Graham is joined by Oscar winners Dame Judi Dench and Jennifer Hudson, who talk about the new film version of Cats. Hollywood stars Hugh Grant and Matthew McConaughey discuss their new action thriller The Gentlemen. And everyone's favourite crooner Michael Buble drops in for a chat. Plus music guests Coldplay, with an exclusive performance from their new album Everyday Life.

Dame Judi and Jennifer did their best, but Cats still looks completely bonkers and not something I'm going to pay to see.

"I'm a slimeball private investigator working for a tabloid newspaper, which of course is witty casting." Oh, Hugh Grant, never change. I just love his self-deprecating, dry wit.

Ugh, Michael Bublé. I hate how he imitates his wife's accent. It sounds so condescending.

"Michael Bublé is going to meet his Michael Dublé!" Hee. Graham was so delighted with that line.

Yes, Dame Judi and Jennifer Hudson were valiantly fighting an uphill battle. I loved the sick burns mild-mannered Chris Martin landed on Hugh Grant, who knew he had it in him? Grant took it in stride and was as always entertaining in his grumpy self-deprecating ways. 

ETA: McConaughey had a surprisingly quiet appearance, but he seemed quite amused by everybody else.

With you here.  They're never flattering anecdotes, either. If once he'd make himself the brunt of the joke I'd have less of a problem, but as is (and without knowing her at all) it strikes me as contemptuous.

Even as the Most Obvious Joke, I still laughed at the 'rate my prof' entry "All write, all write, all write."

Dench has macular degeneration, so her eyesight is failing. That's going to make anyone a bit unsteady.

Thanks, I hadn't heard that.
