Further details

Anne Hathaway, talking about working with Rebel Wilson in their new film The Hustle, and meeting her for the first time, says, "Rebel has a 'larger than life' life so when she tells you things that have happened to her they are very hard to believe, but amazing things do happen to her and she is a genius."

Asked about her British accent in the film, Anne says, "I found out I had to do it a week before we started shooting. I thought if I didn't do it, it wouldn't make a difference, but the director insisted. I've done it before and it hasn't always gone well, and it is so stressful to see someone struggle through an accent, so I got a dialect coach and made the best of it."

Rebel interjects, "As the producer, I gave her all the accents and I was cast as Australian, so I did no prep!"

Talking about her three-year-old son, Anne admits he's not her greatest fan, "He does not like my singing voice at all. When I sing he puts his hand up and says, 'Mama no! Mama no!' He is a very tough crowd. Recently though, I was singing something from Peppa Pig and he let me continue. I was crying and singing!"

Rebel, joking about producing the movie says, "They gave me $40m and said, 'Go for it.' I asked Annie how much she wanted, I got some and we had really good catering. The film actually worked out well!"

Talking about the rating of the movie, she says, "They gave it an 'R' for 'rude' and, as the producer, I had to go and represent the film to the board. I did a massive presentation and analysis of films starring men and women and proved they were being sexist. The jury was out for five minutes and they change the rating to a PG. I crushed it!"

Jodie Comer, talking about the global success of Killing Eve, says modestly, "It's been a good year!" Asked if there have extreme reactions to her from fans of the series, she says, "A lot of people just look at me in a 'Is it her' sort of way, but recently I had a really strange one - a woman asked for a photograph with me and then she whispered in my ear, 'Will you strangle me?' I said, 'No!'"

Asked about the new series, she says, "There is a lot more pressure because of expectations and everyone is waiting on tenterhooks for it to come out, but once you start filming, you just have to put that to one side."

Daniel Radcliffe, talking about being the voice of super-spy Rex Dasher in Playmobil: The Movie, says, "When people meet me in America and hear my English accent, they say, 'You should play James Bond'. I know, and everyone here knows, I will never be James Bond, but playing a Bond-like Playmobil character felt much more likely!"

Asked about having a Playmobil figure made of him, he says, "The director sent me a really well-meaning text that said, 'Congratulations, you're a toy!' I was like, 'I don't want to rain on your parade, but I have been a toy a lot!' It sounds conceited thing to say, but it's not. It's been a weird factor of my life."

Mabel performs Don't Call Me Up live in the studio, before joining Graham for a chat.

Asked about her debut album, she says, "It's so exciting. It's been two years of really hard work just figuring it out."

Admitting she is a huge Harry Potter fan, she tells Daniel, "I have been trying to play it cool, but I have been really stressing because I am your biggest fan. You taught me to read, I used to dress up as you and I'd camp outside the cinemas."

Daniel asks if she has been sorted into a house. Mabel says, "I am Ravenclaw. I want to be Gryffindor but I am Ravenclaw. I've accepted that's who I am."
