Luke's first ever record was a compilation of Abba hits

Luke started work at BBC Radio Suffolk as a programme assistant in 1996, but his BBC career started more than 10 years earlier as a film critic on BBC Breakfast Time with Selina Scott and Frank Bough.

"In all, I made 12 appearances during the school holidays on the famous red sofa reviewing the latest cinema releases," said Luke.

In 1998, Luke took a career break and joined the low cost airline Go as a trolley-dolly, but in March 2000 he returned to BBC Radio Suffolk as a radio-car reporter.

"It was a great job and I covered a wide range of stories and met a lot of very interesting people," said Luke.

"I also read the news, produced the lunchtime programme with Rachel Sloane and Nick Risby's mid-morning show, which was great fun," he added.

After time presenting the Saturday Breakfast show and a spell on the afternoons, Luke now sets his alarm clock early on a weekend to present the Sunday Breakfast Show.
