Returning to Lakeside next week

Ten years after the TV docu-soap Lakesiders, the BBC has reunited Essex FM breakfast show DJ Martin Day with his old boss Paul Chantler. [b]Return to Lakesiders[/b] broadcasts next Tuesday on BBC2 at 7pm.

Martin and Paul were two of the characters featured in the fly-on-the-wall series when it was originally shown on BBC 1 in 1997. The original fly-on-the-wall series followed characters connected with the Lakeside shopping centre in Essex.

DJ Martin and Paul, who was then programme director of Essex FM, were two of those featured every week. The cameras particularly focused on their rows and conflicts.

Paul told "Looking back on the original footage, it's cringe-making and very cheesy especially as we were deliberately hamming it up for the cameras half the time. "

"Martin is very much the wacky, zany stereotypical Essex boy deejay with long hair and a mullet and I'm the big bad boss who was always slapping him down."

Martin is still on-air at Essex FM, and Paul is now senior partner for radio consultants United Radio and a shareholder of new Hull radio station KCFM.
