BIG WEEKEND SCHEDULE (BOTH DAYS)

10:00 = Matt Edmondson & Greg James

13:00 = Alice Levine & Nick Grimshaw

16:00 = Scott Mills & Annie Mac (Saturday) ; Scott Mills and Chris Stark (Sunday)

19:00 = Huw Stephens & Dev

23:00 = Phil Taggart (Highlights)

Can't remember the last time the schedule was pretty much identical over both days but it's a really strong line-up and some good pairings there. Good to see Greg doing some of the radio coverage as in previous years, he has done BBC Three only.

So the last time Fearne will be heard on Radio 1 will be next Friday - she seems to be going to Big Weekend for fun and farewells rather than work.

Only name missing is Gemma Cairney, which is a bit of a kick in the teeth for her and a strong indication that she has fallen out of favour with R1 bosses.

Trevor Nelson, who is usually part of the line-up, is also missing which means no 1Xtra voices which I find strange considering the promotion of 1Xtra on Radio 1 recently and the push to integrate the two stations.

Danny Howard is also absent.

Notes

Greg James and Clara Amfo are hosting BBC Three's coverage over the weekend.

Adele Roberts is looking after Weekend Breakfast while Dev is in Norwich.

Clara Amfo starts presenting the 10-12:45 slot the day after Big Weekend finishes (Monday 25th)

Refreshing to see such a varied and interesting schedule! Dev used to work for 1Xtra as you know, but I agree, it's strange there's no 1Xtra hosts like Sarah Jane Crawford.... I'm so glad Gemma is slowly being edged out of the door. Props to her for getting a job there, not sure how mind you, but I just think she's damned awful.

Gemma has another week off next week (Adele covering). Seems very odd seeing as this week was her first time on air in two weeks. With Adele taking over Early Breakfast full-time on 1 June, Gemma only has a week left on daytime.

Talk about limping to the finish! Must be very strange for Adele though; covering a show that isn't her own so regularly, but will be hers in about two weeks! Gemma's clearly given up on the show (although some argue she gave up in March last year!

Dev covered Greg loads due to holidays or Greg covering Scott after the new schedule was confirmed
