Emma Bunton’s Heart Breakfast Show replacement chosen – and it’s a big name

Amanda Holden has landed the Heart Breakfast Show presenting job alongside Jamie Theakston, the Mirror can reveal.

A radio source said: “Amanda was their number one choice. She is warm, funny and, of course, watched and loved by millions on Britain’s Got Talent. ”

Amanda will fill the vacancy left by Emma Bunton who is stepping down from her breakfast show role after five years.

As well as Britain’s Got Talent, Amanda has presented This Morning and last week revealed she was a team captain on Celebrity Juice.

The BGT judge has recently returned to the ITV talent competition and revealed she would never “voluntarily leave” the show, which she joined in 2007.

She said: “Simon’s already discussing next year and has said he wants us all back but you never know.”

Bunton still presents her weekly Sunday show on Heart.

Announcing her decision to leave last December, Bunton said: “I can truthfully say that I’ve laughed my head off every single day.

"It’s with a heavy heart that I say farewell to Heart Breakfast listeners, but I’m hoping some of them will be able to join me for my Sunday show.”
