Radio 1 presenter Greg James jumps into a shark tank for a giant puzzle piece

BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James will jump into a shark tank at the city’s aquarium today to retrieve a puzzle piece.

Removed from his breakfast show and escorted out of a studio near Hove Lagoon in an on-air prank earlier this week, Greg can only reclaim his presenting duties by completing a 20-piece jigsaw puzzle of the Radio 1 logo.

Pieces have been scattered across the UK, with the puzzle frame floating in the lagoon itself.

Today, Greg must dive into a shark tank after two Listers discover one of the puzzle pieces at Brighton’s SeaLife Aquarium.

The DJ had to jump off a very high diving board in Birmingham to collect another piece of the puzzle ahead of next week’s Commonwealth Games.

So far, more than half of the plays have been found, with sightings at Land’s End, the Binley Mega Chippy – a chip shop that rose to fame after going viral on TikTok, and Amex Stadium after a play on the Live Reportage was released by the BBC match between England and Spain earlier this week.

Greg was spotted in the lagoon yesterday surrounded by some of the floating jigsaw pieces that were collected by radio listeners and delivered to Hove.

Friends of Hove Lagoon secretary Sue Johnson said she was “delighted” that Radio 1 had chosen to base itself in the lagoon.

She said: “It was a real ‘family affair’ as Lagoon Watersports and Big Beach Cafe provided the hospitality and Nelly Cook participated in some of the programmes.

“Because it was so much fun we will forgive Radio 1 for calling the Lagoon a lake and locating us in Brighton – because we know it’s actually Hove.”

While Greg tries to solve the mystery, Scott Mills and Chris Stark have been hosting the Radio 1 Breakfast Show in his absence. The show will likely be among the duo’s final moments on the station, as Scott will take a slot at Radio 2 and Chris will join Capital in the fall.
