Fearne Cotton Makes Radio 2 Debut This Summer

While Graham Norton takes his summer break, Fearne Cotton and Martin Kemp will be making their Radio 2 debuts with a new live show from Saturday 9 July until Saturday 10 September.

Fearne and Martin will team up for a lively show of banter, good music and top guests. As well as looking back at and mulling over some of the more offbeat news stories from the past week that you may have missed, Fearne and Martin will be joined each week by two top celebrity guests.

Plus in a fully interactive show some listeners will be able to 'Meet Their Hero' live on air via the phone and ask them a question. From time to time there will be the odd acoustic performance live in the studio. Every week there will be three tracks from a classic vintage album of the week alternately chosen by Fearne or Martin.

Fearne, who presented her last Radio 1 show on 22 May 2015, says: “I can’t wait to get back on the radio, so to be presenting on Radio 2 this summer on Saturday mornings with Martin Kemp is going to be absolutely brilliant.”

Martin says: “Radio 2, Fearne Cotton, every Saturday through the summer! When they asked me to work with Radio 2 I never expected this! It's gonna be a great way to spend my Saturday mornings... chatting to great guests, some fun and games and playing my favourite tracks with one of the most experienced radio DJs out there! Now things are really warming up... Roll on the summer!”
