Good Morning Great Britain and Thanks For Tuning In

Chris Evans | 11:00 UK time, Monday, 17 May 2010

So it appears that there are a few people who quite like what we do on the radio in the mornings. Thank the Lord for that.

Let me tell you, we were all so pleased and grateful to hear the good news about our listening figures last week. It was the kind of news we didn't even dare to dream about when we took over from Sir Tel.

I still can hardly believe the numbers, but of course we have been in this game a long time and for the same reasons we didn't panic in the beginning - we know not to start crowing now. The race is long and we are all very well aware of that.

Our ratings will go up, as they just have, but no doubt they will also go down at some point in the future - that's the nature of the beast. All we can do in between is do the best show we can every single day we are allowed on the radio.

Having access to a BBC microphone is never a right, it is only ever a privilege, something I have finally come to realise - what a learning curve that was !

Onwards my friends, onwards.

    A thousand well dones on the figures. Well done for not crowing. x

    Hurrah!! Huge congratulations Christoff and hear hear to all of the above, as always. It's a wise man who treats all people with respect on the way up the ladder of success; because you sure as hell will meet 'em on the way back down...

    Any road up. It's greetings from a beautifully sunny and thus far ash-free Cork, best be off now to try to extract this angry wasp that obviously crawled into me left ear as I slept and is now roarin' an' batterin' on me skull tryin' to get out.

    Good morning everyone from a beautifully sunny Ayrshire.

    Great to have you back CLP, and very well done on the figures.

    Had a lovely weekend, lots of riding and walking done as usual.

    Have a good day everyone.

    Welcome back CLP - it was so nice to smile this morning (not that I've spent the last 2 weeks not smiling but this was a more comfortable smile).

    Great to have you back Chris and the team, and very well done on the listening figures, I just knew they would be good.

  • Comment number 15.

    Welcome back CLP. I couldnt stand it for your first week as it was very quiet with the radio turned off. Second week was better as I was away myself on hols. Got all excited at the thought of getting stuck in Tenerife when they closed the airport on Wednesday but unfotunately it reopened Thursday morning.

    Hope everyone is well.


  • Comment number 16.

    Pen: re: your check up - not the best start to a week for you, I am sure. x Enjoy your coffee!

    Thunder: typical, eh? Just when you wanted that ash cloud to hang around, it cleared! Hope you had a lovely holiday.

    Good Morning CLP Man & ALL Blog Peoples Of The CLP BBC Blog.....

    Bingo Star ere......

    CLP - Firstly let me wish you most authoritatively warm conradulations & sentimentations of welldoneness to yersen!!!!!!!!!!

    WELL DONE!!!!!!!!

    What for you may ask.... a will tell yer.... for getting back from Portugal & avoiding the volcanic ash cloud!!!!!

    Also a would like ter wish the same above sentimentations for yer listener figures being upward in a most friendly way!!!!!!

    As much az a thought Sir Tel waz briliant, a legend in broadcasting.... a loved listening to 'is shows & still do on a Sundee.... but the thing a think yer doing different with the breakfast gig CLP iz attracting more of a younger audience aswell az 'anging onter 'opefully most of Sir Tels Togs!!!!!!!

    A great idea CLP getting kiddy winkles ringing in each morning!!!!!!

    Also CLP... not in a sycophantic way at all.... but a wanter say reaaly like ALL that yerv written above.... a maturing DJ me thinks!!!!

    Just don't mature too fast or yer might lose some of yer younger audience that are VERY much tuning in!!!!!!


    PS Super B - BIG CONGRATES on the Moonwalk on Saturdee!!!!
    No easy feat am tellin' yer... a personally think it would be easier ter gently jog 26 miles rsther than walk... as it seems faster/ less distance if yer moving faster!!!!
    Ter walk 26 miles.... AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The thing iz 'ow do we sponser yersen??????

    PS Ave recently entered the ballot for next year's London Marathon & am in touch with some children's charity's.... just wondering 'ow a can raise the amount they require az a don't know enough people ter sponser me!!!!!!
    More problems & stress!!!!! LOL!!!!!

    PPS Chezza - Glad ter 'ear yerv found some work... good luck & 'ope it all goes most friendly!!!!!!!

    Algebra confuses me az there's so many different angles to it... and trigonometry confuses me..... as there are also many 'angles' to it!!!! LOL!!!

    If am 'onest a 'ave noot goot a clue 'ow do do the exma if it's like last year's.... but a really wanter getta a 'A' grade after me good exam results from March!!!!!!
    So am gonna get boring & make maths me life for the next four weeks!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Chrissie

    Yes, my fate is now in the lap of the gods - or, to put it another way, my application is now with HR..... the assessment will be later in the week and the decision made next week. Everything crossed please!!! (you can take a break every hour or so to avoid cramping).

    Yo yo Big Chief CLP,

    Well done, old bean, well done . . .

    Glad you had a good rest and made a wee quick purchase or two of fine Italian wheels along the way (understatement of the year . . .) to celebrate . . .

    I think last the last seven days , in your entire history of seven days' happenings must go down as one of the best . . .

    Well done, well done... to one and all . . .

    Afternoon One and ALl

    Been right poorly for nearly a month and hopefull now turning the corner!
    Glad your back Christoph and had a fabby dabby holiday.
    Just been reading the papers and got REALLY cross - some whinger moaning about the price you paid for your car. You earnt it so you spend it - I say sod them - it's green cheese and big horns! Some folk just can't see you getting on/enjoying yourself.

    Life my friend is FAR FAR TOO SHORT - Just buried a long time friend of mine and she was only 41.

    Sieze the moment, savour and enjoy - tomorrow is another day.


  • Comment number 31.


    Band of helpers duly dispatched on their hairyplanes outa Cork, angry wasp dispatched wit a blast a Nurofen, white puddin' an' beans, so all is well.

    Now then Baggy. Glad the aul bustenhalter didn't chafe, I bet yous looked a picture; well done indeed!!!

    Am now off to Killarney to meet up wit the girls I met whilst doing me diploma, the spectacularly named Grainne (pronounced Gronnya, as in Grainne Bike), Oona and Fionnula. Marvellous.

    Shall be passin' on the vino collapso, like; makin' a holy show a meself once is enough for me at this stage. Twice in 2 days an' I'll be hangin' me liver on the front a the boat home tomorrow.

    Hope everyone is well and not suffering too much with travel problems due to the ash again.

    MTF .well done on the no.1post .

    Take care all.


  • Comment number 34.

    Glad to have you ALL back. You've been missed.

    Good luck with your maths Bingo. My OH is a bit of a maths whizz so shout up if you need a hand with anything.

    Beez - why don't you put the bolt hole in a trust for bloggers? It could be renamed Bloggers' Retreat!!! We could hold mass blog meets there. A blog therapy centre? Put Clodagh in there as the Blog Agony Aunt. It'd be a raging success!

    I'm defo off to the gym now - provided train makes it all the way home today.



  • Comment number 35.

    Christoph - the best thing is that there may be millions of people listening but it doesn't feel like it. I mean that in a good way - the show feels like it's just for a little gang of friends. Now I know just how big the gang is I don't mind that you never play my gobsmackers :-)

  • Comment number 36.

    Hi y'all,

    Good to have you back Chris, great fun this morning, although I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Graham Norton this last fortnight too. Excellent news re.figures, but it's good to see you're keeping your feet on the ground.

    Good good good.

    Hi Bridge, not seen you for a while x

    Baggy, awesome girl - hope you're not hurting too much x

    Chezza - went the day well? Did you have a sneaky lurk? Good luck x

    Not much to say here so won't say much.

    Just this - I don't normally watch footie (sorry Sunderland-mad-family, I think you must have found me in a basket, and sorry Gillingham fan husband too, you know I've tried but I just don't like it) but I stumbled upon the end of the cup final the other day and I have two questions:

    Does everyone who interviews a manager or player from another European country always talk to him very slowly, in a sing songy, almost "foreign" accent, even when there is an interpreter standing by? Or was it just the one I saw?

    What's this with tickertape? What a pointless, wasteful, environmentally unfriendly mess. Sorry, I know it's probably been going on for years but it's the first time I've spotted it so I thought I'd try on those ranty pants which keep being passed around the blog (hope someone washes them from time to time). Who clears it up? Does anyone really want it? Were the public actually asked? I demand a referendum.

    Ah that's better.

    Hope everyone is enjoying a little bit of sunshine with more to come - yahoo!

    Afternoon CLP and everyone else, and congratulations again on your listening figures. You should all be so proud, especially after taking over from the likes of Sir Tel. Hope you had fun on your break, and well done on beating the ash cloud to boot (I did too, Mother Nature didn't spoil my 30th birthday, hurrah!). Have you taken the new car out for a spin yet?

    Well done Baggy for completing the Moonwalk!

    How has your first day at work been Cheryl?

    Hope everyone has had a good Monday,


  • Comment number 38.

    Hello CLP and All Bloggers.

    A lovely sunny day here on the Wirral Peninsula.

    Big Congratulations Chris on the figures, of course you are the No.1 DJ but I'm glad you're not crowing, merely tweeting!

    Also congratulations on your Italian souveniour. However, if you invite me for a leisurely drive I will have to decline your very kind invitation as I would be scared to eat my burger and chips in such a breathtakingly beautiful car.

    Hope all are keeping well.


  • Comment number 39.


    It's good to have you back Chris, and well done again on the listening figures! Excellent!

    Change of plan here tonight. Mr JG has a bit of dodgy stomach, so didn't fancy traipsing around the shope, so we'll go another night instead.

    Nice to see everyone back! Hope everyone is fine and dandy?

    Evening all

    Had a great day yesterday, lots of fun and laughter. Little boy called both babies Emma. It took a while before Mr CSN could get them all together for a photo because girls were trying to feed crying babies, boys were chatting and I was looking after little boy and girl who were running around causing havoc!

    Girls would like to send all blog Aunties big hugs and a big thank you to Tiggs for all her hard work. xx

    Mr CSN, kindly put some photos on fb this morning, while he was doing this I was having a chat with daughter about yesterday. After our phone call, she found her little boy had been drawing her a lovely picture with a black crayon all over the dinning room table and was sitting on the floor washing his hands with a cup of milk. Oh what joys we have to come!

    MTD, fingers crossed for you.

    Baggy, Well done.

    MTF, sending you big hugs.xx

    Evening friends

    Just had a quick catch up and thank you for all the good luck and how'd it go messages. I am pleased to report that it went very well indeedy - the 5 hours passed in a flash! I am actually doing some admin work (whilst on the reception) for the company I had an interview at last week I'm kind of hoping it will give me a head-start over other candidates as it's a lovely environment to work in - a very swish new office building, more akin to Canary wharf than Cannock! I'm looking forward to going back tomorrow as my confidence is growing with every task I undertake.

    And it feels good!

    And the best bit? I was home by 5.10!

    I watched that dramatisation about Boy George when I got home - did any of you see it last night? Fantastic 80s soundtrack and Marc Warren playing Steve Strange was amazing! It kicked up some things I never knew about George and kind of explains stuff he's done. I s'pose it kind of got me "on side", and I'd be really interested to know how much input George himself (and the other prominent names of the day who were represented) had on the script and accuracy. Nice one Beeb2 - really enjoyed that.

    Nic's at the gym at the mo and the marinara sauce is gently bubbling away on the hob waiting for the "on my way" text so I can put the spaghetti on.

    All in all, it's been a great day.

    Muchos amore

  • Comment number 46.

    Thank you but don't cut off your circulation x

    CSN I just love the photos and your grandson and oldest granddaughter look far to cute to get up to any mischief but I know you know better. It must be hard for your little grandson to understand that there are not two Emmas. Defs hands full time when they are all together especially as they all get older.

    JG are you still managing to extend your choice of food?

  • Comment number 47.

    Yes thanks Susan, I've managed pasta and bolognese sauce today, baked in the oven with grated cheese on the top.

    I think, as long I don't try anything too crunchy or sharp, too hot or too cold, I'll be fine now - oh, and no chocolate yet, as that seems to flare the wounds up!

    I even managed to dunk a biccie in tea yesterday and eat it!

    JG x

  • Comment number 48.

    That's always a good sign when you enjoy the biccie in the tea. Sounds like you are slowly getting there x

  • Comment number 49.

    JG and Susan, It's hard enough work now, god knows what it will be like in a couple of years time!

    JG, hope everything is healing up nicely and you are starting to eat a bit more food.

    Hi Chris,

    I just wanted to say thank you for a really wonderful breakfast show. Glad you stuck to your guns with the format, you are a talented guy who knows what works and what doesn't. I look forward to your next sporting challenge- the ice hockey was so funny and is still my favourite! Congratulations to you and the team on those superb listener figures and may you long continue to entertain the nation!

    Hello All- been a bit on the busy side today - to put it mildly!! Same as you Bids! The rant I had was it Thursday or Friday? - received at last correct documents today!! Poor postie offered to carry to the car to me at the sorting office!!!

    Not caught up properly yet.
    Thank goodness you are eating again JG!
    Feet under the table and already doing half the job - it's yours Deev!
    CSN - lovely pics on fb pleased you had a good day yesterday.
    Sus - all crossed hon for Thursday - it's happened before on blog - going for jobs and all getting all at once...
    Good to see you back Bings - like the new name - good luck with the maths - better you than me! I glaze over where maths involved!
    Hi Marj - missed out on seeing CLP's new 4 wheels not on twitter.
    Totally agree BG re the footie and the litter!
    Great the 30th went well Rosie - minus the dust thank goodness
    Amy - agree - feels like a wee group but quite a surprise to hear there are millions.
    Pip was thinking about letting bolt hole out to bloggers only - those who clean/garden/decorate etc etc but going to cut losses. Going to cut price if local family interested - less to the tax man - good for my conscience! Am not holding breath but you never know!
    Good to see you popping in Amy, Angie, Dan, Bly, Pen, Thunder, Shaun, Pen, Mary, Chrissie and all.
    How's the head Clodagh?

    Just reading last nights' musings with SK on in the background (waiting for CLP, you understand). So she plays Elvis' Girl Of My Best Friend and then follows it with the words "Ah, the Rolling Stones - they sound good don't they".

    Does she actually know what's on her playist?!?!

  • Comment number 61.

    A beautiful morning indeedio!

    It certainly helps put a spring in your step.

    No news as of yet on the swans and their imminent hatchings. Unfortuantely, my round hasn't taken me past their nest over the past week, lets hope I haven't missed the big day.

    I did however have a new client to see, which took me on a new route around the Chew Magna lake. What a stunning place, covering such a vast area.

    There were hundreds of ducks, coots, swans, seagulls etc...

    As I knew I was going to be going this way, I armed myself with a bag of suitable fodder. Mixed corn and grains and a seperate bag of bread. Bread is suppposed to be really bad for swans, so my plan was to avoid letting them have any.

    One swan however had different ideas!!!

    He eyed up one piece of bread that I had carefully aimed towards a Mallard drake. But as the drake got to it first, the swan did no more than pick the drake up by its beak and toss it around like a rag doll.

    I was horrified as he didn't seem as if he was going to let go. So I grabbed my bag of offerings (which wasn't heavy) and whacked the swan on the back to distract. He eventually dropped the drake, which staggered off in a drunken like manner and turned on me. He squared up to me and hissed right in my face, with neck stretched, he was the same height as me.

    I beat a hasty retreat to avoid any more antagonism.

    So much for the bread being bad for swans, that poor little drake didn't do to well on it either.

    Well, as it looks like being another lovely day, I guess its off to the garden to tend what needs tending. The forecast is not as good for tomorrow, so the indoor jobs can wait until then.

    I hope everyone has a lovely day and things turn out just the way they want them to.

    Lovely discussion about ingrowing toe nails Chris!!!!

    Ooh, have just spotted the fox sitting in the field over the road. he was there for almost 3 hours yesterday, patiently waiting outside the rabbit holes. I watched him for a while as its lovely to see a fox so close to the house, but luckily (for me) he didn't kill anything while I was watching.


  • Comment number 62.

    LOL, JG, I've just read your post which wasn't there when I started typing mine. ( my slow typing!)

    Best warn Mr JG that swanning around can be dangerous!!


  • Comment number 63.

    MTF, you really ought to get the gig at the Beeb presenting Springwatch!

    Right, I've just ordered a new pair of wellies as my 2007 festival wellies are somewhat cracked and well, knackered! Dithered and dallied as to what size to order - my actual size, or a size larger. Went for the size larger and just now hope they fit. Black with pink flowers on - so me!

    What's everyone up to today?



  • Comment number 64.

    good morning

    firstly thank you for all the good wishes regarding my walk - it really was nothing and trust me, if I can do it then anyone can do it. Total is up to £688 and still counting so thank you everyone - Bingo my website details are on fb - msg me if you need the link.

    Okay - full of cold - check, sore throat - check, lost voice - check, sore knee - check, blisters taken over foot - check, east 17 on ispold- check (thats really not my fault - heads will roll)

    Awww Baggy, I feel like a huge failure now. What do you mean "it was nothing" ..... it was 26.2 miles woman!!! That is something and then some.

    Enjoy your trip!

    Morning Lovlies

    Is such a beautiful morning here, absolutely gorgeous. Hope it is where you are too

    Deevs, nice to hear day one went well, sounds like a good start

    Baggy, did you get the blister plasters!! Sounds like you need them. Hope your trip goes well tonight. As you are off to Switzerland am sure some chocolate is in order!

    Right, best look busy in case some one comes to visit my lonely office.

    Hello All,

    Congrats on the figures Christoff - fully deserved, but a bit of a surprise at the same time ;-)

    Is anyone else finding the new homepage slightly frustrating? I used to have Blogs as one of my little sections on my homepage, but it's not an option anymore. Was far easier to see when people had updated blogs, rather than having to hunt for them...grrrrr....

    ...what a grumpy old man!!

    Seza - blister is too big for plasters - I have it banaged and hoping for the best! I don't actually like European choc but I do like toblerone so I think I'll have to indulge in that! I asked mr bp what he wanted me to bring back and he said a leggy blonde - grrrrrrrrrrr!

    Can anyone remember what spirit your meant to drink to make you feel better when full of cold - have a feeling its whisky or brandy but Baileys is sounding good too - seeing as I'm flying airfrance later I might as well have a snifter!

    when you are happy..

    no one sees your smile ..

    Morning all

    Just noticed that DDD had popped in - welcome back (you don't need to sneak in you know) and LOL.

    Baggy - I'd go for whisky myself (mind you I usually put it in warm milk, I don't think that airfrance will have any of that....)
