Logan: A "huge honour" to be Chancellor

TV presenter Gabby Logan says it's a huge honour to be installed as the first Chancellor of Leeds Trinity University.

She took on the role at a special ceremony on the University campus at Horsforth today. The University says it chose Gabby because she was born in Leeds and is an inspirational figure in the worlds of sport and journalism.

New Chancellor's gown designed and made in Leeds

To celebrate their first ever Chancellor, Leeds Trinity University have designed a gown to represent all things Leeds.

Yorkshire-born TV presenter Gabby Logan will wear the gown for her "installation" ceremony on June 6.

It's been designed by Leeds graduate designer, Kate Duckworth, and was produced at Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills. The gown is being made with cloth from Hainsworth's 230 year old Mill in Pudsey.

But the gown in its entirety is being kept under wraps until it is worn by the new Chancellor.

Fresh from winning the new Saturday night TV ratings battle Gabby Logan was back in her native Yorkshire today to accept her latest honour.

Gabby dipped her toes in the water on ITV1 at the weekend by hosting Splash, but this afternoon she was unveiled as the first Chancellor of the new Leeds Trinity University and held a masterclass for some of the media students in the university's own TV studio.

Duncan Wood caught up with her.
