Top of the Pops is set for a shake-up, with Jayne Middlemiss and Gail Porter no longer presenting the hit music show.

Lisa Snowdon is leading the new line up, with Sarah Cawood, Jamie Theakston and Richard Blackwood also appearing in front of the cameras.

Dermot O'Leary
Dermot is off as well
Another presenter to exit is Dermot O'Leary, although he will be kept busy working on the new series of Big Brother which starts later this month.

The producer of Top of the Pops, Michael Kelpie, told The Sun newspaper that the idea was to freshen up the people presenting the show.

New presenters auditioned too

He added that the show has been auditioning new presenters, and will reveal the new team in full soon, but confirmed Jayne and Gail weren't part of that team.
