Radio 1’s Greg James delights the masses with surprise appearance on-stage at Coldplay’s final Wembley gig
Greg James is one lucky bugger after managing to make it on-stage at Wembley before Coldplay themselves. The Paradise hitmakers – featuring Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion – have been entertaining thousands of fans at London’s Wembley Stadium on a six-night run as part of their Music of the Spheres World Tour. It’s been a cracking residency so far with the likes of Craig David, Natalie Imbruglia and even Alan Partridge joining the rock band as surprise guests during the shows. They may have saved the best until last with BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg appearing during Coldplay’s final night at Wembley on Sunday. Concert-goers shared photos on social media of Greg, 36, doing the honours of introducing Coldplay to the stage and, needless to say, his fans were loving his surprise cameo. ‘@gregjames you’ve won in this life,’ one fan cheered on Twitter. The incredible @gregjames of @BBCR1 introducing Coldplay for the final night of #ColdplayWembley ð¤ | via @JohnnySeifert pic.twitter.com/lLbjX9GeWNAnother joined in: ‘I love Greg what a great start.’ ‘@gregjames give Chris a hug for me,’ one fan quipped. It comes after actor and comedian Steve Coogan surprised the mass audience when he joined the band in character as Alan Partridge to sing Kate Bush and Abba hits on Saturday night. The 56-year-old commanded the stage beside frontman Chris to belt out Bush’s iconic hit Running Up That Hill, as well as Abba’s Knowing Me, Knowing You. Partridge hilariously wore a red satin jacket with the words ‘Snow Patrol’ on the back.He told the crowd: ‘Running up hills, up roads – it’s all cardiovascular.

Gladiators Jet star brands Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge a 'liar' over Shakira snub

Zoe Ball taken aback as Steve Coogan slams Radio 2 in Alan Partridge chat: 'Lost its way!'
BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show in character as Alan Partridge. In true Partridge style, ‘Alan’ told a series of jokes and couldn’t help but take the opportunity to skewer the radio station.The skit began with Zoe informing listeners that a caller named “Alan” was on the line.Listeners then heard Steve Coogan’s distinctive voice asking Zoe to put him “through to the duty manager”.He continued: “I want to speak to the duty manager about the show and the state of it.“I’ve got a few concerns.”Zoe responded reluctantly: “Ok, is this something that I can help with...”‘Alan’ let out a long sigh and said despondently: “Zoe, I’ll level with you, I haven’t listened to Radio 2 since Dale Winton left.“I am only listening today because I am touring the country with my live show and the bus driver likes it, and he’s big.”Zoe chuckled and said: “Well, I’m glad you are listening again Alan,” to which he quipped: “Well that makes one of us!”The host sounded taken aback and gasped: “Oh, oh!”Explaining his issues with the radio station, ‘Alan’ remarked: “I just feel like the entire station has lost its way.“It just doesn’t feel like Radio 2 anymore, people want to know who your station is aimed at.“6 Music [is for] Guardian readers in their 40s who ride skateboards.
