About the Show

Ginger and Nuts hail from the Midlands and bring their unique fun show to Shuffle 2.

Ginger and Nuts present ‘The Happy Place’ in their unique bid to get people smiling again. Let’s fact it, it’s been a tough few months! The fun-filled two-hours are bulging at the seams with banter, quirky stories, guests, competitions and feel-good tunes from all decades.

Married in real life, the unpredictable duo (Darren and Katherine) throw every ounce of energy into their shows under the persona ‘Ginger and Nuts’. It seems listeners love the saucy pair.

Over the years, they’ve interviewed the likes of Gloria Gaynor, Marty Wilde, Britt Ekland, John Challis ‘Boycie’ and the late Sir Ken Dodd, as well as other big names.

They’ve also worked in partnership with Disney, Marvel, Lush, Shark Ninja and Empire Cinemas, as well as Lovehoney and Bondara!

Darren worked for West Midlands Police for 26 years doing their marketing and PR. He has also presented on BBC TV with Alan Titchmarsh. However, more recently, he supported his friend, Michael Barrymore, as part of ITV1s Life Stories with Piers Morgan. Michael also co-hosted one of Darren’s shows with him in Birmingham.

Away from the mic, he struggles with chronic anxiety and suffers from Arthritis, Spine Disease, and Fibromyalgia. This causes chronic pain throughout the body and debilitating exhaustion.

Katherine has had seven miscarriages which has been really challenging at times.

They both use the radio as their ‘escape’ mechanisms.
