Who will replace Scott and Chris on Radio 1?


Recommended Posts


I have seen some say that maybe Matt and Mollie won't be on Radio 1 for long enough to justify the move but even if it is only a few years surely that gives time for some of the newbies to bed in and be ready for such a slot then?

I do wonder if it is something like Greg swapping to afternoons for less pressure. My money is on Matt & Mollie though - It has to be surely?

I think Greg would want to do his own announcement on his show plus he’s done 1pm already.

I'm thinking (hoping) for M&M to take Scott's show, Katie & Jordan to replace them, James Cusack for Dean's show and Jack for the chart. Guess we'll find out soon!

Just curious, why would they seperate Vick & Jordan so soon, and move him back to weekends? Jordan's arguably one of Radio 1's biggest 'stars' now, probably destined for breakfast in a few years.

Ah, fair enough. Should've picked up on that!

Matt & Mollie would be my preferred choice, so hoping it's them. Matt had never managed to get onto weekday daytime with Grimmy, Greg and Scott all being at the top of their game over the years... and now Scott's sadly going, hopefully this is his chance.

I think I’d think it may help Dean to stay on weekends for a bit more longer. It’s not as easy replace as know with something like Asian Network or 1 Xtra as helps with the right show

My choice would be Matt and Mollie - best way to help soften the blow of Scott going and already seem popular with the audience. Think they could do great things with that slot. Katie and Dean aren't an established enough duo to take over a slot as big as Scott's I don't think. M&M to afternoons, Katie to Fri-Sun afternoons and Jack on the chart. With Sam & Danni taking over Life Hacks maybe. If it's not Matt and Mollie, it should be RMC. With Katie taking over mid mornings.

I have no information to suggest either way, but I'd say Katie and/or Dean fit the bill to provide some youthful faces to get embeded in a key part of the Radio 1 schedule. They could easily do it from the North of England and tick another box. I'll be gutted for them if they don't get it after all these rumours!

Matt and Mollie are worthy but I feel they have a lot of other commitments, and people are right to suggest they're further down the line with their Radio 1 journey. Arielle Free is also a potential - traditionally early breakfast stars work their way up...

I could see Sam and Danni taking a show if any of the above are hired. I also think Aled could go leftfield and bring in some new recruits...
