Scott Mills is to host a one-off show on BBC Radio 2 as part of Sara Cox’s Sounds of the 80s Danceathon.
The Radio 1 weekday afternoon presenter will be on-air from 10pm till 2am on Monday 20th March whilst Sara continues to dance for Red Nose Day just outside the Radio 2 studios. It will be the first time Scott has hosted his own show on the station, and the first on another station since joining Radio 1 in 1998.
Scott is currently hosting a 24 hours LOLathon on BBC Radio 1, also to raise money for Red Nose Day.
BBC Radio 2 recently cut live overnight programmes, so is bringing in other presenters to keep the live updates going for 24 hours. Trevor Nelson will be live from 2am till 5am, followed by Vanessa Feltz, then Michael Ball is hosting the breakfast show, in for Chris Evans.
Sara’s Danceathon will be broadcast on the Radio 2 website and also on the Red Button via digital TV.
When you've been on air for 16 hours ??
