Big Narstie is back - and the 'elderly crew' love him!

Good Morning Britain's family friend, Big Narstie, returned to the show to promote his single off his upcoming album - and caused just as much chaos as last time!

Three months ago, the grime star caused shock waves across the country after he delivered his unorthodox viral weather report which was viewed almost 10 million times online.

Big Narstie said that he's gained an older fan base since doing the grime weather report earlier in the year. He yelled: "Big up the elderly crew yeah, ey, OAP gang! Gang, gang, gang, gang, gang, gang!"
