Former Hollyoaks stars to front new 4music show

By | Published on Tuesday 24 February 2009

Former Hollyoaks stars and more recent radio presenting duo Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries, Max and OB to those who watched the shoddy soap, will front a new show on Channel 4’s music channel 4Music which will see the pair fight it out on behalf of rival pop stars.

The Versus Chart will ask who’s better, Britney or Christina, Girls Aloud or Sugababes, Eminem or Kanye, that kind of thing. Each edition will feature videos from the two competing artists complete with commentary from Littler and Jeffries. The new show, one of a number of new programmes due to air on 4Music, will launch next month.

Confirming the new programme, Dave Young of Box TV, the joint venture between C4 and Bauer Media, who will make the new show, told reporters: “4Music is all about taking a new perspective with music and using this to deliver fresh programming. Music is at the heart of everything we do and what better way to tap into that that to pit head to head some of the best and brightest pop artists that are out there? These artists each have a major following in their own right – and we wanted to find a way to bring this showcase to bear for our audiences”.
