BBC anchor Jane Hill comes out
BBC newsreader Jane Hill has made the headlines herself - after revealing she is a lesbian.
Jane, 40, has disclosed to the BBC's in-house magazine Ariel that she was living with her partner Sara, a TV camerawoman, and their dog Mavis. The couple have been together for about a year.
'Everyone has known for years that Jane is gay,' a colleague said. 'She hasn't made a secret of it at the BBC and although she has had other girlfriends over the years, this one seems to be the one.'
