The top 40 is moving after the music industry agreed to make Friday the global release date for new albums and singles and t he last Sunday chart show is on July 5 with the first Friday chart five days later.

The new Sunday afternoon show will be hosted by 19-year-old Cel Spellman and will fill the old charts slot between 4pm and 7pm.

Its first two hours will be dedicated to new music with the final 60 minutes featuring a recap of Friday's top 10 and the tracks topping charts including the most streamed song and most watched video.

Spellman, who made his Radio 1 debut two years, is also a regular on CBBC and has acted in shows including Waterloo Road.

He said: " Having grown up listening to the likes of Chris Moyles and the legendary Zane Lowe, joining the Radio 1 family is both a privilege and an honour. The best station on national radio has been responsible for introducing me to so much incredible and varied music over the years, I just hope I can return the favour and help make those car journeys a little more memorable for the listeners with a mix of fun, top tunes and a little bit of cheeky chat."
