Reality stars join Asian Network

A husband and wife who found fame on Channel 4 reality TV show The Family are joining the BBC Asian Network to present the Weekend Breakfast show.

Shay and Sunny Grewal will take over from Tommy Sandhu and Noreen Khan who've moved on to present the breakfast and drivetime shows on the station.

The couple are newcomers to radio but the BBC say the show promises to be 'a great two hours to wake-up to, with a lively mix of music and chat'. As well as hearing the interesting and quirky stories from the morning papers, we're told the show will see the couple airing their opinions in the feature "He Said, She Said" – showing how a married couple can have different views on every subject, from movies and marriage to food and TV.

Shay says: "Sunny and I are very excited about Weekend Breakfast and bringing something unique to the Asian Network – a married desi couple."

Sunny adds: "It's going to be the perfect start to the day, with the best music and chat and something for everyone! We're looking forward to giving listeners the chance to get involved and talk to us."

Husain Husaini, Head of Programmes at the BBC Asian Network, said: "Since The Family, Sunny and Shay have been regular guests on the Asian Network and have proven themselves to be engaging radio voices. They are well known to the audience from their amazing time on the TV programme and we now want them to take the next step and front this important weekend show. We hope the fans will enjoy it."

Shay and Sunny will start on 4 December and are the latest additions to this year's new-look schedule which has seen Sonia Deol return to the station to present the mid-morning show, Tommy Sandhu move to Breakfast and Noreen Khan take over the Drivetime show.
