The trio are embarking on a camper van tour of the UK's favourite holiday destinations, and were better to sample the delights of the British seaside than Blackpool?

Lancashire lad Jordan who presents BBC Radio One's afternoon drive show with Vick Hope, and Greg, the breakfast show presenter, will travel the length and breadth of the country meeting listeners for the first time since the pandemic began.

But prankster Jordan has had Greg 'locked' inside the camper van - which he calls "an escape room on wheels" - while he and Vick have all the fun.

He says the only way for Greg to escape into the sunshine is for him to solve clues and enter the correct answers into a keypad to unlock the camper van doors.

But whilst Greg is cooped up inside, Jordan and Vick have been busy enjoying the best of Blackpool.

This is what they've been up to so far...
