The former ITV This Morning host confirmed he will join next year after ­sitting in for other ­presenters including Chris Evans, Simon Mayo and Zoe Ball.

Richard, 63, in Florida with wife Judy Finnigan for the BBC1 show Who Do You Think You Are?, told a fan on Twitter: “Filling in again in January and should have my own weekly live programme next year.”

When the BBC announce it, then it's news, at the moment, it's a twitter rumour, and not a very good one at that. Who needs wiki-leaks Rolling Eyes

There's also a rumour circulating that he's in line for the vacancy at The One Show.

He and Chris could job-share both ends of the day! Laughing

Matt Baker seems to be the front-runner at the moment - again, according to "rumour".

I see The People is living up to its reputation for high-standard journalism as always. Madeley is claimed to be 63 years of age. That's impossible - he's younger than I am so that instantly advances my age somewhat.

Another example of useless reporting from a useless rag.

I thought he was younger than that - I would guess about 56?

Just searched and he's 54 Surprised

Didn't we hear the same news about him getting a show on R2 in 2011 several weeks ago? I immediately thought the age was wrong. Maybe Judy, but I've no idea of her age.

I know Madeley can be a bit Partridge but I'd rather have him doing a weekly show than Jo Whiley or Alan Carr. He seems a bit more in tune with the average Radio 2 listener.

Hmm, I recall hearing he let slip something about it.

A bit of a damning indictment - he's not as bad as some of the rubbish Radio 2 broadcast.

The BBC may be dumbing down, but for me it's not dumb enough!

Madeley is arrogant announcing already that he has secured a permanent gig on Radio 2 in 2011.

Sums him up really.
