S10 - Christmas Nibbles

To round off 2020, I invited a handful of our favourite Table Manners guests back for our very own little Christmas drinks do! (Via zoom of course ) I didn’t tell mum who was coming...hence the screams!! Who listens to Mariah Carey ‘All I Want For Christmas’ all year round??

Pour yourself a glass of mulled wine crack open the...

S10 Ep 13: Gemma Arterton

The greatest compliment I have ever received is that my doppelgänger is this week's guest Gemma Arterton, so obviously I discussed that with her, as well as our shared love of marmite and peanut butter and how we both have a sister called Hannah. Gemma tells us about growing up in Gravesend, eating Yak, her love of baking, filming in the Nepalese mountains & cheese being her one true love. Gemma stars in Black Narcissus which airs on BBC1 on Christmas Day so make sure you tune in!...

This is a BIG one!!! Straight out of Nashville, the one and only Country ICON Dolly Parton joins us on Table Manners. We chatted to Dolly - dressed head to toe in festive gear - back in October, before her beautiful book Storyteller had reached these shores and before we knew she had potentially helped cure covid with her generous donation to help fund a covid vaccine. As well as telling us all about cosying up with Michael Buble on her new christmas record ‘A Holly Dolly Christmas’ she...

S10 Ep 10: Yungblud

(Warning, I think this guest swears more than me) Before we entered Lockdown 2.0, we had the pleasure of high tea’ing with a young gentleman by the name of Yungblud at mum's. Whilst sipping on champagne and eating sausage rolls, Dominic talks all about Hobnobs, Yorkshire tea & his mum’s Doncaster cake shop ‘Jaffa & Cakes’, named after the family sausage dog. He tells us about his rockstar lifestyle; hanging out in 'Hollyweird', nights out with Brooklyn Beckham, elephant tattoos & just...

Now we’re back in a UK lockdown, Simon has...


S10 Ep 8: Cat Deeley

I think this week's guest loves Champagne even more than mum does! Queen of the telly @catdeeley came over for scallops and plenty of champers and we had a jolly good laugh. Cat talks to us about growing up in Birmingham, meeting her husband on Fame Academy, his movie style declaration of love, making it stateside & we reminisce about SMTV days with @antanddec She swapped her pudding for another glass of champagne and proudly admitted to having bad table manners - Cat, we salute you!

"Her name is Shea Couleé, and she didn't come to play, she came to slay!” & THAT THEY DID!!! We were lucky enough to get RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Winner on Table Manners this week and what a dream it was. I've been a HUGE fan of Drag Race (Mama Ru please can I be a guest judge) so it was a pleasure to have the generous, kind and BEYOND fabulous reigning champ Shea tell us about the creation of Ms Couleé, learning to do makeup & who’s their best drag queen friend. Currently living in...


S10 Ep 6: Dawn French

As you know - mum's chicken soup comes out for the big guns and this week's guest is no exception.

A fellow foodie, Dawn tells us all about what makes the Cornish pasty, her favourite eating spots in Cornwall, making ‘breakfast cake’ in lockdown and her experience of boarding school dinners and butter. We talk about disastrous auditions, a shared love of...


S10 Ep 5: Grace Dent

The fantastically glamorous Grace Dent arrived in Clapham having already won mum over with her leopard print dress as soon as she step through the door. The broadcaster, author and restaurant critic joined us round the dinner table for mum's delicious harissa meatballs whilst mum and I fawned over her every word. We heard about her dad’s famous ‘Sketty’, her love of Angel Delight and a drink she describes as ‘Happiness In A Glass’ - a Pina Colada. The Masterchef regular tells us about...

Or that Chris hosted the world Parmo making competition? Full of exclusives this...


S10 Ep 3: Kylie Minogue

This is big. This is huge!!!!! The one and only ultimate pop princess and style icon arrived in Clapham, followed by paparazzi on a hump day. Kylie was the first concert I ever went too and we named our guinea pigs after her (and Jason) so who can blame me for the fangirl situation! Kylie tells us all about her upbringing in Australia and her journey to fame, where Charlene's famous overalls are now & how she’ll only have a questionable half sized cup of tea. As if we couldn’t love her...


S10 Ep 2: James Bay

He didn't wear the hat, but Lennie still loved having James Bay round for dinner. The 'Hold Back The River' heart-throb joined us at mum's for Some Coq Au Riesling (thanks for the recommendation Mr McIntyre), a Passionate Eton mess and plenty of the most delicious red wine courtesy of James. We spoke about busking, his legendary Grammys performance, jumping up and down on a trampoline with Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley, writing his 3rd album and eating cold Heinz Five Beanz. Whadda guy, what a...

It's season 10 and we bagged a podcast newbie! Mr Michael McIntyre - we knew we’d love you but now we are absolutely HOOKED! You have finally broken my fear of watching comedy, with this front row seat to your hilarity and three hours of laughing 'til we cried!
