Ore Oduba has been confirmed to cover for Claudia Winkleman on Claudia on Sunday, taking the reigns on BBC Radio 2 until Christmas 2017. Ore will broadcast live from 7pm-9pm every Sunday night, winding down the weekend with two hours of perfect music, fun features and listener dedications.

While Claudia resumes hosting duties on Strictly Come Dancing alongside Tess Daly, her seat will be kept warm this winter by the 2016 Strictly Champion. Ore has been a popular new voice on Radio 2 following recent stints deputising for Claudia and Steve Wright in the Afternoons as well as Sunday Love Songs. His radio experience includes presenting on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Afternoon Edition and the Friday Sports Panel.

Since winning Strictly Come Dancing last December alongside partner Joanne Clifton, Ore has continued to go from strength to strength away from the dance floor; in June he anchored the One Love Manchester tribute concert for BBC One with Sara Cox and recently fronted coverage of the World Athletics Championships in London. He is also regular presenter on The One Show.

Ore’s first show will air on Sunday 24th September at 7pm and continues weekly until Sunday the 17th December. For more information click here.
