    Jon Kay is taking on a brand new job away from BBC Breakfast.

    The morning TV favourite is usually seen on air on weekdays alongside his co-star Sally Nugent, and while his role will continue during the week, he's also taking on another gig.

    Jon confirmed the news on X that he will now be appearing on BBC Saturday Live for six weeks.

    He wrote on the social media platform: "Good morning. Well, this is a treat for me… presenting #BBCSaturdayLive with the brilliant Nikki Bedi on BBC Radio 4 for the next six weeks."

    He added: "Joining us 9-10am Jon Culshaw and Tommy Jessop, sewing surgeon Asmaa Al-allak, Molly Lemon and Heartstopper Alice Oseman. Please join us."

    His followers were quick to share their excitement over his new gig, with one person writing: "A treat for us too!", while another said: "Can't wait!"

    Away from his new gig, Jon returned to the BBC Breakfast sofa this week alongside Rachel Burden while Sally is away on holiday.

    It follows a show shake-up to kick off the week as Jon confirmed that he and Rachel would be moving over to BBC Two on Monday to make way for the Women's World cup on BBC One.

    He gave his followers a heads up on Twitter, writing: "We've moved over to BBC Two making way for the WWC football on BBC One – but we'll still have updates on the Lionesses (and much more) on BBC Breakfast."

    The pair continued to discuss the Lionesses on BBC Breakfast on Tuesday morning (August 8) as Rachel claimed the team didn't deserve the win.

    She said: "To be fair, they didn't even really deserve to be in that position, Nigeria were the better team.

    "When they went down to 10 women, they kind of dealt with that. So I guess this is their reward."

    England's team successfully won their match and will now go to the quarter finals in Australia.

    BBC Breakfast continues weekdays from 6am.
