Former DJ will make comeback with weekly show

Chris Tarrant is to make a radio comeback.

The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? presenter has been wooed back to radio by his former Capital Radio producer Sarah Jane Eddon.

Sarah, 38, runs a production firm and signed the star up this week over lunch at London restaurant The Ivy.

Chris hosted Capital FM’s Breakfast Show for 17 years and left the station in 2004. Freelance producer Sarah persuaded the 60-year-old to host the new weekly show as she believes listeners love him.

The BBC is vying for rights to the programme with independent stations.

A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Sarah and Chris have been mates for years and she has been badgering him to do more on the radio. Chris would only work with the best in the business and she’s the best.’
