DJ Charlie Sloth is getting a new late night entertainment show broadcast on Radio 1 and 1Xtra at the same time.

The two-hour slot from 9-11pm on Monday to Thursdays will start on 6 November.

It'll have radio, video and social media content and will feature "Charlie's wit and sense of fun alongside laughs, surprises and all that people are talking about".

MistaJam moves into Charlie's afternoon slot on 1Xtra and takes over Dance Anthems on Radio 1 from Danny Howard.

Talking about the move, Charlie Sloth says: "I'm honoured to be given such a huge opportunity to do something daring, exciting and to really push the boundaries in a landscape where the way people consume content is forever changing.

"What will the show be you ask? One word... Sick. I'm gassed."

Controller of Radio 1, 1Xtra and the Asian Network, Ben Cooper, says there's nothing like it on the radio, TV or online.

"This is taking inspiration from Yo! MTV Raps, The Word and James Corden, and making something that represents young culture in the UK today. It will make you go to bed with a smile."
