Dom says that Davina McCall is, via Twitter, supporting his campaign to get Ronan Keating's Life Is A Rollercoaster back in the charts. Chris says that he received some tweets about Go West's chart progress, but then adds that he isn't sure if Go West is the Village People's best song; they then discuss the band's back catalogue.

He put a photo of his chili on Twitter, and says that Jamie oliver tweeted him to say that it looked good.

6.55am Texts are coming in saying that V has been cancelled. Chris is annoyed by this. Dave suggests that people should be able to find out in advance if a show will be cancelled, so that they'll know before they commit their time to watching it.
