‘He’s a dirty little no-show!’ Greg James fails to turn up to his Radio 1 Breakfast Show at 6:30am after a night partying at the BRIT Awards 2020… and his wife Bella Mackie reveals he never made it home
Greg James failed to show up to his Breakfast Show on Radio 1 on Wednesday morning, after a wild night of partying at the BRIT Awards 2020.
The presenter was a no-show when his show came on air at 6:30am, leaving his colleague Adele Roberts to take over, after presenting her own early show from 4am.
Adele told listeners Greg was ‘a dirty little no-show’ as the team desperately tried to track down their star and his wife, writer Bella Mackie, later tweeted that her husband had never made it home.

‘Good morning everybody it’s Radio 1 Breakfast with Adele Roberts,’ Adele began the show. ‘I can’t actually believe this is happening. Greg James is a no-show, a dirty little no-show, has anyone seen him?’
‘I’ve been trying to keep an eye on all of our little Radio 1 chickens this morning,’ she continued revealing she had been keeping tabs on her colleagues on social media as they partied.
‘The last time I saw him was on Grace, who used to work on Radio 1 Breakfast, on her Instagram about six hours ago, around midnight. If you do spot him please do send him our way. I saw a flash of him with Yannis from Foals.’

Where is he? Adele told listeners Greg was ‘a dirty little no-show’ as the team desperately tried to track down their star who was pictured on the red carpet on Tuesday night at London’s O2
Later as it became apparent Greg was not on his way in, Adele joked she’d be filling in for all of Radio 1’s schedule of shows after fellow presenters Matt Edmondson, Mollie King, Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw all spent their Tuesday night partying at the BRITs.
‘We can’t find anybody, I’ll be on for everybody!’ she laughed.
Radio 1’s Arielle Free turned up to the studio at 7am in her dressing gown to help out along with Sunday presenter Jordan North, with the pair surviving on a couple of hours sleep.
A clue? BRIT winners Foals provided the last sighting of Greg, sharing an Instagram from the ceremony telling Greg ‘we won you are coming with us’
Partying: Greg’s former Radio 1 collegaue Grace Hopper shared a photo of the pair drinking, as she joked ‘he’s on the radio in 6 hours’
Fun times: Sara Cox, who used to work with Greg on Radio 1, also shared a photo fo the pair partying together
Matt Edmondson was also called in to head to the studio, turning up in the t-shirt he slept in after a night of partying, telling listeners he was ‘borderline furious’ to be called in.
‘I got back from holiday yesterday morning, didn’t sleep on the flight then went to the BRITs and now I’m here… I’m ticked off. I got a call from a boss…he said “Adele’s here but she’s been on for hours and we kind of need someone to come in”. I said “have you tried anyone else?”‘
‘I then found our Jordan and Arielle here…but our boss said “please still come in, we’ve had to send Arielle home because she’s drunk and Jordan’s voice has gone!”‘.

Ouch: Jordan was still in his suit as he did his best to help out live on air, sharing updates on Instagram

Adele reassured listeners at 8:30am that Greg ‘is very much safe and sound and very much asleep at the moment’, while Jordan cheekily quipped ‘he’s also very much in trouble.’
As the show wore on, the presenters began to get suspicious Greg was playing a prank, following Radio 1’s past high jinks which has seen the star play a nationwide game of hide and seek on air.
In the end Greg didn’t make it for the duration of his show, with Clara Amfo, who was also at the awards, managing to make it for the start of her show at 10am.
