
