Phil, known for his role as Duffy in the cult comedy classic Early Doors that will gets it big stage comeback later this year, is launching the new Saturday afternoon show for BBC Radio Manchester.
The four-hour show from 2-6pm will be co-presented by BBC Introducing’s Natalie-Eve Williams.

The new show will run up to and including 28th July.
Phil is currently keeping busy writing the comeback of Early Doors for its stage premiere at The Lowry theatre in Salford in August.
The much-anticipated show sold out in super-quick time when it was announced for The Lowry and further dates were added to cope with demand.

Managing Editor of BBC Radio Manchester, Kate Squire, said: “We’re sure our listeners will love the warm wit of Phil with our Natalie-Eve from BBC Introducing.
“Phil is a legend in Manchester for bringing us the fantastic series Early Doors and we’re really looking forward to having him present Summer Saturdays.”
