Vaughan to present Games radio show

Johnny Vaughan is heading back to the airwaves to present Absolute Radio's Olympics show, just months after quitting the Capital FM breakfast programme.

The former Big Breakfast presenter said the daily two-hour show, which starts on the day of the opening ceremony on July 27, would "take the pulse" of the Games.

He said: "It's covering the coverage if you like and the experience of being in the country where it's taking place.

"We always feel London is the focus of the world and the centre of the universe but for two weeks it really will be.

"It is where all the world's hopes and dreams will be.

"For two weeks this summer we're celebrating the two greatest things Great Britain has given the world - sport and music. So I'm really looking forward to celebrating both."

The show, which will feature live music and interviews with comics, presenters and athletes, will run for the two weeks of the Games.

Johnny co-hosted Capital's show for eight years with his former Big Breakfast colleague Denise Van Outen and Lisa Snowdon before abruptly quitting in 2011.
