Colin Jackson says: “It’s lovely to be back on BBC Radio Wales, where I started my broadcasting career. It’ll be a bit strange having my big sister sat opposite me but we get on so well, it’s going to be really fun.”

Suzanne Packer says: “Colin and I live around the corner from each other, and we’re really close, so I want the show to sound like we’re just sitting down and having a good old gossip”.
