Every presenter of The Official Chart Show on BBC Radio 1

Look back at every famous voice that has counted down the Top 40 across Radio 1's half century on the airwaves.

The Official Chart Show on BBC Radio 1 is one of the institutions of British broadcasting; and the only place each week to discover the UK's Official Number 1 single and album. 

Ever since October 1, 1967, the Official Singles Chart has been presented on the station, whether that be under the guise of Pick of the Pops, Tom Browne's Solid Gold 60 show, or in the current format of the Official Chart.

17 presenters have been the face of the Top 40 over the years, including 15 men, three women, and two duos. The show has also played host to fair few guest presenters, including royalty, who have all had a go at the Top 10 countdown (who can forget Duchess of Cambridge Kate's announcement of Drake's Passionfruit at Number 5? Or the time Jameela Jamil presented The Saturdays with their Number 1 award dressed as a chicken?).

As we welcome Jack Saunders into the Official Charts family as the next host of the Official Chart Show, here's a look at every presenter of The Official Chart Show on BBC Radio 1.
