The presenter was asking on the Jeremy Vine Show on Channel 5 who their dream festival guest would be and presenter Storm Huntley said Gerry Cinnamon.

Storm, from Bishopbriggs, told Jeremy: “I’m going to go for Gerry Cinnamon.

“Incredible. I went to see him him last week, at Ally Pally, sold out. It was a phenomenal performance.”

Realising that no one else was sharing her glee, Storm asked “why am I seeing a see of blank faces?”

None of the guests or Jeremy seemed to know who Gerry was – however, it’s probably not much to go off of considering guest Graeme Brown, editor of the Birmingham Mail, didn’t know who Thin Lizzy was.

Jeremy replied: “Who is Gerry Cinnamon?”

Storm said: “Belter! You must know Belter!”

The show cut to Gerry playing his favourite Belter to a crowd going mad.

Storm said: “The great thing about a Gerry Cinnamon gig is that you have to have your stamping feet on. These shoes would just not do for a Gerry gig. But yeah, he has quite a lot in common with Bruce Springsteen – sold out Hampden, supported Liam Gallagher – so he deserves to be on there.”

Jeremy said that he’d bring back Thin Lizzy, while Carole plumped for Bruce Springsteen.

Twitter users also waded in with their choices.

One said: “God they must have been really short of choices. Fleetwood Mac ideal but their price demands are too high unfortunately according to Eavis.”

Another wasn’t too impressed with Gerry Cinnamon, writing: “Gerry Cinnamon just a very poor Sam Fender.”
