Isn't she this year's "guest presenter" following in the footsteps of Paul Merton and Lee Mack? I hear she's been taking lessons from Steve Wright so will talking for 10 minutes then playing some oldies, and her own jingle ("God Save The Queen") over and over.

Good to see Ryan Tubridy back and I like Craig Charles but I can't say there's much else of interest. Remember the days when we used to have radio presenters? Now we just have a load of celebs who use R2 as a bit of casual work on the side.
