First guests announced for new Chris Evans breakfast show

The broadcaster will begin a new show on Virgin Radio.

Chris Evans will be joined by Fay Ripley, Paul Whitehouse, Romesh Ranganathan, Rob Beckett and Richard Ashcroft for his first breakfast show on Virgin Radio.

The broadcaster will host a new show on the station from Monday after departing BBC Radio 2 on Christmas Eve.

The first week of his show will be a “week of Fridays” and will feature guests and a live music performance every day, in a format usually reserved for the end of the week.

The programme will also feature the return of items that were a staple on his BBC show, such as Big Screen Belter, Golden Oldie and Gobsmackers.

Listeners are invited to submit their suggestions for the best song they have heard in a film, a track that takes them down memory lane and the songs that get them going in the morning.

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky will begin on Virgin Radio on January 21 at 6.30am.
