Life has been hectic for CBBC presenter Jake Humphrey.
In the last two years he's presented Fame Academy, Rule The School,
Against All Odds, The Saturday Show and BAMZOOKi.
Despite his busy schedule, Jake returned to his
Norfolk roots to spend Christmas with his family and dropped in
to present a show on BBC Radio Norfolk whilst he was here.
Co-hosting the show was Fame Academy favourite
Alistair Griffin, a good mate of Jake's since the reality TV series.
Throughout the two-hour programme, Al performed
in Griffin Karaoke, to people calling the show for live song requests.
Jake flipped through the phone-book on his moby
and called up a few celebrity mates to see how their Christmas went,
including Top Of The Pops presenter Fearne Cotton, Harry Potter
star Chris Rankin and Norwich City club captain Craig Flemming.
Craig said he'd enjoyed a family Christmas, but
felt robbed on Boxing Day as the Canaries lost in a 2-0 defeat against
"In the first half I think we played probably
as well as we have all year. I think we were outstanding in the
first half, but in the second it didn't happen," he said.
"We did everything but score a goal, but at
that level if you don't score goals then sooner or later they'll
come and take the points. It was disappointing," he added.
When Jake dropped a hint about getting a game with
the Canaries, it didn't look too promising.
"I've seen you play football mate. You'd be
right down of the list of people we'd call, I can tell you,"
During the show, people listening around the country
via this website, were keen to wish Alistair all the best for 2005
and find out what he's up to next.
"I think it's important to play lots of gigs.
As far as Fame Academy student go, I'm the only person who's got
out there and done what it's all about. We've done some very big
concerts in the north which have been very well received,"

"It's all about having your songs heard and
playing live. Playing live is very important.
"For me, Top Of The Pops was a bit ridiculous.
It's billed as this big thing on TV and I went on and had to sing
over a backing track, I was a bit disappointed. It's
very frustrating when doing the rounds on TV and not really being
able to play live.
"It's just really very important, especially
when you come from something like Fame Academy, that you're not
just some Muppet on the telly - because people will bracket you
in that category.
"It's always important to underline I play
the songs, I write the songs, I'm singing them live and my voice
is all right. Otherwise you just get cast aside," he added.
