From The Ashes to The Archers

11th September 2007

Former England cricket captain will make a special appearence in BBC Radio 4's The Archers tomorrow. Mike Gatting joins a long list of famous names to guest on the show including Terry Wogan, Alan Titchmarsh, Griff Rhys Jones, Chris Moyles and HRH Princess Margaret.

Mike takes part in the special show recorded at Lord's cricket ground during the npower Village Cup Final on Sunday. When, having been missing for an hour, Jolene spots the cricketer leading her husband to an MCC box, anxious Jolene thinks Sid is being kidnapped and immediately gives chase.

Gatting's immediate reaction when asked to appear in The Archers was that he'd love to do it: "It's a great honour to appear in a show that forms part of everyday life. I remember my mum and dad listening to the programme when I was growing up."

Listeners learn the outcome of the mix-up during the programme, broadcast just hours after being recorded.
