    The BBC faced fresh accusations of ageism today as two of Radio 1's longstanding women presenters lost their high-profile daily shows to younger rivals.

    After eight years hosting her Radio 1 morning show, DJ Jo Whiley is being dropped from her popular slot in favour of Fearne Cotton.

    Thank God, Edith's voice burnt the ears and offended the masses. Plus the BBC is full of gays so it figures.

    Er, what?

    Both played music completely void of soul so I don't care.

    It's all your fault

    It would be seriously weird if they did see your thread Bubbles, saw all the negative feedback causing the producers to finally decide to get her off.

    I liked Edit Bowman when she was paired up with Colin Murray - Those were the days.

    And I only liked Jo Whiley for the Live lounge. That best not go :rant2:

    Edith Bowman is a legend!! Just because her accent isn't boring south east drawl!
    Radio 1 doesn't play any music during the day that could be considered to have "soul" its just easy listening with nice interesting presenters something both wiley and bowman achieve.
    As for Fearne Cotton- she's got no craic as evidenced by the atrocity that is the chart show on sunday afternoons
