for two days".
Dec: "I'm not keen on birds, we had some
emus, the scariest of all".
They also reveal their dream celebrity
hit list, would include Mr T from The A-Team and Christopher

but they never listen".
On why they love the show, Ant said: "It's a loose
format, we can have fun and watch them [celebrities], react
like everyone does at home. You end up having a laugh."
Jonathan also welcomes to the show BBC TWO's The
Apprentice ringmaster Sir Alan
Sugar who talks about his new life as a TV celebrity, and why he
left the world of football: "The
football industry has made me a grumpy old sod.
"The football media's got the
biggest load of brain-dead in it. Every time you said a word, everyone became
your enemy. Fortunately I'm out of it, I'm recovering."
And the show also includes an appearance from Green
Wing star Tamsin Greig, with music from Gorillaz.
Friday Night with Jonathan Ross is on Friday 31 March 2006 at 10.40pm on BBC ONE.
