The presenter was travelling to the Big Apple on the Queen Mary 2 to celebrate a "significant birthday."

After requesting a meeting with the Captain Chris Wells he was shown around the bridge of the magificent liner.

Captain Wells, who joined Cunard Line in 1992, was impressed by the work of Radio Clatterbridge and wished the station well.

Better known for his seafaring, he has previously also expressed his affection of music.

"I love music and enjoy playing the piano when I get a chance. We are a very musical family, with most Saturday mornings at home dedicated to music." - Captain Chris Wells
