Television presenter Gabby Logan has announced she will step down as chancellor of Leeds Trinity University in January.

The former gymnast was named the university's first ever chancellor when she was appointed in January 2013 but will leave after five years in the role on January 6.

Her last event as chancellor will be the institution's graduation ceremony on December 6.

I am very proud to be part of the community at Leeds Trinity and to hold the post as their very first chancellor. I’m a firm believer in the importance of higher education and have been thoroughly inspired seeing the benefits an education at Leeds Trinity University can offer.

I’d like to wish the university, its staff, students and alumni, continued success for the future.
