Trevor and Gemma

Trevor and Gemma's on-air relationship began in November 2008 when Gemma took over from former co-host Zena.

Since that time they have brought their own unique blend of off-the-wall humour, hot gossip and the biggest new tunes to the bleary-eyed morning airwaves of the nation including a 1Xtra Breakfast Tour of the UK.
