Ulrika Jonsson has said she took a step away from presenting because the quality of TV was dipping with "trashy shows" and that "everyone on social media" thought they could do her job.

The presenter - a fixture of 1990s and 2000s TV with programmes such as Gladiators, Shooting Stars and Celebrity Big Brother under her belt - said that the change in the TV landscape in recent years was the reason she decided to be a stay-at-home mother.

Jonsson (50) added: "I didn't understand it any more."

She added that, although she loves to watch such programmes, she "didn't want to be a part of them".
