New times for Tom Allen's Virgin Radio show

...and for Leigh Francis

Tom Allen’s Virgin Radio show is moving following a shake-up of the schedule ollowing the departure of Graham Norton.

He will now be on air from 10am to 1pm every Sunday, a shift from his previous 12:30pm till 4pm slot. He said he was ‘over the moon’ to be taking the slot.

Keith Lemon creator Leigh Francis takes the same slot on Saturday, sandwich between new weekend breakfast host   Angela Scanlon, and Dick & Dom who will be on air from 1pm to 4pm

Francis said: ‘I’m super excited to start my new Virgin Radio Show fresh off the back of my first ever tour! Remember Saturday mornings when telly was good? Hopefully I can create that vibe but on the radio. Can’t believe I just said vibe."

Virgin Radio UK content director, Mike Cass, said: ‘We’ve had a lot of great listener feedback on Angela Scanlon as well as Dick & Dom when they’ve covered and I’m delighted they’re now a permanent addition to the weekend line-up alongside new times for the amazing Leigh & Tom.’
