Last night Vicky and myself went to the good ol' BBC to see Parkinson being recorded. My suspicions that this filming would be airing this Saturday were confirmed — the guests were Patrick Stewart, Lionel Richie and Harry Connick Jnr. It was an excellent show, Parkie and Patrick Stewart were excellent together, both slowly regresssing into Northern accents and reminising about the poverty of their youth. Harry Connick Jnr played two classic songs, and is a very relaxed, amusing and shocking ("pile of buttons", eek) guest. Lionel Richie played his new single and was also good fun. Even the warm-up comedian was quite amusing, making the production team the butt of most of his jokes and learning how to chat up Harry Connick Jnr's band in Turkish.
Overall a great night out, and considering the cost of the tickets (nothing), great value for money! I shall be investigating into getting ourself on the very long queue for Have I Got News For You next.
