Friday Night with Jonathan Ross
In tonight's show, Jonathan Ross talks to Coronation Street star and Oasis fan Bradley Walsh, who reveals that he's staying in the soap: "I've just signed for another year".

He talks about his early days as a Pontins Blue Coat: "I thought 'Why don't I just get paid for messing around [at Pontins]?' And after two months I got fired for just messing around".

He discusses his subsequent success as an actor working alongside Sir Ian McKellen - "There are a lot of big actors who want to be in the show; he said he was quite daunted" - and how he's a big Oasis fan: "Like watching the young Rolling Stones - they're going to be there forever."

Completing this week's line-up are Oscar-nominated actress Juliette Lewis, Colin and Justin, and there is music from Oasis.
