According to The Mirror, Davina McCall, Phil and Kristie from Location, Location… and Vernon Kay have all had live auditions to take over the dinner time chatfest.

An insider told The Mirror, “We plan to have eight to 10 presenters for a week each in spring. Then we’ll decide whether to give the gig to one or carry on with rotating names. It’s a bit like staging live auditions.”

We’re a little worried about the prospect of Davina getting a teatime slot, she can be a bit naughty that Davina, and her last chat show attempt fell flat on it’s face. But with Big Brother coming to a swift end, she’ll need to broaden her televisual horizons.

Vernon’s probably the safe bet; he’s friendly, Northern and has a good track record. It’ll be an easy transition for fans from Paul to Vernon but while he may be a safe choice, we’re hoping someone with an actual personality gets the job.
