Sadiq Khan is well-known to LBC listeners because of his monthly phone-in with James - and has previously shown his humour, such as in this clip from a debate with Zac Goldsmith.

"Bullseye Goldsmiiiiiiiith": Sadiq's response to Zac Goldsmith's bus lane plans.

Among the people to fill in for James this week were Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg. And he certainly hosted the show in his own inimitable style.

On Tuesday, Chuka Umunna stood in and was extremely emotional in the way he discussed young people being caught up in gang crime.
