Announcing that applications are now open on the Late Late Show website, the presenter told listeners: "We are going to go large this year. I had a great chat about it last week, and it's going to be very, very special indeed."

Offering advice to young applicants, DJ Calum said: "Just be yourself. Take your time. Have fun. And practice and make sure your video is ok! Even just a half an hour, fifteen minutes a day - that's all it takes."

Having supported DJ Jenny Greene at her Iveagh Gardens show during the summer, Calum added that he is very busy with "communions, confirmations, even 21sts, weddings".
