It’s unreal that I have now taken on the show. I think our listeners will understand when we say we’ll be living our best lives - getting to chat to some our favourite celebs and playing the best new tunes every day. It’s a dream come true.”

Andy Roberts, group programme director for the KISS Network, said: “Tom and Daisy are the perfect new hosts for KISS Breakfast.

“They have a genuine connection to the things our audience love the most, as well as a unique ability to make everyone feel like their best mate – from your 15-year-old listener to the biggest Hollywood celeb.
