BBC Radio Solent celebrates 40

BBC Radio Solent is helping 40 couples celebrate their years of wedded bliss live on the radio as part of the station's 40th birthday celebrations.

Each couple will be live on the Julian Clegg Breakfast Show and sharing their wedding and marriage tales.

Julian said: "We're certainly showing that romance is alive and well. But how will the experience of those who got married in 1970 differ from the newly-weds – and what tips can they pass on?"

The station will host a number of events and features across the summer, including following afternoon presenter Katie Martin who will follow four former brides vowing to get fit and lose enough weight to get back into their wedding dresses.

Faith programme presenter Tim Daykin, meanwhile, will be following couples from different faiths as they tie the knot this summer.
