Example is set to host his own radio show, after landing a slot on Capital FM.

The 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Elliot Gleave, will take over the Saturday night show from 7pm to 10pm from February 15 on the UK station.

"To host my own show, and have the chance to play some of the freshest dance tracks to Capital's listeners across the country, goes even further in cementing the great relationship we already have. I can't wait to get stuck in!" he said.

"Capital has championed my music from the early days, and over the years it's been a real pleasure to be part of their Jingle Bell and Summertime Balls as well as numerous appearances on the breakfast show."

Robert D'Ovidio from Capital added: "We're huge fans of Example at Capital so it gives me great pleasure to add him to our stellar line-up. Our audience are big fans of Example so this was a perfect fit."

Example, who got married to Australian model Erin McNaught last May, has enjoyed chart success with number one hits Changed The Way You Kiss Me and Stay Awake, as well as his collaborations with Wretch 32 on Unorthodox and Calvin Harris on We'll Be Coming Back.

His new single Kids Again will be released on March 16, and is the lead track from his fifth studio album, due out later this year. He will also hit the road for three shows for The Ultimate Weekender Tour in March.
