Richard and Chrissie?

Published: Today

ADRIAN Chiles' decision to vacate his spot on The One Show sofa has sparked a Battle of the Richards.

In the frame ... Richard Hammond

Both Richard Hammond AND Richard Madeley are now in the frame to take over as presenter.

The Sun told how Top Gear star Hamster was in pole position for the £750,000-a-year job after Adrian announced he was flouncing off to ITV.

But former chat show king Madeley has started talks with Beeb bosses to present the hit series with Christine Bleakley.

Our spy at the BBC revealed: "Hammond is still being talked about as a solid pair of hands.


"But Richard Madeley is also another strong candidate. He's been off the box for a while and is looking for a decent comeback gig.

"There have been informal discussions and Richard's keen as it's a great slot.

"He's an old live TV pro so it would make sense. And it's good exposure for him as Christine is becoming a real hot property."

Madeley, 53, wants to make a telly comeback after being off the box since last summer when the digital TV chat show he presented with wife Judy Finnigan was axed.

Judy - eight years older than her husband - has now pretty much retired from the spotlight to write her first novel.

Richard was given a boost after being profiled for ITV's Piers Morgan's Life Stories last year.


He went on to film a yet-to-be screened ITV reality show called All At Sea in which he and other celebs sail along the South Coast.

Beeb chiefs will be left without a full-time co-presenter for Christine, 31, after Adrian - who famously grew a beard on the show - bows out on Friday.

Rogue Traders' Matt Allwright will take over for the next two weeks - except on Thursdays when he will do Watchdog.

Have I Got News For You veteran funnyman Paul Merton is set to stand in next Thursday.
