Fearne Cotton And Martin Kemp To Host BBC Radio 2 Summer Show

Fearne Cotton and Martin Kemp will be hosting a new live show on BBC Radio 2 this summer.

Fearne, who presented the mid-morning show on Radio 1 until May 2015, and Martin will be on our airwaves while Graham Norton takes his summer break, hosting their show from Saturday July 9 until Saturday September 10.

Listeners are said to get ready for a ‘lively show of banter, good music and top guests’, with a look back at the week’s ‘more offbeat’ news stories and two celebrity guests each week.

There will also be a ‘Meet Their Hero’ feature during the interactive show, with viewers given the opportunity to ask their idol a question live on air via the phone.

Not only that, but there’ll be an occasional treat in the form of a live acoustic performance, and a classic vintage album of the week every week, with the hosts playing three tracks of their choosing from that album.

Speaking about the new show, Fearne said: “I can’t wait to get back on the radio, so to be presenting on Radio 2 this summer on Saturday mornings with Martin Kemp is going to be absolutely brilliant.”

Martin added: “Radio 2, Fearne Cotton, every Saturday through the summer! When they asked me to work with Radio 2 I never expected this!

“It’s gonna be a great way to spend my Saturday mornings… chatting to great guests, some fun and games and playing my favourite tracks with one of the most experienced radio DJs out there! Now things are really warming up… Roll on the summer!”

We’ll be tuning in!
