Where The Big Breakfast’s Stars Are Now – From Selling Houses In The US To Terrifying Brush With Death

LAST month, it was announced that the much-anticipated Big Breakfast reboot will be hosted by AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan on Channel 4.

The broadcaster is reviving the show as part of their Black to Front campaign, which will see "Black talent and featuring Black contributors, to champion Black voices and stories."

However, Mo and AJ are just the latest in a long line of stars to be at the helm of the anarchic entertainment show, which originally ran for two hours every weekday morning between 1992 to 2002.

Here we take a look back at what happened to past Big Breakfast favourites - with the presenters going on to do anything from selling houses in the US, to surviving terrifying brushes with death.

Chris Evans and Gaby Roslin were the original The Big Breakfast hosts, with both going on to enjoy lucrative careers.

After leaving the morning programme in 1994, Chris remained the golden boy of Channel 4 and landed gigs such as TFI Friday, and Don't Forget Your Toothbrush.

He then turned his attention to the airwaves, hosting Radio 1's Breakfast Show, before joining Virgin Radio in 1997.

In 2015, Chris was announced as the new host of Top Gear, which he fronted until 2017.

In 2019, almost 20 years after he left Virgin Radio, Chris returned to host the station's Breakfast Show.

Meanwhile, Gaby remained on the Big Breakfast until 1996, co-hosting with Mark Little after Chris' departure.

She has had a glittering TV career ever since, teaming up with Terry Wogan for Children in Need several times over the years, and the pair even fronting The Terry and Gaby show in 2003.

Gaby now has a popular self-titled podcast, which has seen her interview huge names including Dame Judy Dench.

Zoe Ball took over from Gaby when she left TBB, but only presented the programme alongside Mark Little for a year before jumping ship to the BBC for Live & Kicking with Jamie Theakston.

She and Jamie then landed a short-lived night-time music show called The Priory, with Zoe enjoying radio success too.

In 2005, the bubbly presenter landed third place in Strictly Come Dancing, and more recently she joined Radio 2's Breakfast Show in January 2019.
