Danny Howard now has the coveted 9pm-11pm slot, with Tong on afterwards

Radio 1 have been giving their Friday night schedule a shake-up, with Danny Howard [pictured] moving into Pete Tong's 9pm-11pm slot and Tong taking over Howard's 11pm-1am show.

Exactly why this job swap is happening hasn't been explained, but the changes take place from tonight, with Howard introducing a new slot on the show called Lockdown Link-up, while his Friday Fire! guests this week will be Jamie Jones and Alan Fitzpatrick, who'll no doubt be discussing their new Hot Creations release Fairytale Frequency.

After that, Tong's guest in Club Paradise will be Michael Bibi. The show will also feature a Hot Mix featuring tracks from Tale Of Us's new Afterlife compilation Unity, before handing over to the Essential Mix at 1am, which this week will feature a four-hour mix by Amelie Lens.
