Return To Virgin
It was also during this period that Virgin Radio's new management had re-hired Abbot to cover various shows on the station. He also took over the evening show for 6 weeks during the summer of 1997 as well as being used as holiday cover. In early 1998, Abbot took over the weekday afternoon show on Virgin Radio from 1-4 pm, whilst still continuing with his Saturday evening show on Talk Radio. In May 1998 as well as his daily show on Virgin Radio, Abbot took over the weekday evening show on Talk Radio UK from 7–9 pm, which meant he presented two shows a day.
Between March and September 1999, local London station LBC hired both Abbot & McGiffin for a Saturday evening phone-in show, similar in format to the duo's earlier Talk Radio stint. During this time, Abbot continued working for Virgin Radio as a DJ. Throughout the summer of 2000, Abbot presented a Sunday morning phone in show on Virgin, while continuing to host the daily afternoon show. Later in the year, he moved to the drive time slot until leaving Virgin once again in May 2001. He also acted as holiday cover for Chris Evans
