Heart FM breakfast show presenter Amanda Holden has handed the microphone over to none other than telly fave Davina McCall.

That’s right, Amanda Holden has been replaced by Davina McCall… temporarily.

Amanda is embarking on a trip to Mallorca to film a new Netflix gig. Although she didn’t confirm which show she’s filming, Amanda is expected to appear on a new reality TV show with Simon Cowell. However, the programme was set to be filmed in the US.

Rest assured though, the Britain’s Got Talent judge has left her radio role in safe hands.
