Why wasn’t Greg James on air at Radio 1 this morning?

BBC Radio 1’s Greg James was due back to present his Breakfast Show this morning but wasn’t able to make it.

Early Breakfast host Arielle Free sat in for Greg after finishing her own show, then continued until 10am.

Greg, who has been away on holiday, was unable to return because he revealed he’s tested positive for coronavirus.

Posting on Twitter earlier, Greg posted: “Not a classic end to a (very delayed) honeymoon tbh .

Thanks to the @BBCR1 gang for rallying in the early hours and to @ariellefree

for covering the breakfast show. Hoping to feel better and sort something from my house tomorrow 🤞🏼

Back to bed 😐”

The tweet included another picture with a definite message!

Best wishes Greg and hope you’re feeling better soon.
