Greg James: We should be united by music

As long as we’re respectful of the people and the victims of this week we should celebrate and we should move forward, and that’s what music does to a lot of people.

– Greg James wants people to unite through music

Greg James was on the show this morning to tell us why he believes it's important that gigs and concerts continue. There have been increased concerns about security threats at large scale concerts and events in the wake of the Manchester terror attacks this week which left 22 dead and injured dozens more.

Radio 1's Big weekend will go ahead this weekend with extra security measure in Hull this weekend and James hope that the music will serve to unite people. James, told Lorraine that we need to be respectful about what has happened and of the many the victims, but that we also need to carry on.

'Being united by the music is absolutely the message of the weekend really.'

I'm speaking about something positive today and it feels so odd with the tone of the events at the minute, it's just devastating

– Jess Wright

Former TOWIE star, Jess Wright spoke to Lorraine this morning after returning from working in Manchester at the weekend.

She said she is 'devastated' by the events that have happened and said that Manchester is one of her favourite cities, adding, 'I have no words, it's just awful.'

Jess said: "It breaks my heart, this kind of thing all over the world, every day but the fact that it was aimed at a concert where you know it's going to be full of children, it's just inhumane."

Salt n Pepa still Pushin' It

We pushed right through it, that's our theme song!

– Pepa on pushing boundaries for women in RnB

Proving they can still Push It, 31 years after their big break, Salt n Pepa spoke to Lorraine about being the original trailblazers for women in RnB.

Bounding onto the scene in the 80s, they had their most famous hit Push It in 1986, followed by lots of other chart toppers including Shake Your Thang, Twist and Shout and Let's Talk About Sex.

They pushed boundaries right from the start. Salt said, "We've always pushed past the glass ceiling. We represented fun, fashion and femininity in hiphop.'

Speaking about their unique bond, Pepa spoke of their 'sisterhood' and Salt said, "We have this friendship from day one that's just uncanny. We can talk to each other with our eyes, the chemistry is insane."

We have 90's babies and we were like, why are you here, but I think they're into the nostalgia of the 90's. It represented an era that was a lot of fun.

– Salt thinks it's funny that the front row of their concerts are dominated by 90s babies
