Ex-Big Brother contestant Eugene Sully will host a show for community radio station Uckfield FM next month.

The station will be on air for a month to coincide with Uckfield Festival, which will run from July 7 to July 16. It will launch its fourth annual broadcast with a breakfast show live from Pizza Express in High Street, Uckfield, on Monday at 8am.

The volunteer-run radio station will be on 87.9FM.

Uckfield Mayor Louise Eastwood will guest on the opening show and Eugene, from Crawley, will join the station later in its broadcast.

It will transmit from a studio at the Picture House cinema in High Street and will be around the town in a new outside broadcast van.
