Where is Jamie Theakston now?

Jamie Theakston is "not well" and is thought to be at home resting as fellow radio presenter Jason 'JK' King announced on Wednesday's show, “I’m in for Jamie Theakston, he’s not too well" as he took up his seat in the London-based radio studio alongside Amanda Holden.

Just days ago Jamie uploaded a clip to his Instagram of him showing off his skiing skills on the slopes of Les Gets in France. But it looks like he's fallen ill after being on holiday over the half-term.

Jamie and fellow celebrity Amanda celebrated getting 3.9 million listeners each week to their breakfast radio show and Jamie thanked listeners, he wrote, "Thank you for your company! @thisisheart @noholdenback @global #Rajar"

Jason King is covering for Jamie and is likely to be on the show until he returns. JK normally hosts a show alongside Kelly Brook.

Jamie's co-host, Amanda Holden told listeners, "Jamie's under the weather" before she told Jamie, should he be listening, "Get well soon darling!"
