Kirsty Jane Gallacher (born January 20, 1976 in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom) is a Scottish television presenter. She began her television career as a presenter on Sky Sports News.
The daughter of the former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher, Kirsty Gallacher graduated from the London College of Fashion, and began work as a production assistant before moving on to the position of editorial assistant on Sky Sports.
She got her presenting break on Sky Sports News, and since then has been associated with many other sports shows such as 90 Minutes, Soccer Extra, Kirsty and Phil (on BBC Radio 5 Live) and Soccer AM.

She has made guest appearances on They Think It`s All Over and A Question of Sport, and she is a regular guest on Ant & Dec`s Saturday Night Takeaway.
In 2004 it was alleged that she had performed a 3-in-a-bed romp with a female friend and a professional footballer, Stan Collymore. In Collymore`s auto-biography he wrote `She did things with chocolate fingers that have stopped me looking at them in the same way since`. Gallacher later denied the claims and considered legal action.
5` 5" tall and renowned for her voluptuous figure (although she has stated that she wishes her bust was smaller), she was a cover girl on the February 2001 issue of Maxim, and was a cover girl for FHM. She has often posed for photographs dressed only in lingerie, including customised brassieres and panties. She has appeared regularly in FHM`s annual `Sexiest Women` poll.
Gallacher is currently presenting the new UK Gladiators on Sky One alongside Ian Wright.
In 2005, Gallacher won the gold medal in the third series of the popular Channel 4 reality TV series, The Games. On December 26, 2005 she released a DVD "Body Sculpt With Kirsty Gallacher" in which she shows a variety of workouts. In 2006 she co-presented the fourth series of The Games alongside Jamie Theakston. She has also presented her own show on BBC Radio 5 Live. In July 2006, she co-presented the BBC reality TV show Only Fools on Horses.
Gallacher and her boyfriend Paul Sampson celebrated the birth of their first child, Oscar, in December 2006. Her father`s close friendship with Kenny Dalglish secured her as a lifelong Liverpool F.C. supporter.
