After moving to Wiltshire last year, the Hamiltons are locals. "National TV and radio is all very well, but to be able to talk to friends and neighbours is very special," Christine said.

BBC Radio Swindon and BBC Radio Wiltshire are to broadcast the Christmas Day 9-11am show, on which the husband and wife team will play Sixties and Seventies records and talk to celebrity friends Giles Brandreth and possibly Carol Thatcher, the recent 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here' winner.

Forced into bankruptcy after in 1999 Neil lost a libel trial he brought against Mohamed Al-Fayed, the couple have since carved out a career in the media.

They have featured in marketing campaigns for Ask Jeeves, Visit London and Hush Puppies, and have appeared on TV including Christine participating in a series of 'I'm a Celebrity ...'.
