  1. Pretty sure they don't have any live TV coverage anymore since BBC3 closed and it's all on iPlayer/ the website. Greg and Fearne never used to be on the radio over Big Weekends because they were hosting the live BBC3 coverage in the evenings. That would be Greg and Clara now if they still did it so the fact they're both doing a lot of the radio coverage and that live TV coverage isn't really necessary to reach the R1 target audience would suggest there's none
  2. No, they mean Scott. Chris isn't a presenter. Scott's name above the door, as they say. His name on the schedules, the voiceovers etc. Him and Chris aren't joined at the hip but I'd say Chris will pop up as a roving reporter chatting to people across the two days.
  3. By next weekend, she will have only done 1 of the last 6 weekend shows. She probably has other work commitments and might have holidays booked around now. Love how Scott always slags her off about it on Thursdays during Real or no Real. "So, do you still work at Radio 1?", "Are you turning up this weekend then?", "Oh the TWO days?!"
  4. Thanks for that. Have you made those yourself? Listened to the On My Mind and Cold ramps and they're different to the ones being used on air.
  5. Haven't listened to it yet but generally, pretty sure Scott and Grimmy get on well. Grimmy came in for the Lolathon, they were hanging out together with Sara Cox at the Brits, whenever Scott mentions Grimmy on his show it seems to be in a friendly way. No beef there I reckon. Probably more to do with a caller using catchphrases from another show.
  6. So nothing will change basically. The report says two extended bulletins with one in peak (i.e. the 5:45) so no need to make any drastic changes to the current schedule. Just a few corrections to the above timings- there's a 10pm which is 2 minutes and the 3:30 is 3 mins.
  7. Gotta say I was really impressed. For a first show, it was way better than I was expecting. Good personality, bit awkward getting out of links and into songs but hit the vocals on the songs I heard him intro, his news intros were almost Scott-level good. Overall, a good choice by R1 to give a trial show and if I was them, he'd definitely be invited back.
  8. HRH= His Royal Highness. They're referring to the Assistant Producer Tom Whiter because they think he looks a bit royal.
  9. Loved the Radio 1 snap election idea! Definitely Scott and Chris on breakfast. With the Capital Breakfast announcement, it's an expected gig for Roman Kemp. He suits Capital perfectly and his evening show is actually a good listen. Never heard Vick Hope so can't comment. Radio 1 don't make schedule decisions based on what Global are doing, though. The point on women is interesting. LBC only has one woman on the weekday schedule, same for Capital, Radio X has zero. They definitely need to do more in promoting women and getting them on-air but it's not just Global, radio as a whole is very male-dominated. For a while, Radio 1 only had one woman in Fearne Cotton on the daytime schedule- it's improved now with Adele, Clara and Annie. Stations have gotten slightly better I think but the industry as a whole, not just Global, needs to do more in promoting women.
  10. The problem is that he came to Radio 1 as Scott's mate so when Scott goes, what happens with him? My guess is he'll focus mainly on the BBC Three documentaries he's been doing and also some Radio 1 Stories documentaries. They'll probably give him a weekly show on the Radio 1 iPlayer rounding up the week's viral videos and big online things. Radio-wise, he might not even want to be a solo presenter and R1 may not see him as one. He could get trained up as an Assistant Producer on one of the shows who contributes on-air from time to time. He could just hang around in the background contributing to some features across the schedule when needed- pops up to play Initial Reaction with Matt, does Rage with Greg sometimes, goes out and does stunts/ interviews/ funny things for the breakfast show? Or they could decide to make him a co-host with Matt or Alice. One of them will probably be taking over afternoons when Scott leaves so they could just leave Chris on the show as the audience is used to him and it would help Matt or Alice settle in as weekday presenters (there are times I think Matt could really do with a co-host).
  11. Sorry but none of this would ever be likely. A general rule is that the main daytime presenters never cover weekends. Scott, Greg or Clara wouldn't even be in the picture to cover Matt's weekend show- Jordan North, Yasser, Nick Bright or Adele are the main weekend covers. It was different with Scott and the chart on Sunday because that was a big flagship show for the station. Fearne Cotton and Sara Cox left Radio 1 so 100% no. The extending of hours would disrupt the whole schedule and doubt Dev or Alice would agree to it unless it was an emergency. You're right that Moyles did the breakfast show one day and then came back to cover Greg James at 1pm. One of my all-time favourite R1 moments- hilarious and such a surprise. It was a complete one-off and very last minute iirc but loved it- maybe someone has it and can attach a link here or it's on the archive somewhere? This would be completely irrelevant to the decision I'd imagine. They worked together for a few months on ITV on the TV- still can't get my head around the decision to get Rylan to cover. So many other options, not a very "Radio 1 name" and he won't know the basics of radio presenting. Chris Cook and the AP are probably in for a nightmare 3 hours!
  12. It must be a bit annoying that the breakfast team's holidays are sort of defined by when Grimmy wants to take his. With Greg or Scott, it's less of a big deal because one member of the team being off doesn't disrupt the on-air "team" sound of the show. If Greg is off, Ian is often still producing Dev and likewise if Ian is off, Travis or someone else just steps in as Producer.
  13. Haha he's everywhere on TV in the UK- does Big Brother's Bit on the Side, did Xtra Factor last year, does showbiz slots on This Morning, has his own chat show on Channel 5. Don't think he's ever done radio before though- very strange booking.
  14. They're better than Grimmy but I don't listen to Radio 1 in the morning so if they're not on afternoons, I listen back to the show on iPlayer rather than Matt and it's just not as good as them being on in the afternoon. They have to tone down some of their normal humour and the in-jokes because it's Grimmy's audience and is "the breakfast show". Also no proper Real or no Real, no Bamboleo, no Innuendo Bingo, no funny, weird, long stories from listeners. They still do a great job on breakfast but it's not as good as their normal show. That's not a whooo haha
  15. Is it not a mess every year though? There are only ever two or three bits worth catching up on. It's a great cause and everything and people should still donate if they can but I don't watch it anymore because the majority of the "comedy" on the night is more cringe than funny.
