This show saw Jonathan Ross (aka 'Wossy') interview A-list guests - from Tom Cruise to John Travolta to Nicole Kidman - in his candid and frequently unpredictable way.

The host's irreverent humour takes no prisoners and never lets his guests off the hook. But, with his charm and flamboyant style, he fosters an atmosphere that allows guests to relax and open up and allows the viewers in.

Jonathan's gags include candid confessions about his family life, snarky takes on the news, and demonstrations of odd products.

The house band, 4 Poofs and a Piano, perform a short song to introduce each guest. Each episode closes with a musical performance from an A-list artist or band.
