Strictly star Denise Van Outen to dance to a different tune hosting new radio show
Monday 18 March 2013
Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Denise Van Outen will be tapping her toes to a different tune as she hosts her own radio show.
The former Big Breakfast presenter will be sharing her favourite songs with listeners of Magic 105.4 as she steps in for a three month stint each Saturday from March 30.
Van Outen, who danced her way into the Strictly final last year, said: "I'm so excited to be joining the team and sharing some of my favourite tunes with the listeners - roll on Saturday afternoons.
"I've been a fan of Magic for years. I listen to the station at home and when I'm driving."
The actress has plenty of musical experience, having starred as Roxie Hart in the West End and Broadway stage show Chicago and in hit West End show Legally Blonde: The Musical.
She was also a judge on BBC show Any Dream Will Do - a competition to find a new star for Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - where she met her husband, winner of the show Lee Mead.
Van Outen will host the weekend lunchtime show at 1pm for 12 weeks and listeners can send her questions and requests to www.magic.co.uk.
