Yasmin Evans also co-presents the breakfast show and is very excited about the upcoming performances: “I know a few of the artists have some VERY special performances up their sleeves. Chase & Status always put on a good show and it's also nice to have big names from overseas– like Robin Thicke & Azealia Banks on the same tour as UK artists like Naughty Boy and Wretch 32.”
