Greg James to host Sounds Like Friday Night

Greg James will host the new live BBC music show "Sounds Like Friday Night".

The 31-year-old radio presenter will host a six-part series next month alongside Radio 1 Xtra's Amplify Dot - also known as Dotty - and a different major music artist every week live from BBC Television Centre in White City.

Greg said: "We have been missing a primetime music show from our TV screens for far too long, so it's fair to say being part of "Sounds Like Friday Night" is something I'm really, really excited about.

"One thing that's fantastic about the show is being able to provide new and emerging acts a home alongside the megastars, introducing them to a new audience.

"Also having the opportunity to interview and have a laugh with some of the biggest stars in the world, on the actual telly, is completely brilliant. I can't wait to get going!"

Not much is known about the guests of the show but Greg will be interviewing the bands and featuring alongside the lead hosts in sketches, while Dotty will be chatting with the guests and the audience and interacting with viewers via social media.

Dotty said: "I'm thrilled to be part of "Sounds Like Friday Night", it's going to be an amazing show. Each week I'll be meeting fellow music fans from around the UK, getting the lowdown from the viewers on social media and bringing the best music to you at home. I can't wait!"
