Series 18, Episode 24 - Jimmy Carr, Penn & Teller, Ellen Page, Sir Tom Jones
Sir Tom tells Jonathan that he didn't party the night away on his 70th. "It was quiet on my birthday - I didn't want to broadcast it."
He shares his memories of hanging out with Elvis and singing late-night gospel with him in Vegas, and how Elvis sang to him in the shower: "I couldn't understand it," he says. "He used to mumble a lot!"
Tom also provides the music tonight and performs Burning Hell from his new album, Praise & Blame.
Comedian Jimmy Carr tells Jonathan how he sometimes gets mistaken for tennis star Roger Federer and that he writes 250 one-liners before each new tour.
He admits he's petrified of doing live TV, and says: "I found it absolutely terrifying," although he confirms he will do more.
Canadian actress Ellen Page, meanwhile, reveals she used to live in a haunted former brothel.
Ellen tells Jonathan how Tom Hardy got papped teaching her how to fight on the set of Inception: "It looked like he was beating up a little girl!"
She also reveals that she's nocturnal: "I'm a sleep-walker - I have night hallucinations."
Jonathan is also joined by illusionists Penn & Teller, who criticise David Blaine: "He thinks trick is a dirty word - we couldn't disagree more."
Sir Tom Jones performed Burning Hell.
