I'm surprised no one has started yapping about this, it's goes on till 1am..

Lots of TV and radio favourites and Sarah Cox.

I'd rather Sarah Millican had the Greg James role, but I guess they had to justify it with someone in the BBC Three age range.

I wonder if this is a So Television Production? Now owned by ITV of course.

I don't think it is SO. Executive produced by Suzi Aplin - Jonathan Ross's producer! Think it'll be a BBC Comic Relief production.

What studio is it in at TVC?

Greg James' impression of Jools was pretty good Laughing

Is that the actual Comic Relief studio? It being in TC1 with a huge performance area and screen does seem a little excessive for a chat show.

Also, I presume the last hour or so of Greg James's Radio 1 show was pre-recorded - he was last on air at about 6.57pm in central London and then popped up at 7.10pm in White City!

Here is the BBC One/BBC Three link up at about 20:00.

I guess the performance area needs to be a good distance away from the conversation area and the wall is needed as well to allow bands to set up, without it coming over.

I can't imagine this will be the Comic Relief set, I'd expect more red and for it and for it to be a be bit lighter.

I don't think it's a custom designed set. It's probably from a gameshow or something. Or rather, the floor is from an existing show with the other bits added in.

I did wonder how they'd do that. Originally thought he wouldn't show up till 8pm, so was surprised when he appeared at 7:10.

He's got tomorrow off from Radio 1, surely not just because he's doing this till 1am?!
