The BBC’s Newsnight might be under more scrutiny than ever, but that didn’t stop the station handing the show’s reins to long-running Radio 1 DJ Annie Nightingale for a recent takeover.

In two minutes that are, granted, more sweet than they are in any way funny, Nightingale tackles issues of Skrillex’s hair, Swedish House Mafia’s new hotel (at least it’s not another farewell tour, eh?) and Croydon’s new train station. The undoubted highlight though, is the weather, presented by Skream & Benga – Benga puts on his best Queen Mum voice, and we can’t help thinking the two are standing just a little too close together. Guess even the weather department’s been hit by those cuts.
