‘Eggheads’ bus photo replaced

A man who accidentally left a signed photo of ‘Eggheads’ star Chris Hughes (b. 1947) on a bus in Nottinghamshire will get a replacement after BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) presenters, Greg James (b. 1985) and Jeremy Vine (b. 1965), picked up his plea.

Ben Jones lost the picture of the quiz-show contestant on the bus between Mapperley and Nottingham in May.

Radio host Greg James saw a social media appeal — shared worldwide — that Mr Jones had posted about the lost photo and had him on his ‘Radio 1 Breakfast Show’.

The DJ subsequently spoke to ‘Eggheads’ presenter Jeremy Vine about getting a replacement photo for Mr Jones.
