BACK ON THE BOX Legendary ITV newsreader makes shock comeback on rival channel 16 years after retiring

 A veteran ITV newsreader is to make a shock return to television on a rival channel.

Sir Trevor Macdonald is to appear on Channel 4's digital station More4 at the end of the month.

The award-winning former ITN journalist, 84, will join Bill Bailey on his travel show.

Bill, 59, will stroll around Essex as he and Sir Trevor explore the areas where pub walks take place.

During the episode viewers will see the pair taking in the scenes that inspired artist John Constable in Dedham Vale, the Essex and Suffolk border and around the Stour Estuary.

Trevor, a father of three, will be the first to discuss his emigration from Trinidad with Bill.

Trevor will also share insights from his decades-long career as a journalist.

Fans will get to see Trevor return onscreen on Tuesday, February 26 on More4.

Before Trevor's retirement from ITV he reportedly earned £600,000 a year.

Sir Trevor retired in 2005 but came out of retirement in 2007 – while not involved in day-to-day broadcasting, he regularly presents ITV specials.

He retired for the second time in 2008.

In 1999 Trevor was knighted for his services to journalism.
