    Wishing his predecessor all the best, he added: "I wish Zoe every success as the station's new Breakfast Show host and I'm sure she's going to be as brilliant as she always has been.

    "I can't wait to get started and look forward to being in the studio from the New Year."

    Lewis Carnie, Head of Radio 2, commented: "I'm delighted that Rylan can join Radio 2 and we will give him a warm welcome in his new presenting role. Our listeners can expect a wonderful mix of fun and Rylan's inimitable style on Saturday afternoons."
