Radio 1 puts One Direction on Christmas Day

One Direction, Demi Lovato, Little Mix and Maisie Williams are to present Christmas Day shows on BBC Radio 1.

From 1-7pm, they’ll host Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist – hour long shows presented and curated by the singers – featuring their favourite tracks, including a few Christmas favourites.

Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist schedule:

1-2pm: Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist with One Direction

2-3pm: Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist with Demi Lovato

3-4pm: Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist with Troye Sivan

4-5pm: Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist with Little Mix

5-6pm: Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist with Maisie Williams

6-7pm: Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist with The Vamps

One Direction say: “The best present this Christmas will be coming round to Alice Levine¹s and sharing the day with the Radio 1 listeners.”

The Vamps say: “We’re so excited to give the BBC Radio 1 DJ’s a run for their money by taking over the decks on Christmas Day playing our favourite choooons and chatting about reeeally important things like snow, turkey vs beef debate and presents. Come party with us at 6pm. The playlist is mega!”

Rhys Hughes, Head of Programmes, Radio 1 and 1Xtra said: “I’m absolutely delighted to announce such a stellar line up for Radio 1 on Christmas day. Along with the Christmas No.1 on The Official Chart with Greg James, it should be a great listen, bringing the nation together on Christmas Day.”

Prior to ‘Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist’, for the first time ever on a Friday, Greg James will be announcing the Christmas Number 1 live on The Official Chart (10am-1pm). This will be the first time the Christmas Number 1 has been announced on a Friday since moving from its Sunday slot, and Greg’s first time announcing it. The three-hour show will include a look back at all of the Christmas Number 1’s since the year 2000 and the Official Christmas Chart, helping listeners celebrate the family festivities.

Greg James says: “It’s the biggest chart of the year, and it’s worth delaying my entire family’s Christmas celebrations for! I love being the Official Chart host, and I’m so excited that I’ll be announcing the Christmas Number 1 live on Christmas Day.”

Listeners at home will be able to enjoy the show live on Radio 1, via mobile and the BBC iPlayer Radio app.
