News: Peter Kay To Be Special Guest On Cat Deeley Show

On Saturday 2 January, Cat Deeley makes her Radio 2 debut (10am-1pm) in this live show jam packed full of great chat and fantastic music, direct from Wogan House. Joining her is our favourite car share, he’s won several Baftas, toured the length and breadth of the country, raised millions for charity and sold more DVDs than Avatar and Mama Mia combined. You’ve guessed it, he’s Peter Kay and he’s Cat Deeley’s special guest.

Cat says: “We’re a radio house, so Radio 2 is constantly on in the kitchen, all day, every day, even when we were in LA! Although, due to the time difference, the line-up was slightly different. We loved having a Dance Devotion With Ana Matronic dinner on a Friday night, listening to Liza Tarbuck post-Farmers Market on a Saturday and waking up to Sounds Of The 70s on a Sunday. We don’t miss a moment of music, chat and news, but now we are based here, we begin our day in sync with Zoe instead of starting with Steve!

She continues: “I’m thrilled to be making my Radio 2 debut on Saturday 2 January. This time of year always fill us with love, hope and optimism, even if it looks a little different this year. We may not gather in the same ways or in the same places, but we are always together in our hearts.

"Gather round the radio and tune in to hear me chatting to some fantastic guests and playing the best music. But the thing I’m most excited about is chatting to the listeners. I’ve missed casual conversations, laughing with new friends I’ve just met, putting the world to rights with acquaintances that brighten your day and connecting with people that don’t stay strangers for long so let’s start the year as we mean to go on… together.”

Kay has not made many appearances since unexpectedly cancelling his last major UK tour. He recreated his iconic Comic Relief music video for his version of Tony Christie’s hit, “(Is This The Way To) Amarillo” for the BBC's Big Night In night in April and also put togther an audio version of Car Share (pictured). Perhaps this latest appearance will signal a return and maybe even more live shows.

BBC Radio has also announced that in February, as part of the BBC’s Winter Comedy Season, Radio 2’s Winter Funny Fortnight will feature a raft of new pilots including a new sitcom set in Colonial India (written by Anuvab Pal), a half-hour stand-up special from rising star Kiri Pritchard McLean, and a sketch show from Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated act, The Delightful Sausage, featuring BBC Caroline Aherne Bursary recipient Amy Gledhill.
