Hollyoaks stars join the Gaydio schedule

Manchester community radio station Gaydio has hired Hollyoaks duo Kieron Richardson and Bronagh Waugh to host a weekly show.

Kieron and Bronagh, who play Cheryl Brady and Ste Hay in the Channel 4 soap, can be heard each Sunday from 4 till 6pm.

Commenting on the show, Bronagh said “It’s great that Kieron and I get to be ourselves on Gaydio, talking about everyday things and some not so everyday stuff! Off screen we are great friends and it’s wonderful to know our fans have embraced the new show – we’re loving being able to talk directly to the listeners”.

Kieron, who revealed he was gay on ITV’s This Morning programme in 2010, having been inspired to do so by X Factor winner Joe McElderry, is a Mancunian and proud of it. He added “We’re broadcasting from the amazing City of Manchester, where Gaydio has grown an equally amazing audience. But through the website and iPhone app we get listeners from all over the world – I can’t wait to get to know them all.”

Gaydio Programme Director Toby Whitehouse told RadioToday.co.uk: “Kieron and Bronagh bring an amazing energy to Sundays at Gaydio. They’re great role models and a fantastic addition to our lineup which already includes Manchester music icon Rowetta, radio legend
Nicksy and dance music goliath David Dunne. We’re really pleased to welcome them into our great team”.
