Denise Van Outen has revealed how she and Chris Evans would love a Big Breakfast reunion.
To be honest, so would we.
The actress, who co-hosted the weekday morning with Johnny Vaughan, explained that she had recently been talking about a potential reboot with the DJ.
Speaking about the one-off special, which will be held next year, Denise said that while none of the original presenters have been asked to go back, she hasn’t ruled out a revival.
‘None of the originals have been asked to go back,’ She told The Sun on Sunday.
‘I saw Chris Evans the other day and we were having a chat about how cool it would be.’
The Big Breakfast first launched in 1992, with Chris and Gaby Roslin being the show’s first-ever presenters. It quickly became the highest-rated breakfast TV show in the UK and saw 2million viewers tuning in each episode.
Chris quit the show in 1994, with Gabby following in 1996, with Keith Chegwin and Zoe Ball taking over the reins together the same year.
The much-loved show saw a whole host of changing presenters until it came off air in 2002, with Johnny running the ship between 1997 and 2001.
He was famed for presenting alongside Denise who joined him on-screen between 1997 and 1998 and 2000 and 2001.
The final episode of The Big Breakfast aired in March 2002.
In 2021, the one-off special episode will be hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan.
The popular show is being revived by Channel 4 as part of its newly-announced Black Takeover day, which the broadcaster has said is part of its ‘ongoing commitment as an anti-racist organisation to improve Black representation on and off-screen and drive long-term change.’
‘Like so many of us, I loved The Big Breakfast and I am so grateful to be asked to host this special event, particularly as part of such a hugely thrilling and history-making day for British television,’ Mo explained.
The live special will see Mo joined by other Black talent and emerging stars.
