Shereen: Favourite show of the year
Today's show was my favourite of the year. The last Sunday in October is always my favourite show of the year- an extra hour in bed!
It seemed to do my panel the world of good too. Severin Carrell, David Torrance, and Lucy Adams started arguing the minute they arrived in the building and didn't stop when we went on air. David Torrance was desperate to talk about the impending Scottish Tory leadership election (isn't he always?) and gave his tip for Friday's winner. Everyone got stuck in to the Occupy protests at St Paul's, debating whether it's hypocritical to call yourself anti-capitalist and get your coffee from Starbucks and whether the church is being hypocritical in wanting to move them on.
Crime writer Val McDermid was this week's special guest and was great fun talking about her childhood, learning to talk posh, and upsetting the lesbian "sisterhood".
Finally, a lovely moment to end on, the Real life Slum Dog Millionaire talking about how he's going to spend the money he won on the Indian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Heart warming stuff. Enjoy!
