Global Radio yesterday announced that Emma Bunton will replace Harriet Scott as co-host of the breakfast show on the London version of Heart FM.

The Spice Girl has presented a weekend show across the Heart network since 2009, and has filled in as co-host with Jamie Theakston on the London station’s breakfast show during that time. She replaces Harriet Scott, who announced she was departing the prime time programme last month.

Confirming her new job, Bunton told reporters: “I am so excited to be joining Heart Breakfast! Jamie and I have known each other for years so it’ll be great spending each morning with him chatting, laughing and playing great music. We are looking forward to sharing the fun with everyone!”

Meanwhile Global Radio’s Director Of Broadcasting Richard Park said: “We are thrilled that Emma is bringing girl power to Heart Breakfast. Jamie and Emma have been friends for a long time and have a great natural chemistry that Londoners are going to love”.

Bunton will also continue to present a weekend show that airs on Heart stations around the UK. Meanwhile, a replacement for London drive time on Heart is still to be announced, current host Neil Bentley announced plans to depart at the same time as Scott last month.
