BBC Radio1 have announced Vicky Hawkesworth and Dean McCullough as the hosts of brand-new daytime show to take over from Scott Mills and Chris Stark.

We are so proud of Vicky, who says: “In all honesty, I don’t think there are words that can live up to how incredibly excited I am. I am quite literally about to live my dream and I can’t wait to get going. I feel extremely honoured to be in this position, Scott and Chris are the best that radio has to offer, a phenomenal team that have kept me laughing and smiling over the years and it’s privilege to follow after them.”

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of BBC Radio 1, says: “I am so excited for Dean and Vicky. They are both highly engaging presenters who made me laugh so much in their company. They’re a testament to the success of our Christmas Takeover initiative and I’m thrilled it will enable them to bring a smile to the nation on daytime. It is also a very special moment for Radio 1, as it means we’ll be broadcasting from Salford seven days a week which is great.”
