Edith Bowman is fully covered

BBC Radio 1 is calling on the services of three different presenters to cover Edith Bowman's afternoon show over the next few months during her maternity leave.

Over this period Vernon Kay, Fearne Cotton and Nihal will front the show, starting today with Nihal.

Edith Bowman said: "It's a bitter-sweet time as I leave the team behind to embark on another life-changing adventure. "I'm so excited about becoming a mum, I'm gonna miss everyone and I'll be back as soon as I can.

"The gang will keep you all entertained in the meantime."

Ben Cooper, head of programmes for Radio 1 said: "Everyone at Radio 1 wishes Edith all the best during her maternity leave and we'll look forward to her return.

"I know her fellow DJs will do a brilliant job looking after her show while she's away."

In other news, Sara Cox will cover Jo Whiley's maternity leave from October until the end of the year.
