5Live DriveTime presenter, and occasional newspaper reader on Lorraine, Aasmah Mir will be sitting in for Jeremy for a week from 19th March.

I like her. Much more suited to the slot than Vanessa Feltz.

Don't know her Ian, but she has to be better than Vanessa Feltz surely?

It begs the question why they are not using Ms Feltz this time round

I wonder whether she's upset someone or they've had bad feedback Smile

BBC London probably haven't got someone to cover her.

I think it's more likely that they realised Feltz wasn't working.

I wonder, with Baker in for Evans, Mir in for Vine, and Allinson for Wright (to name a few) if we've turned a corner with the stand-ins? Getting more suitable people in the slot?

(Of course, Liza Tarbuck for Mayo blows this theory but at least it's not Richard bloody Madeley).

It seems strange how voices speak volumes. Wink Do they read the forums?

Before someone asks how come you found the information it's from her twitter account.

Anyone been listening?

I've heard bits over the last 2 days and she seems quite good. As I say I've not heard her before but I don't listen to 5Live.

Sounds good to me, too. Although, oddly, she sounds a little different to how she does on 5Live - more relaxed.

Bah! I've enjoyed her chats with Ken, too - always an essential test for any stand-in.
