Fresh from his bug-chomping triumph on I'm a Celeb, Harry Redknapp settles down for a chat on the sofa, joined by another football luminary (and Liam Neeson defender), John Barnes. Naomi Campbell rounds out an eccentric collection of guests, while Dido provides the music, ahead of her first tour in 15 years.

Ross launches a new run of his chatshow, joined by a sofa full of famous faces, including Captain Marvel co-stars Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson alongside The Voice UK coaches Jennifer Hudson and Will.i.am, plus comedian and Strictly black sheep Seann Walsh. Music is from Bryan Adams.

A rare boon for Rossy, who so often seems to be beaten to the A-listers by Graham Norton: this week he's managed to reunite the Spice Girls! Well, four of them - Victoria Beckham is missing from the sofa as well as the arena tour the group have just announced. Perhaps they could convince Kylie Minogue, performing here alongside Jack Savoretti, to join in her stead? Playing very much second fiddle to Baby, Scary, Ginger and Sporty is John Bishop, who will be discussing his latest standup DVD and recent UKTV series.

Strictly's Shirley, Darcey and Craig join Jonathan on the sofa tonight, alongside the man Theresa May models her own dance moves on: Peter Crouch. All this plus comedian Joe Lycett, Black Earth Rising's Michaela Coel and a previous Ivor Novello awards songwriter of the year, Tom Odell, performing in the studio.

It's pretty much a Bake Off special this week as Ross quizzes judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith and presenter Noel Fielding about the current series of the cookery show. OK, so there's no Sandi Toksvig, but comedy awaits courtesy of Mo Gilligan and music is supplied by Olly Murs.

Jonathan Ross interview

The king of chat reveals his biggest regrets -- and what he thinks of The Graham Norton Show.

Michael Hodges, Radio Times, 22nd September 2018

A new series begins with guests Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish, in town to talk about their new comedy Night School; Mel Giedroyc, about to appear in a gender-reversed West End production of Sondheim musical Company; comedian Rob Beckett and Marvel star Dave Bautista. Plus music from Jess Glynne.

Now here's a disparate bunch: Baker-turned-presenter Nadiya Hussain, comic Micky Flanagan and grime don Stormzy. But the real pull is undoubtedly that extraordinary enigma-cum-dazzling fashion and music icon/real-life demi-goddess Grace Jones, promoting Sophie Fiennes's new documentary about her, Bloodlight and Bami. Is it too much to hope she'll mete out the same volley of slaps she once dealt Russell Harty?

Ross has a satisfying lineup this week, with a mix of Hollywood, music and home-grown talent. In the Oscar-winning corner is Jodie Foster, who could be interesting for some post-Weinstein comments. David Walliams works his charm and Roisin Conaty, the rising star of Man Down and GameFace, brings the laughs. Purveyor of fine tunes and stories Debbie Harry drops in for a chat and provides the music with Blondie.

The veteran gabsmith welcomes a fresh phalanx of guests to his studio, including R&B superstar Tina Turner, who recently returned from retirement to work on the musical biopic of her life, which is set to open next year. Also set to sample the green room buffet are controversy courting UFC combatant-cum-professional boxer Conor McGregor, presenter Clare Balding and Spider-Man Andrew Garfield. Plan B brings the tunes.
