Breakfast show, replacing Paul Henry and Pippa Wetzell.' />

Petra Bagust and Corin Dann will be the new hosts of TVNZ's Breakfast show, replacing Paul Henry and Pippa Wetzell.

Dann has been filling in on the show as a frontman since Henry resigned in October and Bagust will replace Wetzell, who is going on maternity leave after today's final show for the year.

The worst kept secret in television was confirmed during a live broadcast of Breakfast's final show of the year this morning.

The move marks the end of a 14-year relationship between Bagust and TV3. She first found national fame as co-host of the network's Ice TV in 1996.

TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs Anthony Flannery thinks the pairing of Petra (38) and Corin (36) has great potential.

"Their skills and backgrounds are vastly different but very complementary - the ingredients for making great television are definitely there."

Breakfast returns on Monday January 17th, with Tamati Coffey doing weather and Peter Williams presenting news.
