Johnny back with another Sunday Weekend Breakfast. Loads on the show this week, with everything from vegan singers to the US President singing (this show really is unique!!)

A few cheeky countdowns for you:

  • 12 days till the Winter Olympics begin in South Korea
  • 111 days till Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married
  • 425 days till the UK is scheduled to leave the EU

The show started with some nerve-wracking news for sleep talkers:

Celebrity birthdays:

  • Jamie Carragher, English former footballer, Liverpool and England defender (40)
  • Jessica Ennis-Hill, English heptathlete, 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist (32)
