Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Laura Sayers
As well as being an assistant, Laura occasionally produced shows for Scott Mills, JK and Joel and Sara Cox. At the end of March 2008, Laura was promoted to a new position within Radio 1 as producer of Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates' weekend shows, which includes the official chart show.
More DetailsHide DetailsFor a time she was the assistant producer of the Nick Grimshaw show, Monday - Thursdays 10pm-midnight. She produced Huw Stephens' two Wednesday night shows and subsequently replaced producer Neil as Greg James' producer.
During October 2005, when the team were temporarily presenting The Chris Moyles Show, Laura's sister Mary Sayers, who had found Laura's teenage diaries in her bedroom at her family house in York, was asked to read the diaries out on air.
The team decided to carry this feature on again when they next covered for Moyles during January 2006 and began Season 2, entitled "The College Years".
Because of the success of the diary on Radio 1, Laura's Diary was released to the public as a book on Thursday 30 November 2006.
Potential partners were asked to fill in a form on BBC Radio 1's website and, because of the success, on the last week of March 2006 a tour known as 'One Night with Laura' took place in Southampton, Cardiff, Nottingham, Newcastle and Glasgow.
More DetailsHide DetailsThe contestants had to impress Laura, and a panel of judges, enough for those to decide that they were right for her. This included many strange occurrences such as a contestant lying on a bed of nails and asking Sayers to stand on his back.
On the judging panel was Scott, Laura, her father Stephen and Mark "Chappers" Chapman. On the last two nights Chapman, who had other commitments, was replaced by Laura's sister, Mary, and Jo Whiley. The auditionees came and went and were whittled down to just four partners from each of the auditions in Southampton, Cardiff, Nottingham and Newcastle (nobody qualified from Glasgow). These were Ben, James, Gareth and Shep. James was the first person to be voted out by the public.
Each of the final three were paraded on Radio 1 over a week of breakfast shows, participating in tasks and taking part in interviews to try to win over their all important votes. The final took place on 2006-04-07 and saw Gareth from Chard win the public vote.
This season consisted of many weird and rude codes, and the revalation of her love of her piano teacher in 1996.
More DetailsHide Details'Laura's Diary' became such a hit with Scott's listeners, it was moved to the afternoon show. Season 3 saw Laura meet Ben from her brother's band Monster Sunshine. They tried for a relationship but subsequently she moved to Glasgow for university.
In Season 4, Laura talks of troubles at university and the woes of attempting to have a long distance relationship with Ben. The season ends with Ben dumping Laura by letter.
Mills joked a couple of times during the readings that because Laura was "unlucky in love" he would make it his mission to help her. This led to the hit Radio 1 tour 'One Night With Laura' - an 'X Factor' style tour of the UK auditioning suitable boyfriends for Sayers.
