Poor Greg James had the hangover from hell when he was kidnapped after the Brit Awards.

And in a new picture from the ordeal, it looks like Radio 1 really went all out to make sure the breakfast DJ didn’t know where he was being kept.

In a hilarious snap from his capture, the 34-year-old was placed in a wheelchair with a red scarf wrapped around his face and headphones placed over his ears, while wearing the same clothes he wore to the Brit Awards.

Greg shared the pic and tweeted: ‘The absolute state of this. A new photo has emerged of the moment before the room was sealed around me…’

Followers joked that the photo could be concept album artwork for Kraftwerk, as well as a promo for Bird Box 2.

They’re not wrong.

As we all know now, Greg was being held captive on the 39th floor of the Shard by Mollie King and Alan Carr, who were getting revenge for last year’s Hide and Seek.

Listeners were tasked with using their detective skills to figure out who had Greg, as well as helping him get out of the room he spent nearly 39 hours in.

Speaking to Scott Mills during the stunt, Greg said: ‘I was as normal, having an amazing time and it was one of the best Brits I’ve ever seen, then I went off to one of the after-parties.

‘It got really busy and an hour and a half in I got bundled out of the back door, a blindfold was put on me and I was put in a car and driven around… it’s so hazy because, and you can hear it in my voice, I had had a lot of wine. I was in the back of this car and I fell asleep for a bit.

‘I guess it was an hour or so, maybe a bit more, bundled out of this car, put in a wheelchair, with the blindfold still on, and taken somewhere… and now I’m in a white room, with nothing in it apart from a single bed… I’m still in my Brits stuff from last night… I feel like I’m slowly losing my mind.’

The nation became enthralled with Greg’s kidnapping from the get-go because at first, people believed he had just pulled a sickie after going too hard at the Brits.

Adele Roberts was forced to stand in for Greg on his Wednesday morning Radio 1 show after he failed to show up… when all along, he was up the Shard.

However, there has been criticism of the stunt after it emerged that the BBC had forked out thousands to hold Greg captive in one of the swanky suites in the Shangri La hotel in the Shard.

According to The Sun, the BBC got a discount on the room, but usually a suite like the one housing Greg is £10,000 a night.
