Explaining, the excited host began: “So what we could do is we could run a competition and get one of the elite boat companies to give us a boat for the listeners.

“You stay on the boat in the harbour, we do the show and you get to watch the golf with Sky Sports.”

The television personality then went on to joke about why he left the BBC and switched over to Virgin Radio.

He added: “It doesn’t get any better than this [but] still now and again it’s, ‘Why did you leave the BBC?”

Following his ballsy remark, Chris burst into a high-pitched yell, while his co-host, Vassos, quietly giggled in the background.

At the time Chris confirmed he was departing the BBC he also admitted he had been deliberating the decision for a year.
