Fans are still missing the Heart North West Breakfast show duo.

Joel and Lorna will no longer be brightening up fans' mornings, but what happened to the Heart North West duo? Joel Ross and Lorna Bancroft have been delighting Manchester listeners with their fabulous morning show for ages now, but it seems all good things must end. 

For the past five years, the pair's great chemistry has been entertaining North West admirers on their morning commute, so it came as a great shock to hear of their sudden replacements. Who has taken over?

Who replaced them?

Joel and Lorna bid their farewells to the show and their adorings fans on Friday, May 24th 2019. It was an emotional last show, and it's surely going to be difficult to sway audiences in their demands to see them return. 

As reported by I Love Manchester, Global Radio - the owners of Heart - have made some significant alterations to their local UK stations. A new, national show began airing on Monday, 3rd June instead.

Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden later helmed the show alongside Jamie Theakston, who has appeared on Top of the Pops, Traffic Cops and more. 


What do the fans think?

As you may have guessed, Joel and Lorna's fans are mortified about the cancellation of their show. After tuning in for so many years, some feel that a huge part of their morning routine has been ripped away. 

Check out some of these tweets from fans expressing their annoyance:



What are they doing now?

Unfortunately, neither Joel or Lorna have confirmed plans for the next step in their careers. 

However, when someone wrote to Joel on Twitter jokingly: "Think its time you got a job now," he replied back "JANUARY !!! Can’t say anything yet cos I still want to be paid to sit on my arse and do nothing until then."

So, while it's mysterious, there's something on the way for January - let's hope Lorna is on board too! Perhaps news of something new will come then, or even better, the thing itself!
