Her friend Jo Whiley was subjected to a torrent of vile online abuse after she joined Radio 2’s Drivetime show but Ball, 48, said she is ‘incredibly excited’ to be replacing Chris Evans. 

She also hosted the Radio 1 Breakfast Show but said it feels like her whole career has been preparing for her new job, for which she is reportedly being paid £1.2million.

Ball has been probing broadcasters such as Jeremy Vine on their morning routines so she can get through her three-hour show, which starts at 6.30am.

Miss Ball says she plans to snack on fruit to keep up her energy levels.
