Featuring Alan Cumming, Jason Isaacs, Emma
Bunton and Fred MacAulay
On Graham’s show as
well as Jason and Alan were Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Fred
Macaulay (a Scottish comedian). Emma was on because she is currently
on Strictly Come Dancing. Alan has shaved his head just now because
of the play he is currently doing in London.
Jason was wearing a black suit and a lovely open necked slate blue
shirt that looked like silk, with a thong round his neck with some
kind of pendant on it – presumably the necklace that Lily chose for
him - and the obligatory red poppy that most people on UK TV are
wearing at this time of year.
The program was a mixture of the latest news and celebrity gossip.
Each of the guests got a small discussion about what they are
currently up to, so for Jason they mentioned The State Within and
Brotherhood (which apparently is getting excellent reviews). Jason
said he is not supposed to call The State Within a
thriller, it’s supposed to be a
thriller. He said he gets his kit off at some point in the show. He
joked about the amount of food real ambassadors have to eat as part
of their job, and also joked that as a result he was wearing a
corset underneath his shirt.
Graham actually did most of the talking – you know what Graham is
Jason didn’t say a great deal, but did join in the discussion every
now and again. As usual with Graham, it got pretty blue quite often!
Jason didn’t really get chance to shine tonight IMO. There was one
funny remark when, after showing Emma dancing, Jason asked the other
guys if they’d ever worn high heels – none of them actually answered
Jason mentioned that
he had been in the Spice Girls movie, but he was cut out because he
had been directed to "come on" to Emma, and all he did was stare at
her breasts, so in the end he wasn't in it.
Alan was in the movie though.
Fred Macaulay pointed out that he had paid to see the movie - and he
asked Emma for a refund!
No pictures were shown from any websites of any of the guests. A
video of Emma and others from Strictly Come Dancing singing (I’ve
forgotten what) for a charity record was shown. Each guest had a
mock-up photo-manipulation based on current news made for them –
Jason’s was him as Saddam Hussein!!
