Jonathan Ross is to return to Radio 2, six years after the Sachsgate scandal which led to him being suspended from air and eventually leaving the BBC.
The presenter, who has since hosted The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV, left the station when he appeared on Russell Brand's show in 1998 and the pair were heard to leave lewd messages on actor Andrew Sachs' answerphone.
Ross will be back on air at the end of this month for a "one-off stint" of holiday cover for Steve Wright.
"There are no plans to bring him back permanently," a station spokesman said.
"Jonathan is an experienced and talented broadcaster who presented on Radio 2 for 10 years and was very popular with our audience," the BBC spokesman added.
