Chris Moyles hosts breakfast show suspended above the River Thames

Chris Moyles presented his Radio X show live from a cable car suspended 100s of feet above the River Thames in aid of charity.

Chris had to stay in the Emirates Air Line cable car if his listeners kept donating towards various fundraising milestones, and the show was live-streamed on YouTube.

On entering the cable car, Chris (who has a huge fear of heights and cable-cars), had to be calmed down by Dominic Byrne, who joined him in the cable car for its first rotation.

Chris shouted: “Oh lord! Oh my good god, oh my lord it’s high! It’s a bit wobbly! Oh my god! It’s wobbling from side to side. Would you like me to be honest? I’m more nervous than I thought I’d be!”

As his listeners kept donating, he kept rotating, and Chris was joined by guests including Go Compare man Wynne Evans – who led Chris in a rendition of Nessun Dorma and comedian Jon Culshaw.

Andy Puddicombe, creator of Headspace, joined Chris in the car to teach him meditation techniques.
