Nick Grimshaw and Nihal have new weekend shows on Radio 1

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw is being given his own weekend breakfast show in a shake-up to the station's schedule.

Former children's TV hosts Dick and Dom leave the station and their Sunday morning show after a year.

Sara Cox and Edith Bowman also return to Radio 1 in September after their maternity leave.

Sara will cover Jo Whiley's show, Monday to Friday 10am-1pm, during Jo's maternity leave and from the new year will host Sunday mornings from 10am-1pm.

Edith presents the Sunday morning show in September and October and returns to her regular weekday slot, Monday to Friday 1pm-4pm, in November.

Chappers and Dave will host Sunday mornings in November and December.

Annie Mac will continue to do her Mash Up every Friday night and will return to Switch, which she'll present with Nick Grimshaw on Sunday evenings.
