We are delighted to announce Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden will be the new hosts of the brand new national Heart Breakfast Show.

Amanda, who is one of the UK’s most loved presenters, currently starring in Britain’s Got Talent on ITV, will join Jamie for the programme when it launches on Monday June 3rd.

Speaking of her excitement, Amanda said: “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!”
