JORDAN BANJO 'SET TO REPLACE GREGG WALLACE ON EAT WELL FOR LESS?'

The Greatest Dancer presenter Jordan Banjo is set to take over from Gregg Wallace as the co-host of BBC One's consumer series Eat Well For Less? when the show returns later this year.



Gregg Wallace revealed earlier in the year that he was stepping back from the show he presented with Chris Bavin to concentrate on other projects.


Ashely Banjo - the brother of Jordan and Dancing On Ice judge - reportedly turned down the role due to other commitments, and it now appears the BBC have gone for the next best thing, his brother.


A source told The Sun: “Ashley was gutted he couldn’t take on Eat Well For Less?, as it’s a massive show. But he told bosses about his brother Jordan and his amazing seven-stone weight loss. They got him in for a screen test and instantly loved him. He’ll be appearing on the show alongside co-host Chris Bavin when filming begins this spring.”


The BBC made no comment when approached.
