Matt Baker is to sign off as co-host of BBC One’s The One Show after nine years on Tuesday – and will do so from home because he is still in quarantine.
Baker is at the end of two weeks of quarantine after a family member showed coronavirus symptoms.
The BBC has said it does not plan to recruit a replacement.
“We are drawing on our existing family of presenters – made up of men and women – to present alongside Alex Jones,” a spokeswoman said.
Those standing in for Baker recently have included Patrick Kielty, Amol Rajan and Chris Ramsey.
Baker joined The One Show on a permanent basis in 2011, months after coming second in 2010’s Strictly Come Dancing. The former Blue Peter host will continue to present the Countryfile and sports coverage.
