By
One Direction will take part in a BBC Radio 1 station takeover on Saturday, October 6.

New Radio 1 breakfast show host Nick Grimshaw confirmed that the boyband's five members will each present their own show with an established Radio 1 DJ to celebrate the station's Teen Awards, which take place the following day (Sunday, October 7).

Grimshaw said that each member of the band would have responsibility for programming their show and devising features, joking: "They have to learn to produce and edit by next Saturday - if [my producer] Matt Fincham's done it, Niall Horan can do it too."

He then phoned around the DJs involved in a parody of Simon Cowell's X Factor judging category announcements, with Huw Stephens saying: "In my head, you're on a sun lounger, and you've got Sinitta next to you wearing some leaves."

Liam Payne will join Gemma Cairney between 8am and 10am, while Grimshaw will be joined by friend Harry Styles between 10am and midday, having joked that whoever ended up as his co-host would be "making my tea and going out for my lunch".

Scott Mills will be accompanied by Zayn Malik between 12 midday and 2pm, followed by Stephens and co-presenter Niall Horan between 2pm and 4pm

Finally, Greg James will be joined by Louis Tomlinson between 4pm and 6pm.
