Ace and Vis, who currently host weekday drivetime, are to move to a new weekend show, taking over from Seani B who will now host the 1Xtra Mix tape show on Radio 1 on Sunday mornings from 3am till 5am.

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, 1Xtra, says: "Securing Westwood for daytime on 1Xtra is exciting for us. He's a brilliant broadcaster and will bring a lot of energy, passion and music knowledge to his new show."
