    He's a man of many hats, Keith Lemon aka Leigh Francis joins Tom for the most risque episode to date. Sensitive ears beware. The boys talk nether regions, circumcision and the Yorkshire meaning of minge (clue: it's further up than you think).


    Keith SHHH-TINGS to his hearts content, talks about his short but sweet role in the 'Rocket Man' movie and shows his charitable side as he talks about his friend, Caroline Flack.
