Alexandra Burke, Nick Frost and Harry Potter star Warwick Davis join Jonathan Ross for this week's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross on BBC One.

Alexandra Burke says she nearly gave up on stardom after being rejected by X Factor judge Louis Walsh: "I was really upset, I wanted to give up music.

"I had no interest in going back - my mum forced me."

But she gained confidence as the talent contest went on. "When you get to the final you're fighting more. I didn't think I was going to win."

On her relationship with Simon Cowell she says: "He lets me make my own decisions... He said don't have tattoos [so] I did, three times."

And on Cheryl Cole, Alexandra says: "We have a great relationship, she's really supportive."

Hot Fuzz star Nick Frost says he proposed twice to his wife and was rejected both times. Then she asked him: "I said I want to be wooed [so] she got down on one knee!"

On their wedding cake they had figures of a bride - and a gorilla. And Nick says he grew a moustache "because it upset my wife!"

Warwick Davis, Professor Flitwick in the Harry Potter films, says he wants to have his own chat show: "I'd call it Small Talk!"

And he reveals that the new Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant sitcom Life's Too Short is based on his life and that they'll all play themselves:
"We look ridiculous walking down the street together - like the evolution of man!"

Notes

Ellie Goulding performed Guns And Horses.
