Capital Breakfast presenter Chris Stark was invited by his all-time favourite band Busted to perform on stage with them at The O2, London, something he immediately thought was a prank having only recently learned to play guitar.

Chris joined Charlie Simpson, James Bourne and Matt Willis to sing 'Sleeping With The Light On' in front of 20,000 fans, learning the chords to the song just a few days before the concert.

As a diehard Busted fan, naturally he was already a pro with the lyrics.

"Busted didn't know what they'd let themselves in for. I've never performed anything ever," Chris admitted after Matt said he thought he'd had experience performing.

We filmed the whole thing, from the moment Matt asked Chris to join them, to the moment he made his concert debut.

Chris even got involved in the group's pre-show rituals, including ping pong, haircuts and an ice bath!

"You're a real rock star now," Matt told him.
