Vernon Kay

Your Saturday morning show and your Sunday Lie-In are presented by Vernon every week from 10am-1pm.

His first taste of fame was a few years ago when he was spotted by a model scout from Select at the BBC's Clothes Show Live.

It wasn't long into his successful modelling career before Vernon was picked out for stardom by Channel 4 when he won Model Of The Week on The Big Breakfast.

He's also got a successful sideline going as part of the T4 team on Channel 4 - hosting live events like T In The Park and the Saturday night TV show Boys And Girls.

Vernon is married to TV presenter Tess Daly and they both fronted reality singing competition Just The Two Of Us. The two of them have a daughter Phoebe.

You may also recognise him from his days co-presenting Channel 5's live magazine format The Mag and reporting for Trouble Television.

The music:
A lot of you have been enquiring about the classical piece of music Vernon plays at the beginning of his Saturday morning show. It's called Carmina Burana and it's by a German composer called Carl Orff.
