Sara however will still be providing holiday cover for Zöe, and is clearly looking on the bright side.
“Kicking off the show this morning with It Wasn’t Me,” Sara told listeners. “Congratulations to Zoë Ball, she is taking over of course from Chris Evans: she’s been given the plum role of my breakfast show holiday cover.
“So basically this is how it works. I’ve got the Breakfast Show, I just do ten weeks a year because I’m busy doing other stuff, and it is early. So I do ten weeks, and she’ll cover the other 42 weeks when I’m off on holiday sunning myself somewhere nice.
“So congratulations to Zoë, I’m absolutely thrilled for her, that’s very nice. I did know for a couple of weeks or so that Zoë had it, but I managed to keep it secret.”
I did get it! Zoe is just filling in for the 42 weeks I’m on holiday… thanks tho x
