Zoe Ball will take the reigns on the Radio 2 breakfast show this morning after Chris Evan spent eight years at the helm. Zoe and her colleague Sara were both reported to be in the running for the role. But Zoe has insisted the pair are on good terms and spoke throughout the whole application process. “We spoke a lot during the whole process,” Zoe told Radio Times.

She continued: “We’re old buddies and we’ve always been really supportive of each other.

“Sometimes she gets jobs I’ve wanted. We always talk. It worked out.”

But while the pair are supportive, Zoe explained she and Sara aren’t as close as they once were.

“We don’t see each other a huge amount any more,” she said.

The It Takes Two presenter and Sara have spoken about how much has changed over the years though.

“We were reminiscing about the first time round, when sometimes we didn’t sleep at all,” Zoe commented.

“It’s so different now. We need eight hours or we’re really grumpy.

“Or seven with an afternoon nap. But you know, she’s up there [Cox lives in London], I’m down here in Sussex.

“We don’t have a social life any more. But professionally, work-wise, we’ve always supported each other.”

Zoe continued: “We start on the same day, which is wonderful.

“We are going to ring each other before to try to keep calm. She’s an amazing broadcaster.”

Zoe recently told the BBC she felt it had worked out “brilliantly” for bother herself and Sara.

“I think it’s because Sara has been Chris’ stand-in, and I love Sara, and so it’s actually all turned out so brilliantly,” Zoe commented.

“She starts her new Drivetime show on Monday.

“And it’s also nice not being the only new girl. I mean, I’m not a new girl, I’ve been at Radio 2 for years, but in that new role.”

BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show airs on Radio 2 weekdays at 6am.
