His radio show is filled with high-jinx, stunts and laughs. 

And Greg James was again throwing himself into the kooky side of the show as he wowed fans by fulfilling his promise to take a heartbroken teacher to Wednesday night’s BRITs after she was dumped around Valentine’s Day.  

The Radio 1 Breakfast host chatted to primary school teacher Katie Woodward on the phone last week before making his vow to take her as his date to the awards.

When Greg, who is married to writer Bella Mackie, heard Katie’s tragic tale last week he was feeling particularly heartbroken for the scorned caller. 

She explained that she had been ditched by her boyfriend on eight months just a day before Valentine’s Day, as she explained: ‘To make it worse it’s his birthday next week and I’ve spent a lot, a lot of money on presents’.

After admitting her situation ‘sucked so bad’, Greg extended his invite to the BRITs, to which Katie responded: ‘Oh my goodness, I’m so up for it. I’m free on Wednesday because my plans have gone now, and this has made me so much happier.’ 

After making good his promise, Greg took to social media on Wednesday to document his wild night with the listener in a series of sweet snaps.

During his August debut, the former Drivetime host impressed fans during his debut shot at the coveted 6am to 10am slot, with listeners praising Greg for ‘smashing it’ and saying he’d made them look forward to getting up in the mornings.

‘To host the Radio 1 Breakfast Show has always been a dream of mine and 20 years in the making. This is the most famous radio show in the world and it’s a privilege to share it with you every morning.’

Greg started his glittering radio career aged just 14 when he first went live on a local hospital radio and presented several student radio shows while at university before his big break on BBC Radio 1 in 2007.
