Radio 1 & 1Xtra Controller, Ben Cooper, today announced changes and brand new signings to the Radio 1 & 1Xtra schedules.

From Monday 2 April Greg James will move to weekdays 4-7pm, swapping places with Scott Mills who also gets a new show, moving to weekdays 1-4pm.

Greg James said: "My dream job just keeps getting better and better. I can’t wait to get going with the new show!"

Brand new signing Jameela Jamil will be joining the station to host the Radio 1 Request Show which will be now broadcast on Sunday’s from 7-9pm.

Jameela Jamil said: "To say I'm excited is a major understatement - being offered the opportunity to join the Radio 1 family is literally a dream come true and I can’t wait to slip on the headphones."

Gemma Cairney will be taking over the weekend breakfast show 7-10am, moving over from sister station, 1Xtra where she has been presenting the afternoon show since January 2011.

Gemma said: "I arrived at 1Xtra just over three years ago a wide eyed puppy & soon became obsessed with all things radio. It will be really emotional, but I'm only moving downstairs to Radio 1 and I can't wait for all the new fun it'll bring."

Edith Bowman moves to a midweek slot, becoming the host of Radio 1’s Review Show on Tuesdays, 9-10pm, where each week she will host a guest panel who will discuss the latest new music releases.

In addition, Danny Howard, 24, from Blackpool, who was discovered through a Radio 1 talent search and opened the Radio 1 Ibiza Weekend in 2011, has landed a brand new show every Saturday 4-7pm, which will be called R1’s Dance Anthems with Danny Howard.

Specialist music strand, In New DJ’s We Trust*, will also get an exciting new line up with DJ’s B.Traits, Mosca, Jordan Suckley and Julio Bashmore hosting shows on a four weekly rotation.

There will also be some changes to the 1Xtra schedule. Sarah-Jane Crawford, currently hosting weekends 1-4pm will move to take over the weekday 1-4pm show, and a new addition to the network will be Adele, she’ll take the reins from Sarah-Jane and present the weekend 1-4pm show.

On the changes to the schedule Ben Cooper said: "These are exciting times at Radio 1 & 1Xtra. The latest changes are about attracting even more young listeners by bringing in new and fresh talent to the stations. At the end of last year we announced changes to the specialist music line-up, so I’m really looking forward to hearing the new line up in full when we launch in April."

The new schedule will come into effect from Monday 2 April 2012.
