Where Big Breakfast stars are now – from royal romance to arrest scandal, booze battle & terrifying brush with death

W

ITS one-off reboot was a resounding success last year, and now The Big Breakfast is back to liven up our summer Saturday mornings.

Strictly star AJ Odudu and comedian Mo Gilligan are hosting four episodes of the Channel 4 show, which kicks off this weekend.

We revealed yesterday they’ll be joined by show legend Denise Van Outen, who will officially hand over the reins.

The anarchic entertainment show originally ran for two hours every weekday morning between 1992 to 2002.

Here we take a look back at what happened to the original TBB presenters – from selling houses in the US, to surviving terrifying brushes with death.

Chris Evans and Gaby Roslin were the original TBB 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. He married Billie Piper in 2001, but they split in 2004.

In 2015 Chris, 56, 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, 58, remained on TBB 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, with 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 Judi Dench.

She has two daughters – Libbi-Jack from her first marriage to musician Colin Peel, and Amelie whom she shares with husband David Osmon.
