’s has opened about having his race bike stolen as he joined on the show – and sent a direct message to the thief.
On Monday’s programme, Josie, 38, said she had missed Craig’s ‘Irish tones’ during their break from hosting the popular show before the pair had a brief catch-up on what’s been going on in their lives.
While Josie said she’d had the ‘best weekend of her life’ over the past few days at Camp Bestival alongside her children, Craig told a slightly less enthusiastic story of having his beloved racing bike stolen.
The 52-year-old said he had two weeks of being a taxi for the children, and from his journeys, he now knew all of Tyler The Creator’s music.
The presenter then went on to talk about the theft, saying to the camera: ‘My race bike was stolen, yep, it has a very tiny seat so I hope it hurts.’
When asked by Josie how much the bike was worth, he simply replied: ‘It’s worth a lot’… but what was more important were the memories attached to it.
‘If there’s someone walking round London and they’re not able to walk very well, it’s cause the saddle is tiny and it hurts – and I hope it really hurts,’ he added.

‘Bosses hope that they can put all of the Schofield Scan**l behind them and start concentrating on the content of the show rather than the twosome presenting it. At least this way there won’t be any falling out.’
They continued to the : ‘Holly is so excited about the plan, she loves Josie, Craig, Alison and Dermot. It’s a happy ship and she made the decision not to quit but instead to return and keep things going while being at the helm. Holly is absolutely determined to head up the challenge to make the show a success again.’
