Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has canceled his appearance on Saturday Kitchen Live after getting stuck in Hollywood after Storm Eunice.
The rocker was planning to travel from America to appear as a guest on the BBC Two cooking show but was forced to cancel.
Bastille singer Dan Smith stepped in at the last minute to “save the day”, host Matt Tebbutt said.
Change of plan…unfortunately, Dave Grohl is stuck in LA and won’t be able to appear on the show tomorrow!☹️
But the brilliant Dan Smith from Bastille joins us in the morning for all the usual chaos with Matt, Sam and Shauna, Angelo Sato and Helen McGinn!😃

Tebbutt said, “Our special guest was supposed to be the legendary Dave Grohl. Unfortunately, thanks to Storm Eunice, Dave is stuck in Los Angeles.
“Luckily at the last minute, and I really mean the last minute, the lead singer of the brilliant Brit Award-winning band Bastille came to save the day, and I couldn’t be happier that he be here. I’m relieved.”
Hundreds of flights to and from the UK were canceled on Friday as planes struggled to land at airports due to high winds.
Many were hijacked or required multiple attempts to land as Storm Eunice battered the country.
