The Official Chart With Jameela Jamil

Sunday 13 January

4.00pm-7.00pm

BBC RADIO 1

Jameela Jamil takes over the reins of Radio 1’s iconic Official Chart, becoming the first solo female presenter of the show since it began back in the 1960s as Pick Of The Pops.

Jameela, who joined Radio 1 earlier this year, will count down the week’s Top 40 songs every Sunday, including presenting the last hour in vision on bbc.co.uk/radio1, screening the Top 10 videos in full. Each week Jameela will also host a competition, giving one caller the chance to win up to 6 tickets (for themselves and 5 mates) to go to a massive gig at a variety of locations across the UK.

The final hour of the Official Chart and the brand new request show with YouTube sensations Dan and Phil will make Sunday evenings a fully visual experience on Radio 1 from 6-9pm.

Jameela said: “I am absolutely delighted and honoured. I'm fully aware that I have big shoes to fill and am so excited to get started... I've grown up listening to the official chart so I cannot thank Radio 1 enough for the amazing opportunity.”
