An amazing line-up of guest presenters including Lily Allen, Jimmy Carr, Damon Albarn, Razorlight and The Prodigy are set to take over Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show for two weeks in January.

This year, while Zane takes a break, each of the shows (Monday to Thursday, 7.00-9.00pm) will be guided on-air by a Radio 1 presenter – kicking off with Pete Tong and The Prodigy.

Alongside regular Zane features "Hottest record in the world" and "Winter Warmer", the guest presenters will also hand-pick new and old influences for their playlists, making each show distinctive in its content.

The line-up:

Monday 12 January – The Prodigy

Tuesday 13 January – Friendly Fires

Wednesday 14 January – Damon Albarn

Thursday 15 January – Biffy Clyro

Monday 19 January – Lily Allen

Tuesday 20 January – Razorlight

Wednesday 21 January – Wombats

Thursday 22 January – Jimmy Carr

Zane Lowe says: "I'm absolutely thrilled with the line-up. From The Prodigy through to Friendly Fires, Damon Albarn, Biffy Clyro, Lily Allen, Razorlight and Wombats we've got an amazing selection of talent.

"It's going to be a great listen and I know that wherever I am I will certainly be tuning in online and checking out the shows myself and maybe even calling in now and then."

Zane Lowe will return on Monday 26 January.

Listen to Radio 1 via FM, DAB digital radio, digital TV and online.
