Last Radio 2 Saturday show for Zoe Ball

Zoe Ball has announced that this weekend’s Saturday breakfast show on Radio 2 was her last.

It’s understood she’ll continue to do cover work for the station but won’t have a regular weekly slot.

Zoe told listeners she was departing the 6-8am Saturday programme to spend more time with her children. Husband Norman Cook – aka Fatboy Slim – is going on tour this year.

The ex-Radio 1 breakfast presenter has been doing the show since June 2009, but had a break when she gave birth to her second child in January 2010.



Recently she’s been the regular cover presenter for Ken Bruce’s weekday mid-morning show on Radio 2 and it’s thought will continue to do that.

Zoe told her listeners this Saturday: “You have been such splendid company, but after three glorious years of early rising my other family – my three ­monkeys at home – have decided they’d quite like me to themselves at weekends.”

After the show Zoe tweeted: “Thank you splendid bunch of #BarkingLarkers for your fine company on Saturday mornings. I will miss y’all!”

Lynn Parsons is covering the show for the next few weeks with an announcement due soon about who’ll take over permanently. Last year, singer Charlotte Church stood in for Zoe a few times.
