Further details

Mark Wahlberg, talking about his new film Transformers: The Last Knight, says, "It's the last one so I get my life back!"

Revealing that he didn't like the way he looked in the film, he says, "The long hair is the worst thing ever. I look like my mum in the 70s - it's just really bad!"

Asked about getting into shape for the movie, he says, "I'd done Patriots Day just before and had put on as much weight as possible so I had to get back in shape. I took to running and working out. I incorporated my golf obsession with my workout regime and started running golf courses - I'd hit the ball, sprint to the ball and hit it again. I did that for five months!"

Sienna Miller, talking about meeting Mark for the first time at the Golden Globes, says, "I met him just six months after having a baby and I was still breast feeding but what he doesn't know is that when he very sweetly gave me a big hug I lactated all over him!" Mark says, "I had no idea, but it is the Golden Globes so anything can happen!"

Asked about starring in the West End production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Sienna says, "Rehearsing a play is my favourite thing of all time but then I have to do it, which is the scary part!"

Tom Holland, talking about being cast as Spiderman, which he describes as, "Surreal," says, "My life has flipped upside down in the last few weeks."

Asked about auditioning for the role and being one of 1500 actors up for it, he says, "It was a crazy process. The further I got down the line the more I really wanted the job and every day was searching the Internet for any bit of news of casting. After about five or six months of auditioning Marvel posted on their website that I was the new Spiderman. I thought they would call me at least! Marvel apologise about it all the time and I think they told me not to anyone... I have been travelling the world telling that story over and over again!"

Talking more about the audition process, he says, "I got very nervous about meeting Robert Downey Jnr as I have been a fan of his my entire life and when I met him I was thinking, "You look different in person, something isn't quite the same. And then Robert walked in and I realised I had been chatting to his stunt double!"

Asked about his parents involvement in his life, the 20-year old says, "I have been looking to move out for a couple of years and while I was away my mother told me she had found the most amazing apartment for me. It looked nice enough so I told her to put in an offer and she said, "I've done it, it's gone through and it's yours." So basically she bought me a flat with my money! It is lovely but I would have liked a little say in the whole process! My plan was to go to LA and live in America and I now live just a stone's throw from my parents!"

Asked to give Tom some advice if he ever does decide to move to LA, Mark says, "I am the last person he should take advice from. Though you should move to LA and get a Jacuzzi. Have some fun dude! Have some fun for me - I'm married with four kids and I just get yelled at!"

Woody Harrelson and Andy Serkis join Graham and his other guests for a chat.

Woody talking about his and Andy's new film War for the Planet of the Apes, which he describes as, "Amazing," says, "It is without question the biggest production I have been in, no question - it is huge," Adding jokingly, "Now the Han Solo thing has sort of eclipsed it a little bit!"

Andy, talking about his chimpanzee character's Caesar development over a number of films, says, "Old Caesar is less taxing physically. Playing him as an infant was a lot of physical pressure on the body," before demonstrating how to sound and look like a primate. Using calling sounds and moving on all fours he brilliantly does impressions of both a chimp and an ape. Tom, trying his best to emulate Andy looks a lot like Spiderman!

Introduced by Andy in the unique voice of Gollum, Alison Moyet performs The Rarest Birds live in the studio, before joining Graham for a chat.

Talking about returning to college to study sculpture, and asked if she knew she would be good at it, Alison says, "I knew I would be good with my hands - I am really good at wallpaper hanging and I liked the idea of doing something dexterous."

Asked if there might be an exhibition of her work, she says, "I haven't thought that far, I just like doing stuff and participating. It's a weird thing - I do music but don't listen to music and I write poetry but I don't read and I do art but I know nothing about artists."

Talking about commuting back from college in London to her home in Brighton, and asked if she is recognised, she says, I get the late train and no recognises me - I look a sight and am as rough as you like. I actually think people avoid me because I look like a bag lady! I was on the train the other night and managed to get seat - there were two businessmen opposite me and a smart young lady next to me and I was crammed in with all my bags and covered in plaster and clay and as she was leaving she pushed over her leftovers and said, "Would you like my food!"
