A young entrepreneur has been enjoying a brush with stardom by making a series of appearances on national radio.

Oliver Hodgson, 16, from Gosforth, featured on BBC Radio One's Early Breakfast show with DJ Adele Roberts every morning last week.

The programme has a regular slot where a "Resident DJ" has a morning chat with Adele about a range of subjects and chooses a track for her to play.

Oliver, who DJs at events, as well as running his own events company Platinum Live, applied to be her resident DJ via the BBC website and was thrilled when he got the gig.

He and Adele discussed a variety of subjects, with Oliver choosing tracks to fit themes including "Monday Motivation" and "Throwback Thursday".

Oliver also chatted with presenter Arielle Free on Tuesday as Adele was covering another show.

He chose some of his favourite tracks including 'Ruby' by the Kaiser Chiefs and 'Mr Brightside' by The Killers.

"This week has been utterly amazing, Adele and Arielle have been great and so eager to get me on each morning, always having a chat before we go live was a nice touch," said Oliver.

"Those that know me know that Radio One has always been a dream, and hopefully this week counts for something and it will help me later on in life.

"My ultimate dream is working on Radio One or another BBC radio station.

"They have given me the idea that it could be possible.

"It was such a humbling experience."

Oliver said he particularly enjoyed talking about the Brit Awards, which took place last Tuesday.

“I’d like to pay a thanks to Radio One producers Amy and Thomas, and of course to Adele Roberts and Arielle Free for being so lovely," he said.

"I would also like to say a big thank you to my mum Caroline and father Dale who never fail to show their support with everything that I do, they are pretty cool.”

Adele Tweeted her appreciation of Oliver's time on the show, posting: “He’s wonderful! Such a brilliant reaction from the listeners this morning! He’s a natural.”
