    Something from the Cellar: The Power of Food

    Something from the Cellar: The Power of Food

    This week, we're diving back into some brilliant conversations that show us the incredible power food has to bring people together and change lives!
    First up we have the lovely Rosemary Shrager who explains how landing a job in Pierre Koffman's kitchen helped piece her life back together after she hit a major crisis point. Next we have the hilarious king of comedy, Jack Dee! He takes us back to his restaurant managing years and walks us through how a stormy meet cute with a customer led to a marriage that's lasted over 35 years. And finally, we have someone who's come from a lineage of culinary connoisseurs - it's the incredible Michel Roux! He tells us how a life-changing Parisian patisserie apprenticeship taught him the value of mentorship and gave him the essential life skills he needed on his journey towards taking over the family business.

    Steve Pemberton on a decade of mind-bending TV, lying to the One Show and swapping the screen for the stage

    Joining us today is a man jointly responsible for some of the most dynamic, forward-thinking and utterly superb television we’ve seen in this country. He’s also a fabulous actor you’ll know from the likes of Benidorm, Happy Valley, Doctor Who and loads more - it’s Steve Pemberton!
    As its final season airs on BBC Two, Steve chats to Kate about Inside No. 9's incredible run, twenty-five years after his debut hit, The League of Gentlemen, also took the country by storm. They also chat about how much fun he had starring in Benidorm, having to lie through his teeth on The One Show and adapting Inside No. 9 for the stage - both here and in China!
    The final season of Inside No. 9 is available now on BBC Two and iPlayer. Plus, get your tickets to Inside No.9 Stage / Fright right here!

    Something from the Cellar: Embarrassing Moments

    Something from the Cellar: Embarrassing Moments

    On today's episode, we're revisiting some of our guests' most embarrassing stories! The types of situation that leave you little choice but to laugh in the face of them!
    First up, we have Dave Berry and Alex Zane, who were left red-faced in the workplace a few times – starting with a post-breakfast drink with Liam Gallagher, then an eventful New Year's Eve with Elton John and finishing up with a toe-curling chat with Burt Reynolds. We also have Daisy May Cooper who tells us how an underwhelming trip to the job centre left her feeling humiliated and defeated, but ultimately pushed her to fight even harder for the career of her dreams. And last but not least, Sophie Ellis-Bextor tells us about the time she was presumed pregnant and had to send an awkward but necessary email to correct the narrative... which she accidentally copied her mum into!

    Bruno takes a break from gardening - a favourite pastime of his - to chat about the origins of a remarkable 50-year career that’s taken him from the Italian countryside to the glittering heights of Paris and now London. We also chat about Strictly’s rocky start, his lasting friendship with Len Goodman and his more peaceful life away from the spotlight - often in front of a good book or in the garden!

    Something from the Cellar: Mental Health Awareness Month (Part 2)

    To continue our series of episodes marking Mental Health Awareness Month, we wanted to revisit a subject that we'll all come to experience in our own unique way: grief.
    On today's episode, we revisit our conversation with Josie Gibson and Malin Andersson, who met in real life for the first time in the WWQT studio to discuss how they supported one another on a journey through grief. Plus, Bros member Matt Goss talks openly about losing his mother and moments with her he'd like to relive and Brenda Edwards discusses her own struggles as an orphan and how vital her community became when she tragically lost her son, Jamal.
