Ashley will be dialling up the noughties nostalgia and bringing the ultimate party vibes to Saturday nights on Heart 00s from 4pm – 7pm.

Ashley Tabor-King OBE, Founder & Executive President of Global, said: “The Heart brand goes from strength to strength and we’ve seen tremendous growth from Heart 70s, Heart 80s, Heart 90s and Heart Dance. We’ve been wanting to do noughties for a little while now and we’re delighted to add Heart 00s to the family!”

Heart’s Managing Editor Andy Everett said: “We know the noughties are wildly popular with our listeners, and they will love the joyful nostalgia of Y2K when we launched into a new millennium.

"Gen Z are discovering millennial music on TikTok with tracks like Where Is The Love by the Black Eyed Peas and Vanessa Carlton's 2001 track, A Thousand Miles. This is the perfect time to launch Heart 00s. It’s time to don double denim and turn up the feel good noughties style!”

Ashley Roberts said: "We’re taking you back to the noughties hunnis and I’m beyond excited to be hosting my first ever solo radio show on Saturday nights!

"The noughties has a special place in my heart as it’s an era with a lot of incredible memories. I can’t wait to play you the most iconic throwback tunes on Heart 00s… including a few Pussycat Dolls songs too!”

Mike Panteli said: "I’m really excited to be part of Heart's brand new station, Heart 00s. Heart is so iconic, and it’s a real privilege to be hosting the Heart 00s Breakfast show. Looking forward to waking you all up!
