John Barrowman says he is looking forward to his new role in Desperate Housewives but hasn't said goodbye to Torchwood: "I love playing Captain Jack... I have no clue what's going to happen... I would go back in a second."

Lorraine Kelly says you shouldn't diet: "I don't think you should ever say, 'I'm not eating chocolate'." And she thinks parents could prevent child obesity: "Mothers have a huge responsibility. If your kids see you dieting, they're going to think that's normal behaviour. Don't go overboard."

Shahrukh Khan tells Jonathan he turned down Slumdog Millionaire because he's a real-life Millionaire host in India: "I was very keen for that film to be made... I didn't do it because the host was a bit of a cheat, and I thought people might think I'd do the same thing!"

He refuses to kiss on screen: "Personally I'm awkward kissing on screen so I don't do it... there's no private moment on the set." But he loves his fame: "I've worked very hard to be recognised so I never go out in disguise."

Shahrukh's biggest ambition is to co-star with Jackie Chan. And he says he has autographed his body-scan print-outs for fans at Heathrow Security.


John Barrowman performed Copacabana.

Marina & the Diamonds performed Hollywood.
