Series 16, Episode 21 - Shappi Khorsandi, Tim Henman, Blue, Florence and the Machine
Joining Jonathan Ross
this week is Centre Court 'hero' Tim Henman
; born-again boy band Blue
; Iranian-born comedian Shappi Khorsandi
; and there's music from ethereal pop sensation Florence and the Machine, who perform Rabbit Heart
live in the studio.
Jonathan Ross welcomes Tim Henman to this week's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross. He says that he thinks Brits lack grit: "Our kids get comfortable too early... our kids don't have that determination." He also says of Andy Murray: "I think Andy will go on to far bigger things than I achieved... he'll win multiple slams, he's that good." He denies he lacked killer instinct as a player: "If you don't think you're going to win it's not worth turning up. I fancied my chances at Wimbledon... but there was always Sampras!" Finally, he admits he's glad he isn't playing now: "I don't miss it, I stopped at the right time."
Jonathan is also joined by boy band Blue, who announce their new album to mark their tenth anniversary. Lee Ryan says he's seen aliens, believes in extra-terrestrials and killer squid.
Florence and the Machine performed Rabbit heart.
