Jamie Laing will join Vick Hope to co-host Going Home on Radio 1 (3.30pm – 6pm, Monday to Thursday), starting on Monday 4 March.

Jamie is a broadcaster and producer who currently co-hosts the hugely successful Radio 1 podcast ‘6 Degrees from Jamie and Spencer’ for BBC Sounds, and can also be heard on the popular podcast ‘NewlyWeds’ which he presents alongside his wife Sophie Habboo. The former Made in Chelsea star has previously presented on Radio 1, covering for Mollie King whilst she was on maternity leave where he proved to be a firm favourite amongst listeners. He brings a love of entertainment and a healthy interest in new music to the station alongside some exciting fresh features for the show.

Jamie Laing says: “I’ve loved every minute that I’ve been on air with Radio 1 in recent years, so to be joining Vick on Drivetime is just incredible. To be working with Vick is an absolute dream so I’m beyond excited to get started and keep listeners company on their journeys home.”

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of Radio 1, says: “I’m so excited to officially welcome Jamie to the Radio 1 family. From his hugely popular BBC podcast to his appearances on the network, our young audiences have loved him. His infectious energy and love for music and culture will bring an exciting new element to Drivetime, I can’t wait for people to hear all of the exciting new ideas Vick and Jamie have lined up.”

Radio 1 will also be saying goodbye to Jordan North. Jordan, 34, has been heard on Radio 1 for the last 10 years with his first major show being Radio 1’s Greatest Hits on Sundays. He has enjoyed huge support from the station and listeners, developing his talent to host multiple shows across the network. He has been behind some of the most hilarious and entertaining moments on air over the years, and has been a constant source of inspiration for younger presenters.

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of Radio 1, says: “Jordan has been an amazing presenter and a valued colleague at Radio 1, and I’m so proud of his journey with us. He has always connected with the Radio 1 audience through his shows and projects, as witnessed by the huge amount of money raised for Comic Relief during his rowing trip from London to Burnley.”
