BBC Radio Wales signs up Kiri Pritchard-McLean

Weekly slot from next month

Kiri Pritchard-McLean is to present her own show on BBC Radio Wales.

The comic will broadcast every Sunday at 1pm from the studios in Bangor, just across the Menai Strait from Anglesey, where she was brought up.

Her new slot, which starts on January 10, follows a seven-week stint on Saturdays over the summer. She has also previously hosted Machynlleth Comedy Festival footage for the station.

She said: ‘I had so much fun with my Radio Wales show in the summer, speaking to funny friends, chatting to the brilliant audience and playing absolute bangers. So, I am elated that Radio Wales found some space for me on Sunday afternoons. 

‘I'm so excited to get back to the studio in Bangor and not just because it means my boyfriend has to cook the Sunday roast.’ 

As previously announced, Radio Wales will host a reunion of Gavin and Stacey stars Joanna Page and Mathew Horne   on Christmas Day, with many of the comedy’s cast joining them.
