5 live igloo in Hull

It's stopped raining.

The igloo is open and full of children from across the area. It's great to see it in action at last.

Nicky did our first show from Hull this morning, broadcasting live from the KC Stadium, with under pressure Hull manager Phil Brown as his guest. You can watch video of that on the site shortly along wiith Nicky having his fitness test with Hull Kingston Rovers.

The Hull minisite is live with loads of photos and videos from the events, please check it out.

Our next broadcast will be at 1pm when Simon Mayo comes live from the Ferens Art Gallery. We'll be kicking off with John Prescott as a guest, the BNP and the Postal strike likely to be the hot topics of conversation. There's also John Godber from the Hull Truck Theatre Company and there will be the usual book panel after 3pm.

You can watch the whole show live on the 5 live website or if you're in the area on the big screen in the city centre.

Later on, it will be our live Q&A with Lord Coe from 1815 and you can also watch that live.

Meanwhile as i write Abi Titmuss is live on BBC Radio Humberside in the Ferens which has caused a sudden exodus of several males from the office...
