BBC Radio 1Xtra today announced that Yasmin Evans, will co-host their weekday 1Xtra Breakfast Show with Twin B. The 22-year-old Manchester-born DJ joined Radio 1Xtra in September 2012 as the host of the Weekend Breakfast Show.
“I’m super excited to be joining the weekday Breakfast team and to be a part of what they have created,” said Yasmin. She also added: “I’ve loved every minute of being the Weekend Breakfast Show host – so to be asked to do it 5 days a week with Twin is amazing. I just hope he doesn’t mind sharing his cereal in the morning.”
