OUCH!

27th January 2015

The Jump starts on Channel 4 soon, someone on the show is bound to end up in A&E but have you ever broken a bone in your body? What bone, how and where?

Kerry Connolly Brant
I broke my foot whilst performing on stage (dancing) i felt it crack and carried on like a true pro until the end. I took the curtain call and went off stage and collapsed!
 
Robbie Tansley
I broke my ulna and radious, it got caught in a drill at work
 
Tania Wyley
 got up late one morning to the sound of the bin lorry outside, to realise that I did not put my bin out.. so in a hurry and my pyjamas I rushed down stairs, while tryin not to let my dog escape out the back gate I went to grab his collar and.... BANG I hit my finger straight on the bin lid and I felt a massive pain, I went inside cursed the dog and then looked at my finger, it's was swollen 4 times the size. I spoke to my neighbour and she said "come on were off to hospital" and yep it was broke

Hands of my Hyundai

27th January 2015

On Saturday I took Super Trooper and the KLFM promo team to Reads Hyundai to play 'Hands off our Hyundai'.

Hundreds of entries were whittled down to just six at random, those six joined us at Reads Hyundai on Scania Way in King's Lynn for an afternoon like they've never know before.  All our contestants knew was that they may be away from home for a long time and that if they were lucky a nice shiny new Hyundai I10 could have been theirs for the year.

As you've probably guessed their quest was to remain touching the car at all times and the last remaining person would be crowned the winner, although pretty much correct there were many tasks and activities along the way which overtime eliminated our wannabe winners one by one.   After a few hours the strain was already beginning to show...

We allowed three strikes for errors other than letting go of the car such as not using your correct hand or leg for example and this ended up being the downfall of all but one contestant who accidentally let go whilst obeying Simon's instructions.

By around 3pm only two contestants remained, and there was no way either of them was going to lose, this really was the car that they Wanted!

 Who was going to get the better of the other?

it took nearly seven hours, but we finally found a winner just before 5pm.   Cherie Wild managed to get the better of Thomas during the final task which involved our final two contestants working their way around the car, opening the back door, shuffling across the back seat and working their way to their start position in the quickest time.

Bombs drop on King's Lynn

19th January 2015

 

100 years ago a Zeppelin appeared in the skies of King's Lynn. People in 1915 had probably never even seen a plane before. Then the bombs began falling, but where did they fall?

Listen to find out...

Create a new movie

14th January 2015

When it comes to choosing a film at my house there are three things all films have to pass before they'll be watched. The name, the actors and the plot.  But what if there was a typo in the name of the movie, what if just one letter was missing?

 

Today I discovered this can completely change a movie forever....

 

Aging Bull

The sad story of an elderly bovine

 

Need for seed

An Old farmer travels the land in search for seeds to save his farm and lives of his hungry family.

 

Dude, Here's My Car.

After a crazy night, Ashton Kutcher and Sean William Scott decide to leave their place, only to find that the car is exactly where they had parked it the previous day.

 

Casio Royale

Almost 3 hours of nothing but piano and synthesizer performances.

 

Tar Wars. 

The story of the intense rivalry between road work contractors.

 

Silence of the Labs.

How far will a man go to shut up his neighbor's barking dog.

 

Despicable M : 

Judi Dench does some nasty things

 

Fight Cub -

A movie about the struggles of a bear cub to survive after his mother was killed.

 

Peed. A guy is stuck on an out-of-control bus, speeding down the freeway with no bathroom!

 

ill Bill

A man named William becomes very unwell.

 

Take 2

Two hours of Liam Neeson messing up his lines.

A Happy 2015

8th January 2015

 This Morning on the Adam Newstead Breakfast Show I asked what has been the best bit about 2015 for you so far.  For me apart from having to get up stupidly early for work it’s been being able to be home earlier meaning I get to eat dinner with the family, share stories and relax a bit longer before going to bed.  Makes a difference, it really does.

Joshua King had a good start, but not as straight forward as you might of first thought!

Listen below.
