    Lily Allen was awful this afternoon. Radio 2 have the perfect lineup of talented presenters, what on earth were they thinking putting her jarring presence on air?

    Please can we get Dermot to do the Saturday afternoon show 2-6pm on Hallam FM next time Scott’s on holiday or off ill?

    As for Lily Allen, she’d be better suited to doing local 8am-12pm on Capital Yorkshire.
