KAY Burley has shown her support for National Transplant Week.

The Sky News reader, originally from Beech Hill, joined Homeland’s David Harewood, Richard Branson, Sky News and Emmerdale’s Wil Johnson to urge people to donate organs to save people’s lives.

They feature in a series of short, memorable films which inspire people to have a conversation about organ donation with their loved ones.

Watch the clips on www.youtube.com/transplantweek.

The 52-year-old has also spoken of how she wished people would not judge her by what they see on the TV.

She said: “I’m a conduit for bad news in my job, but that doesn’t represent who I am.

“I’m a very positive person and I try to treat each day as if it were my last because one day it will be.”

But she admitted her positive nature can lead her into trouble as she added: “I’m the kind of person who always says yes to dancing on the table, then gets into all sorts of trouble and thinks ’Maybe I shouldn’t have done that.’”
