This latest public statement quickly followed the intense speculation that Zoe Ball was being eyed for the job, with media reports claiming that the It Takes Two host had even been offered a contract by the BBC.

Chris Evans' decision to leave the station's flagship radio show earlier this month has led to the BBC's ongoing search for his replacement, with the corporation today (17 September) insisting that they still haven't settled on their pick for the hot seat.

Coincidentally (or, at least, we presume it was a coincidence), Monday's Radio 2 breakfast show also featured an interview with Zoe's ex-husband, Norman Cook, who remained tight-lipped over the rumours. If Zoe refuses, it will be offered to Sara Cox.

'If Zoe turns it down it will be offered to Sara, guaranteeing there will be a female hosting our flagship radio show for the first time'.

And Zoe Ball has been tipped as his successor, with The Sun reporting on Sunday that she is in "advanced negotiations" to take over the role. A contract hasn't been signed and her new pay hasn't yet been agreed.

Yogurts deceptively high in sugar, study finds
Organic yogurts fare second worst, with 13.1g of sugar per 100g, and natural or Greek yogurts are best with 5g of sugar per 100g. So unless it's using artificial sweeteners, if your yogurt tastes sweet, it's probably because there's sugar in it.

'We haven't made a decision and we'll make an announcement when we have'. As Chris stated, he wants to seek new challenges after 13 years at the BBC, and we wish him well'.

Zoe now hosts BBC Radio 2's Saturday afternoon slot, and the move would see her receive a significant pay rise.

Ball, 47, is the BBC's "number one choice" to replace Chris Evans as host of the most listened-to radio show in Britain, according to a report in The Sun newspaper.

It is unclear how much Ball is set to earn, but Chris Evans annual BBC package was reportedly £1.6 million.

But his salary this year was down on the £2.2million he was paid in the year to April 2017, because he had hosted the newly revamped Top Gear before quitting after one series because of plunging ratings. Ball now lives in Brighton with her two children, and is reportedly trying to make arrangements so that she can balance the new role with her family life and commitments.
