Greg James is stuck in the Radio 1 Escape Room

BBC Radio 1’s latest on-air promotion started on Monday morning and sees Greg James locked in a room needing help from listeners to get out.

Greg was taken away from his breakfast show before 8am, blindfolded and put in the back of a van. He later emerged in a locked room with a keypad on the door, requiring a six-digit code to open.

Scott Mills has taken over presenting of the show, with interaction between him and Greg on-air to explain what’s going on.

Greg has his phone and is tweeting some of the clues from the room. He also has a full studio suite to communicate, along with a laptop and access to tweets and texts sent to the station.

The whole event is being streamed live in vision on the Radio 1 website.

The promotion follows other similar events such as Hide and Seek with Greg and Nick Grimshaw, and the recent Pasty journey from the South of England to the North of Scotland.
