Frankly, even we are surprised he agreed to host a Christmas Day show again. His regular listener will know how much our host hates Christmas, but as no one else was willing to present the programme, it's a case of make do. On the plus side, there'll be live music from West End star Jodie Prenger and S Club 7's Jon Lee, a couple of appropriate Triples, and a few surprises thrown in to help disguise the fact the show's presented by Paul The Grinch O'Grady.
