Proud to have our first judge confirmed 

York Mix Radio DJ – Victoria Charles 


Victoria has been a familiar voice on the Yorkshire radio scene for many years. Victoria entertains the public with Quizzical and a bit of a hit weekdays 9am-1pm. 


Victoria is well known for supporting local causes from charities to schools. What Victoria doesn’t know yet is she has to live in the winning shelter for the night. 

We are glad to have you on board
