David Walliams joins us for Breakfast

Chris welcomes comic king David Walliams to the Brekkie studio, flautist Simeon Wood makes music from a converted crutch, and Emma Stevens drops by with her ukelele.

We welcome David Walliams to the Brekkie studio. This Renaissance man-about-town, tells us about his journey from LITTLE Britain, to BIG School, by way of the English Channel.

And we're all about the Friday Feeling today, in a show packed full of guests! First up, it's a Friday Fanfare for a future star of the tennis world! Watch out Andy Murray, Ed Searle is hot on your heels, and smashing it on the court.

We meet Simeon Wood, a professional flautist who makes music from a converted crutch, while the sweet-singing, inexplicably-unsigned, Emma Stevens drops by with her slightly more conventional ukulele.

Plus today's Pause for Thoughter, Canon Ann Easter, takes a George Bernard Shaw quote for the starting point of her celebration of play!
