There's a new sound to Heart Breakfast which means we've got an exciting addition to the Heart family. Say hello to Oli!

Oli has swapped his midday lie ins on Heart Drivetime for an early alarm as he joins the new sound of Heart Breakfast. But we want to help you get to know him a little better so here's 7 things you need to know about Oli.

3) He got through to the second round auditions for the X Factor

4) Ice cream is life. Yes. That’s a pirex bowl of ice cream. Unbelievable.

6) Oli’s a big lad at 6ft 5. His nick-name is ‘Baby Mountain’ after this unsavoury chap from Game Of Thrones, ‘The Mountain’ 

7) He made a great ugly sister in Snow White and the 7 Dames. Can you spot which one was Oli?
