6.30am Show starts with the special Carlisle Cheesy Song

6.33am The live cameras are switched on. Dave is on time today! Chris points out his 'pirate sleep scar', and the team discuss if there's a way to get rid of it. (Massage is in fact the best way - I suffer from this affliction too!) Chris then mentions that he watched Greg's show on the red button yesterday, and found it to be "weirdly addictive".

6.35am The team discuss yesterday's activities. Several team members went to play cricket with Greg James, against Carlisle's local team. The Radio 1 team won, which Dave admits is because the opposition let them! Chris and Aled didn't partake, and instead played a game of 'guess the TV theme tune' in the house with Will Kinder. Dave and Dom also went busking with Greg James in Carlisle town centre, and cameras and local press turned up to witness the occasion. More on this later in the show.

6.45am Conversation turns to the team's visit to the local pub last night. Aled comments that Rhys had lots of fans there, and then they notice his absence. They briefly discuss going to wake him in the manner of Dave yesterday, but then see that he is in fact outside. It is then pointed out that Matt's absent, and they discuss whether he should be up. Chris offers Tina £100 to get into bed with him but she's not keen, so he asks if anyone else wants to push him out of bed or bundle him.

6.50am Chris reveals that the show won Bronze at the Sony Radio Awards last night, beaten into third place by Frank Skinner and Ronnie Wood. They congratulate Robbie Savage, Zane Lowe and Annie Nightingale on their wins - you can see a full list of winners here. Chris then talks about the run he and Aled went on yesterday - they ran 5.5k. Chris adds that he then had pie and chips in the pub!

6.55am The team all wave at the camera and criticise Dave's waving technique.

7.37am Conversation returns to the Sony Awards, and Chris says that bronze winners now receive a perspex award. Dave asks if you also get a rosette and sash, like in horseriding. He then reveals that he once went riding, and Dom suggests that this is because he is the same height as a jockey. Dave strongly denies this, stressing that he is five foot eight and a half (don't forget the half!)

7.47am Aled starts Rob DJ's Pub Quiz music early, as the preceding song was very short and Chris is still outside. He confesses to panicking as he's not in the usual studio. Chris remarks that Aled was also stressed about his meal of bangers and mash in the pub last night, and also wanted to leave early. Chris says that this has caused Sam to be in a bad mood, but she says she's just annoyed that they failed to win a Sony. Dave agrees that Sam is indeed very competitive.

8.47am This link is supposed to discuss what the team are doing today, but Sam decrees that they can't reveal the details. Instead, Chris wants to talk about Matt being drunk last night. Aled says that Matt snored so loudly that he was forced to wake him up and push him onto his side. Matt suggests that Aled use earplugs, and Aled retorts that Matt shouldn't drink so much. Matt then tells Aled to put the toilet seat down. However, they quickly reconcile, to Chris' disappointment.
