Heart Breakfast 18th-22nd June
Find out what James & Charlie got up to the week of the 18th-22nd of June!
Friday 22nd June
We learnt that James is really REALLY looking forward to his father's cricket match at the weekend…
James will be playing against his son George this weekend in a "friendly" Father-Son cricket game at George's school! And he is a bit worried about it...
You were all giving James your advice on what to do, before Charlie got Kent cricket legend and Essex Cricket Club coach, Matt Walker, on the phone:
We learnt that Lithuania are good at basketball…
Marius from Lithuania popped in to represent his country in James & Charlie's 2012 Challenge - to get a photo with someone from each of the 205 nations represented at the Olympics.
He is excited about the Olympics as he is working at them! He says that hopefully he will be working at the Basketball - One of the biggest sports in Lithuania!
Find out all about the 2012 Chllenge and see how the guys are getting on here !
We learnt that you can now SEE what Charlie was screaming at!
After a week of James trying to teach Charlie to drive on the wrong side on the road, she is finally prepared for her holiday to Spain this summer!
You can now see the results of their trip to France and we finally know why Charlie screams at the end!
Thursday 21st June
We learnt that Daniel Radcliffe is the Wizard of Pain…
He's doing it all - He was the boy wizard, Harry Potter, he is in an indie music video (being all dark and moody), and now we can reveal his next career move...
We introduce the newest wrestler on the scene, The Wizard of Pain!
We learnt that it's easy to make Kristen's Millions…
Kristen Stewart (you know, her out of Twilight) has been named the highest paid actress in Hollywood!
The actress has bagged herself around £7.9 million for her work this year! She even beat people like Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bullock!
Charlie decided it was easy and decided her and James should give the romantic vampire stuff a go... They were less than convincing though!
We learnt that Grey is the most difficult colour…
Our Colourful Cosmos competition this morning had you stumped! No-one could get the elusive third song for ages until Alex from Gravesend did, bagging himself a holiday to Zante! How would you have done? There's another chance to play tomorrow morning at 7:25.
Wednesday 20th June
We learnt that James used the C word
It's true – he said Christmas today! We're now counting down to the big day as, according to the the Greenwichmean Time website, today is the Summer Solstice (the longest day of the year)! So James, Charlie and Producer Matt gave you some longest facts – here they are – go and amaze your friends!
The longest kiss lasted 50 hours, 25 minutes and 1 second and was achieved by Nonthawat and Thanakorn in Thailand on Valentines Day this year.
The longest piece of spaghetti ever made was 3333m long. A bloke called Gewerbe from Switzerland did it back in 2004.
The person with the longest tongue in the whole world is a guy called Stephen Taylor from Coventry. His tongue measures 3.86 inches and was measured in February 2009 – this was correct until midnight last night when the record was broken!
Thanks to Michael for correcting us!
We learnt that Charlie is off to France
So this morning James surprised Charlie – with P&O Ferries tickets and her passport! Yes, straight after the show James is taking Charlie to France and get her to drive on the wrong side of the road!
Keep checking Facebook.com/heartkent and find out tomorrow how she gets on!!
Lets hope it not like the driving video below!
And we learnt that Benson was Bang on
Heart Breakfast has a 100% Hit rate with their predictive pets; Benson, Producer Matt's cat, correctly predicted England would win against the Ukraine (see video below).
But Charlie does now think James needs to bring something to the table – however, he doesn't have any pets!! What will he do? Keep listening to find out.
Tuesday 19th June
We learnt that 8 out of 10 of us like Benson
Euro 2012 is well under way – and no big tournament is complete without a match-predicting animal. in the news we’ve heard about psychic llamas and a polish ferret. Last week Charlie thought she’d jump on the band wagon with her pet rabbit Simba – and it correctly predicted Spain to win against Ireland!
But it's all about England tonight – and in our series of Predictive Pets Producer Matt has got help from his cat!
We learnt why Charlie was dribbling
Yesterday on the show – we heard Charlie was worried about driving abroad as she's never done it before, and she's going to be the driver on her girls holiday next month! We got loads of advice from you yesterday, but after the show James wanted to offer his help… in a way only he could!
And we learnt that it’s all about Turkey tomorrow
Congratulations to Sarah from Rainham who won a fantastic holiday for her and her husband to Majorca – we also gave her £250 spending money! If you like the sound of that, make sure you're listening tomorrow just before 7.30 as you can win a holiday to Turkey – find out more here !
Sarah won by identifying the 3 colourful tracks in this…just for fun can you name them all?
Monday 18th June
We learnt that Madonna will never be engaged again
Madonna has requested 20 phone lines in her dressing room on her MDNA tour, so she can stay in touch with her loved ones.
Madonna has been travelling with a 200-strong entourage including 30 bodyguards, personal chefs, a yoga instructor and an acupuncturist on the sold out dates.
She also has a portable dry cleaner and has asked for her space to be decorated with lilies and roses - with their stems trimmed to exactly six inches - plus the area must be draped in a special fabric. Her team have also removed the furniture from the rooms and filled them with the singer's own property to give it a homely feel.
James and Charlie can't believe this - 20 phone lines? Surely she can only talk on one at a time?! Is this just to feel special?? Charlie now wants 20 chairs in the Heart studio please – she can only sit on one at a time , but she want to feel very important! Yeah good luck with the Charlie.
We learnt that Charlie needs to tie something to her wrist
We heard from Charlie's best friend Alison this morning – Charlie played an answer phone message that was from Alison who was reminding Charlie that she will be driving over in Spain when they go on holiday in a few weeks. Charlie asked for your help, she's really scared and has never driven abroad before!
Lots of advice from people who just said don't do it, while some others were a bit more helpful:
Terri McDonald Just Dont go around the round about the wrong way. Just stay calm and take your time and Dont let the comments of OMG from the other passengers put you off- good luck !x
Claire Wheller Use a sat nav that covers the country your going to and remember to stay on the right side of the road. There's nothing to it x
Tracey Birchley Tie something on your wrist to remind you what side of the road you should be on!!
Sarah Jones Dont forget first aid kit ,triangle, high vis jackets.. Head lightdeflectors
James thinks she still isn't ready though – find out what he has in store from her tomorrow!
And we learnt that Sarah is off to Tenerife and Lisa has £1000 to spend
Wow – what a way to start a Monday – we gave away a week's holiday to Tenerife to Sarah in Rainham (another chance to win a holiday to Majorca tomorrow at 7.25 ) and then Lisa from Broadstairs went and won the Thousand Pound Minute – she answered 10 questions correctly in 60 seconds! We have another £1000 for you to win tomorrow – at 8.25! Good luck.
