I am so nosey I have to know what’s going on all the time

As the Sky News broadcaster is at the heart of the big news, it is vital for her to keep up-to-date - by watching 11 television screens at home.

She said: “I’m so nosey that I need to know what is going on all the time. A TV in the car, one in the kitchen, one in the sitting room and one in each bedroom. In total? Eleven.

“Three iPads, if I’m on location, one is for autocue, one is for e-mails coming in and one to monitor what’s going on.”

Speaking to the Radio Times ahead of the Bafta TV awards, she disclosed that she doesn’t just watch news on TV, as she likes nothing more than relaxing by having a duvet day when she is not at work.

She said: “I open a fantastic bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and my dogs lie on the bed with me, and I just binge. I don’t answer the phone or anything. White Collar, Scandal, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, Better Call Saul - I am completely hooked.”

Kay also recently admitted she suffered a wardrobe malfunction after her bra snapped live on air as she questioned David Cameron.

She said: “I just had to tuck it in and carry on. I was feeling quite calm until that point. You have to be prepared for anything.”
