Mr Andrews had sung the praises of Olivia, Alfie and Harrison (pictured inset) on the centre’s Facebook page, writing: “I must say they were very good and asked some brilliant questions. - Eat your heart out Jeremy Vine.”

A link to the pupils’ report was also posted on the page.

Tim Johns, formerly of BBC Radio Lincolnshire and today a reporter and producer on The Jeremy Vine Show, brought the pupils’ efforts to the attention of Jeremy, who posed for a photograph with the message ‘WELL DONE BURGH SCHOOL JOURNALISTS!’.

Posting the image on the centre’s Facebook page, Mr Johns wrote: “I think Jeremy is now in fear of his job!”
