Matt Edmondson to cover for Sara Cox on Radio 1

From 14 March 2010, BBC Radio 1's recent signing Matt Edmondson will be stepping in for Sara Cox whilst she goes on maternity leave.

Matt, 24, is already a regular fixture on Fearne Cotton's show every Friday, where he dishes out the latest showbiz news, and now he'll front the Sunday morning slot.

Matt will be on air from 10.00am to 1.00pm every Sunday presenting The Lie In – a combination of entertainment stories from the week, along with the latest hits with a few classic tracks thrown in.

About his first solo show, Matt says: "I'm ridiculously excited about getting started on The Lie In – I've been busying myself in the basement of Radio 1 HQ and have got some great stuff planned for the show – I can't wait."

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller, Radio 1, says: "It's always exciting when brand new talent start on Radio 1. I'm really looking forward to hearing Matt on a Sunday morning with his particular take on the world."

Matt also works as a celebrity writer and interviewer and has worked in various other presenting roles, including fronting the 2008 coverage for the Isle of Wight festival as well as reporting from T In The Park in 2009.
