Cycling hero Bradley Wiggins made a surprise appearance onstage with Paul Weller at the Hammersmith Apollo last night (December 19) during the encore of the star-studded concert in aid of homelessness charity Crisis – watch fan-filmed footage of it below.

"We have a special guest here, it’s a bit difficult to convince him to come on," Weller said, peering into the wings, before the Olympic gold medallist and Tour De France winner came on to play guitar on a closing version of The Jam's 'That’s Entertainment'.

Wiggins said:

It was incredible. To get up on stage with Weller is a childhood ambition. I could die tomorrow happy.

Wiggins, who also recently recorded a joint interview with Weller for BBC 6 Music, was one of a string of guests joining Weller during a career-spanning set of hits, rarities and covers.

Recent writing partner Miles Kane also took the stage to duet with the Modfather on 'Echoes Round The Sun', following an earlier joint appearance during Kane’s support set, when the pair played their new co-written song 'You’re Gonna Get It', due to appear on Kane’s forthcoming second album.

Weller’s son Natt appeared to play guitar on 'Come On/Let’s Go' from his 2005 album 'As Is Now', and second support act Emeli Sande joined him for a cover of the 1965 classic by The Impressions, 'People Get Ready'.

Weller’s set also included Jam rarity 'Carnation' and The Style Council’s 'My Ever Changing Moods' as well as recent favourite 'From The Floorboards Up' and legendary Jam hit 'Start!'.
