DJ gets to hang out with big names
Jo Whiley has had some surreal experiences during her career.
‘Jay-Z came to our house as part of the Live Lounge tour when I was still at Radio 1,’ says Jo, 48.
‘He was sitting with my grandmother and parents, drinking champagne and eating strawberries!’
Jo – who is a mum to kids India, Jude, Cassius and Coco with husband Steve Morton – also integrated Jay-Z’s pal Chris Martin, 36, into her family when they hung out at Glastonbury.
‘When India was little, she came to Glastonbury and Coldplay popped over to film TV coverage,’ the Radio 2 presenter says.
‘Chris Martin went into the caravan where India and her friends were and read them bedtime stories.’
