BBC Radio 2 will have a special version of PopMaster on Bank Holiday Monday (25 May) with listeners and some of the UK’s BBC and commercial radio presenters competing against each other.
Ken Bruce will host All-Day PopMaster with radio presenters including Zoe Ball, Greg James, Dotun Adebayo and Ronan Keating competing against each other across the station’s daytime shows.
Dermot O’Leary will launch proceedings in the Radio 2 Breakfast show at 7.35am, with hourly heats through the day into Ken Bruce’s own show (9.30am-12pm), through Claudia Winkleman (12-2pm), and then into the Afternoon Show with Scott Mills (2-5pm).
Scott’s show will also host two Semi-Finals, with the Grand Final taking place in Sara Cox’s show at 5.30pm where Ken will present the All-Day PopMaster Winners’ Trophy to the winner, and all contestants will receive PopMaster prize bundles.
Ken Bruce said: “Our little daily pop quiz has become rather a thing. Having swept the nation into its clutches, it’s now venturing to other parts of Radio 2.
“From the comfort of my luxury abode, I look forward to quizzing some foolish fellow presenters who have agreed to take the plunge. Be warned, you may think you’re a dab hand at pop trivia, but many great quizzers crumble under the pressure!”
