Kirsty was born in Edinburgh, but her family moved to Surrey not long after, where her father golfer and former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher, was a professional at Wentworth Golf Club. Kirsty started working at Sky as a production and editorial assistant before moving in front of the camera in 1998 as a presenter on Sky Sports News, and was nominated in the Best Newcomer category at the Royal Television Society Television Sports Awards. She has gone on to a variety of presenting work, including Channel 4's breakfast programme RI:SE and a reality show The Games, as well as the four series of Sky's Kirsty's Home Videos, and the first series of a new version of the game show Gladiators.
Kirsty will be competing with Brendan Cole in the thirteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing.
