#326 Depp Fry Rice Ball - Great news! RHLSTP has been recommissioned for a record breaking 21st series and Rich has had a makeover to make him look like a rock star. His guest is lifelong liar and former thief Anneka Rice. They discuss Blankety Blank being the pinnacle of the showbiz ladder; how an enforced change of name might have changed everything; the hidden dangers of Treasure Hunt and who might have been the sky runner had they not been so athletic; the down side of fame and how Anneka bribed the paparazzi; what it was like to have your birth canal depicted on Spitting Image; attempting to track down her Madame Tussauds head; why she pretended to be her own agent and how Clemmie took on a life of her own; turning down the chance to be a Bond girl; taking revenge on the school bully and the power of chucking yourself into stuff and hoping for the best. All this and a possible pedo ghost.
