A source said: "Gabby is one of the top names on the list this year and is likely to get an OBE or CBE. "The list is being kept secret so not many people know about his yet. "But she is being recognised mainly for her TV work, as she has helped remove the glass ceiling for women in the male-dominated world of sport. 'SHEER HARD WORK AND PROFESSIONALISM' "Gabby has worked for Sky, the BBC and ITV - and paved the way for the current crop of female sports presenters and pundits. "She has done it through sheer hard work and professionalism and has also never been scared to speak out on big issues. "This year's Honours will be quite sport heavy as it has been a great year for British sports but Gabby is one of the top celebrities on the list – and rightly so." Gabby – Mum of twins with her ex Scotland rugby star husband Kenny Logan – shot to fame as a presenter on Sky Sports from 1996-1998. She then moved over to ITV, where she presented several Champions League finals including Liverpool's win over AC Milan in 2005. Gabby started presenting for the BBC in 2007, and appeared on Strictly Come Dancing that year. She is now the main face of athletics for the Beeb and regularly hosts its London Marathon coverage. Gabby also co-hosts Amazon Prime football show Back of the Net, with Peter Crouch and John Bishop. In a 2013 interview, Gabby slammed Sky Sports for using glamorous women as "window dressing". And – speaking ahead of Sunday's SPOTY, which she will front with Gary Lineker and Clare Balding – Gabby hit out at racism in football. She said: "It has to be called out, every single time. You think of racism in football in seventies and eighties and you would have thought we had gone past that now. And, speaking about women in sport, she added: "We have seen such a massive sea change in women's football and rugby and other sports over recent years. "I think London 2012 was a huge time for women's sport in this country because on a whole women did better at winning medals than the men. "Women sport stars became household names and opened the door. "There is always work to do and no one is resting on their laurels." Gabby – a Newcastle United fan – is patron of The Prince's Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Disabilities Trust and the Newcastle United Foundation. 5 Gabby is now the main face of athletics for the Beeb and regularly hosts its London Marathon coverage Credit: PA:Press Association 5 In a 2013 interview, Gabby slammed Sky Sports for using glamorous women as 'window dressing' Credit: Getty Images - Getty 5 Gabby is patron of The Prince's Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Disabilities Trust and the Newcastle United Foundation Credit: Getty - Contributor
