@TylerPittaway & Producer Fraser back on air this week for Coffee & Tea after a week away. Our thanks to Ari for covering the show while I was in Southampton, and Fraser was in Brighton, before the latest restrictions were announced.

Today we spoke about the most inhospitable planet ever discovered which has been found by astronomers over 200 light years away.

On this day in music:

  • 1975 – Elton John started a three week run at No.1 on the US album chart with ‘Rock Of The Westies’  

  • 1981 – Hall and Oates started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Private Eyes’

  • 1999 – Geri Halliwell went to No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Lift Me Up’

The celeb birthdays today include:

  • Tinie Tempah, 32

  • Rio Ferdinand, 42

  • David Guetta, 53
