Ugly Phil is returning to radio as part of 104.9 XFM’s Christmas schedules. The Former Kerrang! 105.2 presenter will host the weekday breakfast show for two weeks, between Monday 24th December and Friday 4th January.
Ugly Phil (real name Phillip Surridge) left West Midlands-based Kerrang! 105.2 in September once his contract had expired. The show was replaced by the station’s multi-award winning Tim Shaw and former Big Brother winner Kate Lawler.
John Hilcock replaces XFM’s controversial Xu format on mid-mornings for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. Weekday afternoons are covered on various days by Graeme Smith, Samanthi and Marsha.
