Vaughan left Capital abruptly last month after nearly eight years on the show.

Berry, who currently presents Capital’s weekend breakfast show, will join co-presenter Lisa Snowdon on the weekday show starting in January.

Before moving to Capital, Berry hosted a breakfast show on its sister station, XFM, and has presented Channel 4’s youth strand, T4.

Berry said of the announcement: “To be given the opportunity to wake up London every weekday morning is a dream come true on so many levels.

“I have an absolute passion for radio, I love this city and, of course, it’s no bad thing working alongside the gorgeous Lisa Snowdon. Bring it on.”

Richard Park, director of broadcasting for Capital’s parent company, Global, said: “Dave Berry is a massive radio talent, and has already proved himself a huge hit with Capital listeners.

“I am convinced that the chemistry between him and Lisa Snowdon will make for great radio and that the show will become a must-listen for London every weekday morning.”
