. “Sky News’ standards and professionalism are of the highest quality and I will do all I can to maintain them while in the Sunday morning chair.” In March 2020, Phillips was suspended from Labour following allegations of Islamophobia. He defended his statements, saying it was “nonsense” to define being anti-Islam as racist as Muslims do not identify as a race. Head of Sky News John Ryley said: “Sky News is delighted to have Trevor join our team and bring his significant journalistic experience and fresh perspective to the news organisation on Sunday mornings. “The programme is an important weekend appointment for our viewers and we are keen to develop the way we assess the changing political landscape, hold those in authority to account and give clarity in times of uncertainty. “We wish Sophy all the best in the coming months while she is on maternity leave and look forward to her return.” Read More Related Articles Easing lockdown, changing the vaccination plan and an apology to Bolton... these are the five key points made by Boris Johnson as he addressed the nation Read More Related Articles Portugal WILL allow British tourists from May 17 following confusion on lockdown
