Dan Walker and Sally Ann Matthews were among the celebs gripped by a live stream of aircraft landing at Heathrow during Storm Eunice.

Big Jet TV has been going for a few years but went viral as the storm buffeted the UK and thousands tuned in to see how pilots were coping with the strong winds.

As well as people watching from home and work, maternity wards and at least one A&E were also said to be showing it.

BBC Breakfast star Walker was one of those hooked by the action.

He tweeted: “I am considering leaving all current jobs and applying for a gig at Big Jet TV.”

Actor Laurence Fox shared a picture of himself plane-spotting on his phone while out for a meal.

“This perhaps isn’t the date lunch that my fiancée was expecting,” he joked.

Corrie’s Matthews said that the channel was actually helping with her flying worries.

“I have a massive fear of flying," she tweeted.

"Weirdly, watching @BigJetTVLIVE is making it better. I guess it’s seeing the regularity of planes landing safely x.”

Radio star Nick Grimshaw posted: “Today’s distraction from being productive: Big Jet TV.”

Sports broadcaster Clive Tyldesley quipped: “Big Jet TV may be the end of football.”

Writer Caitlin Moran posted: "Am now totally addicted to 'Big Jet TV' - a man with a camera standing in a field outside Heathrow, filming and commentating as planes try to land in the storm.
