BBC newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky is to swap her early morning Breakfast shift for BBC One's Six O'Clock News while Sophie Raworth is on maternity leave.

It is the second time she has followed in Raworth's footsteps, having taken over from her on Breakfast in 2002.

"Natasha brings considerable broadcast and journalistic experience to the team," said Six O'Clock News editor Amanda Farnsworth.

Sian Williams and Mishal Husain will replace Kaplinsky on Breakfast.

Their co-hosts will be Dermot Murnaghan and Bill Turnbull.

Ms Farnsworth added that Kaplinsky would be "a very valuable addition to the Six while Sophie is away on maternity leave".

Kaplinsky will team up with George Alagiah to present the evening bulletin.
