Vick Hope joins Radio 1 months after stepping down as co-host of Capital FM's breakfast show.

Vick Hope has been named as the new co-host of Radio 1's Life Hacks and The Official Chart: First Look.

The news comes months after the 30-year-old stepped down as co-host of Capital's breakfast show after three years in pursuit of new opportunities.

Hope will replace Cel Spellman on both of his shows, although he will still "continue to be part of the Radio 1 family" in an as-yet unspecified role.

"I grew up listening to Radio 1 religiously, and am honoured to present Life Hacks, a show that is so important to me and so many listeners," said Hope in a statement.

"Right back since the days of The Surgery, I have loved listening to this weekly platform which so openly, honestly and thoroughly discusses issues affecting young people: from mental health and grief to education and careers, sex and relationships to racism.

"Above all, Life Hacks is a community, a space where, whatever is going on in your life, you can know you're not alone."

Hope will make her radio debut on September 6.
