Yet again Greg James has found himself locked in a small space and needing Radio 1 listeners to help break him free.
The Breakfast host was pranked by fellow BBC chums Jordan North and Vick Hope, believing he was going on a sunny, summer road trip only to find himself locked in a campervan.

Forced to host his morning show from the campervan marooned on Blackpool Pleasure Beach, before it gets on its way and hits the road with him inside, the only way out is for Greg to enter the correct word into a keypad.
Breaking the news to Greg, Vick appeared on The One Show on Monday night where host Alex Jones confirmed: ‘This is officially a stitch-up.’
Now with 15 hours of campervan confinement under his belt, Greg has been given but a few clues in the form of songs that are somehow linked together, which so far have proven unsuccessful.

That followed an earlier escape room prank, which had Greg break free after 31 hours locked inside a teeny tiny studio, where he slept, ate, and hosted his show.
With the help of listeners, Claudia Winkleman, Jack Whitehall and, oddly, celeb chef Ainsley Harriott (of ‘why hello Jill’ fame), Greg was finally able to escape.

‘That was ridiculous and I’m so pleased I’m free, I can finally work out where I am, what my life is all about again.’
Sorry to say that wasn’t the end of his escape room days. At least this time he has a window…
