Radio 1’s Scott Mills and Chris Stark will be hitting the road this autumn for Scott Mills’ Student Tour, visiting five universities in Stirling, Liverpool, Shropshire, Aberystwyth and Southampton between Monday 5 and Friday 9 October.

Every day that week Scott’s 1-4pm Radio 1 show will be broadcast live from a different location, with Scott - who didn’t go to university - and Chris, who attended the University of Southampton, fully immersing themselves in student life and soaking up the university experience to reflect the freshers’ period to Radio 1 listeners.

The pair will be taking their LOL features, including Innuendo Bingo, on the road with them, while Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw will be taking to the wet seat in Liverpool - his former university city. Each broadcast will feature an audience of local students and will be available to watch on TV via the Red Button. Viewers can also watch on their mobile or online through the Radio 1 website, and can catch highlights on BBC iPlayer.

Scott says: “I am so excited to be taking the show on the road and spending the week with people that absolutely love Radio 1 - the students of the UK.”

Chris says: “This is going to be a LOT of fun. I can’t wait to show Scott everything that university is about. Radio 1 was the soundtrack to my time at uni so I can’t wait to go back.”

Dates and Locations of Scott Mills’ Student Tour are:

Monday 5 October - University of Stirling

Tuesday 6 October - Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts

Wednesday 7 October - Harper Adams University

Thursday 8 October - Aberystwyth University

Friday 9 October - University of Southampton
