BBC Radio 2 has hired Gem 106 breakfast duo Sam & Amy as cover presenters on the station this weekend.

Sam Pinkham and Amy Voce will cover Richard Allinson's programme on Saturday and Sunday (12 and 13 July). The pair, who have presented their breakfast show in the East Midlands for eight years, won Gold for Breakfast Show of the Year (Under 10 Million) at the Radio Academy Awards in 2013 and picked up Gold for Music Radio Personality of the Year at the most recent awards.

Pinkham said: "I never really thought it would happen and on our first show we’ll be warming up for Anneka Rice! I presume she’ll be wearing a yellow jumpsuit? A massive thanks to Gem, as I’m very aware that without their blessing, this wouldn’t be happening. Let’s see how much Rolling Stones they’ll let me play!”
