The star revealed it was her last day in the studio before she welcomes her baby.

She said that an I’m A Celebrity star will be filling in for her on the show.

She said: “I know the showbiz needs to be left in good hands and somebody that deals with showbiz stories every morning and actually works alongside me most mornings when I am doing the radio… This is the handover of all handovers!

“I really think this is the perfect guy for the job, I work with him every morning and he’s fantastic. It is Jordan North everybody!”

Jordan then entered the studio as everyone clapped and cheered. He said: “I’m just the supply teacher for the summer.”

Recently, Sian announced the sex of her unborn baby. Sian is a presenter on Capital FM’s breakfast show alongside Jordan and Chris Stark. She shared the exciting news on the show earlier this month.

She said: “Before I go off on baby leave I’ve decided I want to share one more thing with everyone.

“We are a family. And I have told my nearest and dearest what me and Jake are having because we did find out the sex… So I’ve decided as a huge thank you to all of you that have been on this journey with me, I’m gonna tell you what I’m having.”
