The ongoing battle between the two Radio X presenters continues… and Vernon has taken it to a whole other level.

It started with some simple social media japery… the odd Facebook hijack here, the occasional Twitter prank there.

But last week, Chris Moyles confused his on air colleague Vernon Kay by getting you, the listeners, to tweet in relentlessly that all they could hear was BBC Radio Stoke. Engineers were called. Vernon was none the wiser. Then all was revealed - it was a PRANK.

Radio X is available on 104.9 FM in London, 97.7 FM in Manchester, on digital radio across the country, on our app or via
