Strictly star set to replace Jordan Banjo on breakfast radio as Diversity star prepares to welcome baby | The Sun

JORDAN Banjo is set to take time away from his breakfast radio gig next month to welcome his third child.

But the Diversity and Kiss star's coveted morning slot, which he co-hosts with Perri Kiely, will be in safe hands during his absence.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun for Food Waste Action Week, Jordan said he expects Strictly Come Dancing's Tyler West to take over the reigns.

He said: "Of course, Kiss are aware. Normally when we're off Kiss Breakfast it's our boy Tyler West, who does the afternoons on Kiss. Obviously, he's just done Strictly, so he's a busy guy himself, so normally he fills in for us when we're off.

"Because me and Perri seem to do everything in life [together], when I take a bit of paternity leave I reckon Perri's gonna take it as well, like he's just had a baby.

"I assume it'll be Tyler, it's normally Tyler. He does an alright job, bless him, so we'll let him crack on."

Tyler and dance partner Diane Buswell finished 8th in the latest series of Strictly.

Alongside his radio work, Tyler has recently been presenting the entertainment news on ITV's Lorraine.

Meanwhile, soon-to-be dad-of-three Jordan recently underwent a vasectomy to stop his and wife Naomi's brood getting bigger.

The couple have son Cassius, four, and daughter Mayowa, three.

Jordan was seen limping out of the clinic after having the snip in a video filmed by his other half.

But he's no longer suffering any side effects of the minor surgery and will be fighting fit to tackle new dad duties next month.

Before then, he's turned his attention to helping Love Food Hate Waste shine a spotlight on the amount of produce we're wasting in our homes and the time we're losing out on by unnecessarily binning our leftovers.

On average people in the UK are losing the equivalent of two-and-a-half days a year preparing meals they needn't have, if only they'd re-used their leftovers.

A poll of 2,000 adults found the nation dedicates an average of five hours a week to preparing and cooking food, and a quarter of those surveyed believe they're wasting far too much food.

In a bid to stop this, Love Food Hate Waste has released its top tips for clawing back precious time.

These hacks are: store leftover portions safely, make your freezer your friend, defrost safely, cook a little extra for the next day. 

Jordan said of his involvement: "In the current climate there's not many things that are affecting people's daily lives more than money and time.

"In my house, me, my kids and wife, we're all big chicken eaters, so I focus on loads of dishes around that. If you can get some flavours going that you enjoy, there's so many dishes that can be made.

"It's just about being a bit better prepped. If you are making dinner, plan that little bit ahead.

"With my kids, food waste is my biggest drama. I'll be in the kitchen with my wife making a meal thinking 'this is going to be perfect'. You put it down in front of them and they go 'nah, you're alright,' but we all know the next day it'll be their favourite food. By saving that, the next day dinner's already prepped. I think being a dad has definitely helped me focus on things like that."
