Express FM breakfast host Ian James was given a birthday to remember when his studio was invaded by colleagues who sang him happy birthday live on air - and gave him an inflatable banana.

Ian (pictured on the right), who turned 60 today (March 12), was finishing up his travel bulletin on this morning's show when his colleagues, wearing Hawaiian necklaces, burst into his studio to give him a big 'beach vibes' birthday celebration - accompanied inflatables including a palm tree and a flamingo.
