Old habits die hard for early riser Sir Terry Wogan
Old habits die hard for Sir Terry Wogan - he still wakes up early despite hanging up his breakfast show headphones.
But instead of having to rush to work, the veteran broadcaster enjoys a couple of hours lying in bed.
Asked about his morning routine, Sir Terry did not mention tuning into Chris Evans - his replacement on the Radio 2 breakfast show.
He told the Radio Times: "I may wake round about six, but I don't get up. I lie and doze, this morning til nine."
The 71-year-old said his typical start to the day involves pounding the treadmill his wife bought him for Christmas.
"I get on that with my French conversation tapes, walk uphill for half an hour. I need to strengthen the muscles. I'm having a new knee - lost a cartilage 50 years ago and it's hard going downstairs," he said.
Last week it was revealed that Sir Terry bowed out of his Radio 2 show by matching his biggest-ever audience figures.
Sir Terry, who left on December 18 after 27 years, had an average of 8.1 million listeners a week in the final three months of 2009, making Wake Up To Wogan Europe's most popular breakfast programme.
Although some of Wogan's Togs - Terry's Old Geezers and Gals - complained, Evans received a warm response from reviewers after taking over the breakfast slot in January.
