He said: "I've always listened to Heart from being a kid on the way to school and now getting ready for a night out, so to be presenting my own radio show on the station is a great honour. I had to pinch myself when I found out and I can't wait for my first show."
Myleene Klass has also joined the network will be hosting her very own festive special, 'Myleene's Klass Christmas', on Christmas Eve from midday, featuring exclusive performances from guests including The X Factor's Ella Henderson.
Myleene said: "I'm so excited to be joining the Heart presenter line up. To be given my own show, a piano and the chance to work with some incredible people (as well as the seemingly constant supply of mince pies), is a lovely way to get in the Christmas spirit."
Global Radio's Director of Broadcasting Richard Park said: "We are thrilled with the new faces joining Heart this Christmas and new year. What a great way to end a successful year and kick start 2013!"
