Sara Cox has admitted that Zoe Ball will be 'brilliant' in her new role as BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show host after it was suggested she was 'gutted' to lose out on the role.

The radio presenter, 44, who has often stood in for Chris Evans before he quit the job, was hotly-tipped to slip into his shoes following his departure.

However Sara confessed that she 'never expected' to be offered the job, during an interview with the Sun, because the stand-in never gets given the job, she claimed.

Referencing claims that she and Zoe had 'drifted apart', Sara said: 'We drifted insomuch as Zoë lives in Brighton and I live in north London, and even my friends who I could throw a stone from my front doorstep and hit their house I don't b****y see for weeks.'

'So there's nothing gone wrong – there's definitely never been a cross word with me and Zoë – but you've got to nurture friendships. We're both busy and we've both got kids, and if you don't put the time in with friendships then they do fade a little bit.

'But the roots are still there. It's still there at its core. In the middle of the night I would drop everything and do anything that Zoë needed from me. She will always be a friend, but she's got her best friends and I've got mine.'
