Comedian Bill Bailey joined Jon Holmes to chat about his charity walk, Glastonbury and Jeremy Corbyn.

Bailey is set to walk the Ridgeway, an ancient road measuring 87 miles, to raise money for Cancer Research UK in July, as part of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign.

He told Jon that other comedians will be walking with him along the way and he felt he wanted to raise money for Cancer Research UK because "we know people close to us - friends, family members - who have been affected by cancer."

Bailey also spoke about what got him interested in wildlife and nature. He said: "I grew up in the west country and my parents were very much into going to wildlife reserves...it was a family outing."

The comedian chatted about Glastonbury as he often attends, and revealed "there was a tunnel one year, somebody tunneled under the fence one year, it came up in a two-man tent, all these people slightly worse for wear were watching all of these people coming out a two-man tent."

Jon also asked him about the recent general election. Bailey believes Jeremy Corbyn did well as "when he went out and talked to people...people realised he was someone willing to stand up and be counted and meet people."
