Zoe Ball will be the new presenter of BBC Radio 2’s Breakfast Show.
Chris Evans revealed the news live on air.
“This is bonkers. I’m not underestimating the task ahead of me,” said Ball, revealing she “definitely didn’t expect to get the call” from Radio 2 bosses.
The star, 47, was the first female breakfast show host on Radio 1 and will now repeat the honour on Radio 2.
She will be the eighth person to host the UK’s most listened-to breakfast show.
