Jonathan Ross is to return to a presenting role on Radio 2, six years after the Sachsgate scandal which led to him being suspended and leaving the BBC.

The presenter, who has since been given an ITV chat show, will be back on air on the station at the end of this month as he provides a week of holiday cover for Steve Wright's programme.

A station spokesman said it was a "one-off" and there were no plans for a permanent return.

Ross left the station mired in controversy when he appeared on his friend Russell Brand's show in 2008 and the pair were heard to leave lewd messages on the answerphone of veteran actor Andrew Sachs.
