Daughter’s tweet sparks friendship between Greg James and her mother
Greg James has revealed the hilarious moment he met a fan on the train after he received a tweet from the woman's daughter sharing her mum's suspicions that she was seated next to the Radio 1 presenter.
Sitting on the Edinburgh train to London on Sunday, Greg posted a clip which showed a laptop in front of him with a tweet from a user called Colleen who informed James that her mum, Jane Mcquillen, believed she was sitting next to him on his train and detailed what kind of wine they were both drinking.
"My mum thinks she’s sat next to you on a train from Edinburgh right now so if you could confirm that would be amazing, her name is Jane and she’s just had a white wine and says you are on red x," Colleen tweeted.
“We had a great six hours together yesterday on that train… We are basically best friends,” he said.
Chatting to Greg on his show, Jane - who works for the Royal National Institute of Blind People - said the experience was “absolutely crazy" and also revealed she took a sneaky snap of the radio host to send to her daughter to confirm it was definitely him.
Colleen also spoke on the show where described the situation as “the most Jane thing to ever happen. She’s just utter chaos”.
