I feel Charlie Hedges will be on some point on NYE always felt they could’ve done an R1 Dance or Essential Mix special on NYE wonder if Scott will do any Radio 2

If I had to guess...

Early Breakfast in the run up to Christmas hosted by one of the recent Friday EB presenters

Matt & Mollie on breakfast from Monday 20th-Thursday 23rd with Matt solo on Christmas Eve. 

Dean McCollough between 10:30 & 1 and Katie Thistleton between 1 & 4 on Christmas Eve.

Scott with the chart on Christmas Eve... then Christmas Day breakfast (although I suspect as Xmas Day is a Saturday.. there will be a pre recorded Christmas special of his 5 live Show too). Last time the 25th fell on a Saturday.. the weekend breakfast presenter did breakfast (Dev at the time) so maybe it will be the same again with Adele? I hope it's Scott, though. I dare say he'll be popping up on Radio 2 over the Christmas holiday, too.

Arielle in for Vick & Jordan 20th-23rd December.

Boxing Day to New Year's Eve is new presenters as we know.

It would be good to hear him covering on Radio 2 on Christmas period maybe he’ll be on Radio 2 NYE though think that it would be good for Radio 2 have different party genres or soundtracks maybe

Johnnie Walker with NYE’s Rock Party on Radio 2

Ana Matronic’s NYE Dance Party on Radio 2

Sophie Ellis Bextor’s NYE Kitchen Disco on Radio 2

Agree with the vast majority of this apart from Xmas Day - I predict, and very much hope, Scott does breakfast as usual...

Yes there’s only been a few occasions when he hasn’t when Dev does it think. Depends on what type of stuff he ends up doing on Radio 2 over Christmas

Didn’t put Scott in as last time Xmas Day was a weekend he missed that year so based it off that.

That doesn't sound too bad. Dave Pearce never appeared last year so maybe that ship has sailed. I'd be surprised if Pete Tong popped up on R2. It's probably going to be one of Scott, Rylan or Ritchie Anderson on air going into the New Year. There were a few years when R1 just went into back to back music on NYE, thankfully they returned to live presentation a few years back, as in my opinion it's one of the best nights of the year to have live audience interaction (especially with WhatsApp messaging available now).

I sure few years back he did a four piece hour long house show telling different stories of house music think for people who now listened to Radio 2 is some of the Radio 1 of the 90s listeners and think that having him doing NYE would be good Scott, Rylan (maybe), Richie I feel definatley would be used in XMAS period  new year they’d be most likely for sure. I do find that like Dave doing the R2 NYE was good usually catch up over first week of Jan of what different BBC Radio stations do like 6 Music though found myself listening to bit of capital dance

Yes, agreed and think that it felt essential last year as pretty much all United Kingdom back under some form of lockdown to provide that chat between presenter to have a house party feeling good bit of escapism felt needed then.

When caught Jordan doing it in Radio 1 before was good I find for when he done it felt the pressure of getting the right timing and not going early on countdown. Made right choice previous years of having him doubt he can have people engaged and enjoying more mubdahe chit chat bits

I do miss them on breakfast, but that ship has sailed sadly. If Scott is going to be on Christmas Eve, it will be the Christmas Official Chart which falls that day. I hope he still does Christmas Day breakfast even with it falling on a Saturday.  

Will be interesting to how much live programming there is on Christmas Day this year. Last year there was the BFBS takeover which was a really good idea, would be good if that came back.

I think with Scott it would be the case of what ever cover he’s doing on Radio 2 over Christmas or maybe in a long term relationship if he wants a Christmas Day with the family

I hope he doesn't do much on R2, but instead has a proper holiday before back on R1 in January. I think actually he's done enough cover on R2 (with all the double-shifts) not to have anything to prove over the holidays. Those should be covered by the longterm cover folk like Gary Davies IMO, i.e. those who are unlikely to ever move to a proper daytime R2 show.

Agree with your point about Scott and his family - it should be up to him really, as I assume it's been in recent years, if he wants Xmas Breakfast then he should be allowed it but certainly won't be pushed to do so. Hope he does the Xmas chart this year though (on Xmas Eve)

I assume he’d like to do the Christmas chart presented it a few times but i know Scott as a pop music fan loves the prestige of presenting something as iconic. Agree about your point covering they likely go for regular presenters or potentially few celebs chucked in that seems possible but maybe there would be on show and that it. Can’t in reality seeing him doing that much Christmas radio as used to. Think it would be good to have most presenters having Christmas break so refreshed for the January where think then maybe programming another fresher feel

I searched for them earlier and they all seem to be local BBC presenters. Seems that it won’t be every single slot being covered by new talent this year if Arielle is (pre-recorded for some reason) on Boxing Day afternoon.

Fingers crossed it’s Scott on Christmas Day breakfast. I can see Dean potentially hosting the Christmas Anthems in the afternoon and nice to see (hopefully) Greg on Christmas Eve breakfast for 4 hours. Think that will be a very fun show.

First of all I think it’d be unlikely that Jordan and Vick are split off. Jack bring on in the afternoon is believable but the second half of that show would probably be the Chart. I wonder if the Boxing Day schedule is in fact the Xmas day schedule. They usually have a takeover on that day? Arielle then Sarah followed by maybe Danny would be a good schedule for the rest of the day, with Scott on breakfast, if not Vick and Jordan? 
 

Dean being on weekdays would be weird considering that they usually have exclusively Christmas presenters, but even weirder would be to move Jordan, by himself, out of his usual slot and be replaced with Dean who could slot into the mid morning slot.

Surely this is fake because in previous years the new presenter Take Over has been for all shows between Boxing Day Breakfast & about 4/5pm on NYE?

It went into NYD last year (minus 6pm-1am on NYE), but yeah, usually starts on Boxing Day. No doubt we'll get anthems shows again. My favourite Christmas Eve programming in the past was when they did a pre recorded 'bangers special' with Scott & Chris some years back. A 10 hour takeover wouldn't be a bad idea... would be better than back to back Christmas hits. 

That schedule looks a bit suspect in parts.. Of course it maybe Scott's choice to be off on Christmas Eve (and that's not my business to speculate otherwise) but I can't see him not unveiling the Christmas No.1 for a second year running. There was good excuse on Christmas Day last year with him on Breakfast. We'll find out soon enough I guess.
