Jayne Middlemiss has been announced as the new daytime presenter on Virgin Radio UK, joining Chris Evans at breakfast and Graham Norton on the weekends.

The presenter is taking over from Tim Cocker on weekdays starting Monday (24th October) and will be helping you through the afternoon with some great music. 

Jayne Middlemiss previously presented weekend breakfast on Virgin Radio UK and has covered the daytime slot in the past. She began her career presenting music TV shows such as Top of the Pops and has also won Celebrity MasterChef and Celebrity Love Island, cementing her status as a household name.

Speaking about the announcement, she said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Virgin Radio daytime family. To work alongside people I have listened to and admired for years is an honour and a joy. Music and talking are two things I love. 

“To work at such a vibrant creative station doing those things is a dream come true. It feels like an exciting new chapter and I'm finally coming home. I cannot wait.”

Virgin Radio UK Content Director, Mike Cass, said: “We’re thrilled to have Jayne moving to weekdays, she’s a natural talent and is wonderfully engaging. She’s the perfect addition to the workday and with Bam in his new home of evenings, this is a great team for Autumn 2022.”

Tim Cocker, who previously presented daytimes on Virgin Radio UK, will be moving to afternoons on Virgin Radio Anthems and will continue on Virgin Radio UK on the weekends from 4-7pm.

You can listen to Jayne Middlemiss on Virgin Radio UK weekdays 1-4pm on DAB, online, Sky TV, smart speakers or via the 'Virgin Radio UK' app.
