Victoria, 33, says: "Teresa is a very hard act to follow but I feel honoured to join such a professional team.
"I've grown to love the South West over the last three years, it's a fantastic area in which to live and work.
"And after so long in 'bed and breakfasts' I am really looking forward to finding a permanent home with my dog, Grizzle!"
GOING FOR GOLD
Victoria began her broadcasting career at the BBC in the Weather Centre having trained as a producer and director at Yorkshire Television in Leeds.
