Annie Nightingale has entered the Guinness World Records book for serving the longest career as a female radio presenter.
The DJ is still a member of the team at Radio 1 – forty years after she joined the station as its first female disc jockey.
Nightingale was presented with the honour by former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, who paid tribute to her career.
"Annie is a true icon of British Radio,” he told BBC Newsbeat. “She's been on Radio 1 since before I was born.
"Good on her for getting this record. I hope she's still here in another 40 years!"
Nightingale, who was awarded an MBE in 2002, currently presents the 2am-4am slot on Friday mornings.
