Friday - It's Kay Day!

Peter Kay was live and unleashed on the show and he brought with him the warm-up act from his tour, 80s singing sensation Rick Astley, who sang live.

On today's show we are joined by not one, but two showbiz stars who helped Chris co-host the show. Peter Kay was live and unleashed on the radio - and he brought with him his warm-up act from his tour as well - Mr Rick Astley.

Peter promised to make us laugh and he didn't fail, and Rick sang acoustic versions of 'Never Gonna Give You Up' and 'When I Fall in Love'.
