Heart revealed on their website
Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden as the new hosts of the national Heart Breakfast Show, which will launch on Monday June 3rd 2019.
Amanda, mostly known for being a judge on ITV's Britain's Got Talent,
will be taking the presenting roll alongside Jamie. Amanda explained her excitement: “I’ve spent years in the car listening to Heart while travelling to work or doing the school run with my daughters. So it feels incredibly surreal to be announced as the new national Breakfast co-presenter alongside the fab Jamie Theakston."
Jamie and I go back more years than I can remember so I have no doubt that working with him will be hilarious for everyone. I’m not sure my face is ready for the early starts mind you, but I hope we can make the listeners laugh along with us each morning!”
Co-presenter Jamie said: “This is a massively exciting opportunity in taking this show nationwide and I’m beyond thrilled to have my friend Amanda join me in the fun. Listeners can expect the unexpected from Amanda, just as I have learned to do over the years!”
The new Heart Breakfast Show will also introduce a 'showbiz news and gossip' section which will be hosted by former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts.
As the first national breakfast show for Heart, it marks a historic moment for the company and listeners can expect the same feel good music, star interviews and big competitions.
Managing Editor of Heart, James Rea said: “We have been working hard behind the scenes to be able to announce some huge changes to Heart, which we’re thrilled to reveal today. Amanda Holden brings a fresh energy to the brand-new national Breakfast Show and we’re delighted that she’s now part of the Heart family. Both Jamie & Amanda’s infectious humour and engaging personalities will certainly brighten up mornings across the UK! We wish them the very best of luck ahead of their first show together on Monday June 3rd. Turn up the feel good indeed!”
The show will be available on weekdays from 6:30 - 10am from Monday 3rd June 2019.
