Radio 1’s Greg James completes the giant puzzle Hove Lagoon

BBC Radio 1’s Greg James has completed a giant jigsaw puzzle after a six day search for jigsaw pieces.

While broadcasting from Hove Lagoon for Radio 1 Games last week, Greg was escorted out of a studio, removed from his breakfast show and told the only way he could regain his presenting duties was to complete a giant jigsaw puzzle.

A total of 20 tracks were scattered across the UK, discovered by listeners and delivered to Greg in Hove.

Pieces have been discovered at the Amex stadium for the Lionesses Quarter-Final game against Spain, in a shark tank at SeaLife Brighton, in a block of ice in Cardiff and on the roof of the Radio 1 studios in Hove Lagoon.

The final piece was discovered buried on the beach near Hove Beacon and metal detector Simon Cox helped Greg locate it.

Viewers applauded and cheered as Greg donned his waders and placed the final piece into a floating puzzle frame – completing the Radio 1 logo puzzle.

Thanking the audience for helping him complete the puzzle, Greg said: “That was absolute nonsense, but we did it. I feel so defeated.”

Among those who offered to help was Zoe Ball’s 14-year-old daughter Nelly, who both live in Hove.

Greg celebrated by lying exhausted flat on the puzzle as it floated in the lagoon.

Scott Mills and Chris Stark, who had hosted the Radio 1 Breakfast Show in his absence, officially handed control to Greg after solving the puzzle – this will be the last time the duo will host the slot.

Both Scott and Chris are leaving Radio 1, while Scott is moving to Radio 2 and Chris is moving to Capital.

Upon returning to the studio, Greg spoke to the couple: “I really loved doing this with you guys this week. It was hard and awful and weird, but it was also so much fun playing around with you two – you two are two of the greatest of all time.” Radio 1’s Greg James completes the giant puzzle Hove Lagoon
