Tom Allen to host a new weekend show on Virgin Radio UK

Virgin Radio UK has hired comedian Tom Allen to host a new weekend show.

Tom will be on-air each Sunday from 12.30pm till 4pm starting on 14th January 2024.

Recent addition to the station Leigh Francis – aka Keith Lemon – will continue his presenting slot every Saturday from 12.30pm-4pm.

Tom Allen says: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Virgin Radio on a regular basis from January. I can’t wait to hang out with the amazing Virgin Radio listeners whilst playing the best tunes. I promise to chase away any hint of the Sunday blues!”

Virgin Radio UK Content Director, Mike Cass, comments: “Tom is a perfect fit for Virgin Radio, joining an incredible weekend lineup of Graham Norton and Leigh Francis. We can’t wait to hear Tom bring his sense of humour to the show every Sunday. What more could our listeners want!”

And today, Irish broadcaster Ryan Tubridy started his new weekday morning show simulcast with Q102 in Dublin.
