BBC Radio 1’s Greg James explains the big life change he’s made since filming new show

Greg James has made a big life change thanks to his new YouTube series.

The BBC Radio 1 breakfast host said the show, The Great Travel Hack, has had a profound effect on him since he finished filming.

“I learnt a lot about electric vehicles and I thought about my own lovely car which I bought for myself a year or so ago,” he exclusively told Digital Spy.

“When I got the breakfast show, I thought I’d treat myself and I got an old Mercedes.

I started filming the show, and then got home and saw my car and went, ‘I don’t actually need this, and it’s really terrible for the environment’.

“So I’ve since sold it and I’m getting an electric car.

Discussing the new YouTube series, the 33-year-old said: “The Great Travel Hack is a show that I am hosting with my Dutch co-host Katja Schuurman about two teams that are travelling across Europe in the cleanest way possible.”

Making up the UK team is former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! campmates Jordan Banjo from Diversity and Olympian Sam Quek.

“You are right in thinking they are the most competitive, they are almost unbearably competitive at times,” Greg said. “They don’t really know what they are doing but they just cannot bear to lose so it’s fun to watch.
