Capital Liverpool

Turns out Capital Liverpool wasn't quite ready for Ellie and her scissors, but luckily she's an expert in improvisation!

This morning (18th January), the Capital universe just got a little bigger - when we launched Liverpool's NEW hit music station!

Adam, Gemma & Imogen kicked off Capital Breakfast at 6am, and had a string of celebrity guests eager to welcome Capital to Liverpool.

'On My Mind' star Ellie Goulding was on hand to cut the "ribbon" on our brand new home at Liverpool One, but there was one problem...

Adam forgot to bring a ribbon to cut - but fear not, thinking on his feet, he had a plan B... use his HAIR!


We are LIVE LIVERPOOL! Ellie Goulding popped in to help us launch! Every new place needs to a ribbon cutting ceremony, we have no ribbon, so how about Adam's hair? #SorryAdam

Yes, chart-topping pop superstar Ellie officially opened Capital Liverpool by cutting Adam's (surprisingly grey) hair.

Current king of the Vodafone Big Top 40, Troye Sivan, was also among the A-list stars eager to wish the Capital Liverpool crew good luck, dropping the guys a voicemail this morning.


Adam, Gemma & Imogen were also joined by Hollyoaks and I'm A Celeb star Jorgie Porter, who ended up in ACTUAL TEARS during her Scousetucker Trial!
