Graham Norton's Virgin Radio replacements revealed as Strictly star and Celebrity Juice legend land weekend slots

The star, 61, made the shock announcement just one day before leaving, saying he wanted to have his 'weekends back' after 13 years of presenting.

Virgin Radio presenter Amy Voce, whose show airs before Norton's, said she is 'gutted' he is leaving but feels he deserves his weekends back as he has 'put in a shift'. Norton read out a number of messages from listeners who said they would miss him, with one admitting they were 'distraught' but hoped he enjoys the lie-ins, to which he responded: 'I will, getting out of bed this morning was so lovely, thinking 'I won't be doing this next week'.' Before launching into Dua Lipa's new single Houdini, he said: 'This lady was on my chat show on Friday night and I was so impressed with her, she's so effortlessly charming, but clearly bright and has a vision and has a determination, and she deserves all the success she is enjoying.'
