Tasmin Lucia Khan to leave Daybreak this Friday

News presenter [[Tasmin Lucia Khan]] will read the news on Daybreak for the final time tomorrow, Friday 6th January 2012.

This evening, Tasmin tweeted: “Tomorrow is my last day at @Daybreak. I’ve had a fantastic time! I leave the show in the capable hands of David & Karl. I’m off to America!!

“Lots of exciting meetings planned in the States… but the UK will always be home!”

Tasmin’s been reading the news on Daybreak since its launch in September 2010.

Main hosts [[Christine Bleakley]] and [[Adrian Chiles]] were axed from the show in December after disappointing TV ratings. Peter Fincham, ITV Director of Television, said at the time: “Adrian and Christine are both superb presenters. They have worked tirelessly to help establish Daybreak on ITV1 and they leave the show at a point when ratings have recently seen their biggest year on year increase.”

Daybreak returned from the Christmas break on Tuesday with a refreshed on-screen look.
