Radio 1 returns to Edinburgh

BBC Radio 1 and Scott Mills are heading back to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe next month, where the afternoon presenter will go live in front of an entertainment-hungry audience.

Scott's been given the task of writing and performing his own one man show.

He'll do it with the help of his team, Beccy and "The One That Doesn't Speak".

Scott says: "We had a great time broadcasting from Edinburgh last year so it's brilliant to have the chance to spend the week in Scotland and get involved with the Fringe again. After the musical I thought I'd never be as terrified again – but l am! What shall I do in my one-man show? What would you do? I have no idea!"

From 16-20 August, Scott's Radio 1 show will be live from Edinburgh as the team each take it in turns to perform their one-man shows in the evenings.

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, Radio 1, said: "Radio 1's presence at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010 promises to be yet another ambitious creative project for the station, where Scott will entertain his audience on the radio, visually online and through the events at the Fringe."

This year, Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw will also be live from the Edinburgh Fringe and each night, when Scott and the team come off stage, they will go straight onto Nick's show (10pm-12midnight) to tell him how they got on.
