Fran Unsworth is set to leave the corporation after having held the position of BBC’s director for news and current affairs since January 2018.  Her stepping down comes amid internal battles at the BBC over a staff reorganisation and news that Jess Brammar was in the running for the top BBC post.

The rumoured appointment came under scrutiny following previous Brexit-bashing Ms Brammar had conducted on social media, including an instance in a since-deleted tweet where Ms Brammar described Brexit as being like a popular TV comedy drama but “less funny”.

Fran Unsworth is set to step down by the end of January
