There's a brand new radio station in town - Hits Radio

A brand new national digital radio station Hits Radio launched today and the breakfast show started with a bang - Jess Glynne joined the presenters Gethin Jones, Gemma Atkinson and Dave Vitty bright an early.

The Hold My Hand singer only recently became Britain's female artist with the most number ones - beating the likes of Cheryl!

The 28-year-old star admitted: "I am so overwhelmed by that title. It is insane, but yeah, it’s not sunk in."

The singers career kicked off back in 2013 and admitted during the show that creating music is her version of therapy. She explained on the Hits Radio: "Music… it’s like my self-therapy.

"I'm quite good at holding in emotions and then it all comes out at one point. When I write and I get in the studio and I make music I feel like I let loose of all that tension."


Jess also went on to admit that despite breaking records in the UK, "I haven’t got my own private jet, I've been on one. I went on one the other day and I took my friend."

Fancy being our friend? We'd love to go on a private jet to be honest.

The Hits Radio kicked off at 6am with Take That’s song Greatest Day and after the hit played, Gethin said: "That was Greatest Day by Take That, the song you chose as the first ever song to be played on Hits Radio, Good Morning - if you’re listening to this it means I’ve pressed the right button."

Gemma Atkinson then exclaimed: "You did! We all made it."

Not only is the Hits Radio a new station but it's the only national commercial radio station to be broadcast out of Manchester, from the regions to the rest of the UK.
