BBC board member Sir Robbie Gibb attempted to block her appointment. Gibb, a former Communications Director to Theresa May’s Conservative government, texted the BBC Director for news and current affairs, Fran Unsworth, to say that the BBC “cannot make the appointment”, threatening that if it went ahead the government’s “fragile trust in the BBC will be shattered”.
Some media outlets also drew attention to her now-deleted tweets, which were critical of Brexit and the government.
