Kelly Brook is reunited with former co-host Johnny Vaughan as they leave Capital Radio…. 20-years after she quit The Big Breakfast

Fans of a certain age were reminded of Old Ford Lock on Monday evening as Kelly Brook reunited with former Big Breakfast co-host Johnny Vaughan in London.

The 40-year old spent six-months presenting Channel 4’s legendary live morning show at the Tower Hamlets venue alongside Vaughan in 1999 following the departure of his regular co-host, Denise Van Outen.

But they were back together and in high spirits as they departed Capital Radio Studios, some seventeen years after closing the doors at Old Ford Lock and Lock Keepers’ Cottages for the last time.

Opting for a black roll-neck sweater and cropped grey trousers, Kelly, 40, looked typically stylish as they posed for photos while making their way across Leicester Square. 

The presenter, who hosts an afternoon show on capital sister station Heart Radio, added to her look with a pair of white stiletto heels, while a black leather bomber jacket rounded things off. 

Joining his former colleague, Vaughan, 53, sported a quilted blue jacket and matching jeans.

Kelly was a 19-year old unknown when she was recruited to fill Denise Van Outen’s shoes on The Big Breakfast,. 

But six-months after being unveiled as Van Outen’s replacement in January 1999 she left the show, having failed to replicate her predecessor’s chemistry with the lively, opinionated Vaughan. 

The abrupt departure led to a host of stand-in presenters taking her place, with Liza Tarbuck, Lisa Rogers, Amanda Byram and the returning Van Outen all filling in alongside Vaughan before the show went off-air in 2002.

Speaking in February, Kelly admitted that her media career has been given a second chance by Capital Radio following various forays into acting, modelling and presenting. 

‘It’s been really lovely because I feel like I have been given another lifeline,’ she told Hello! 

‘You think: “Oh, that’s it, maybe I had my go and it’s someone else’s turn.” When an opportunity like this comes along, all of a sudden you’ve got another shot.’
