Sir David Attenborough joins Jonathan Ross on
BBC One

Sir David Attenborough

Sir David Attenborough joins Jonathan Ross this week on his BBC One show Friday Night With Jonathan Ross and talks about the possibility of Yetis existing.

He says: "I'm baffled by the Abominable Snowman, very convincing footprints have been found at 19,000 feet. No one does that for a joke. I think it's unanswered."

He also tells Jonathan that it may be impossible to halt climate change: "We can never go back, there's no doubt about that... it's the speed at which we're changing. Before it was thousands of years and now it's decades... but we can slow down the rate at which we change."

U2

Bono also joins Jonathan and reveals the meaning behind the title of U2's latest single, Get On Your Boots – it's East African slang for "use a condom" – "In all sincerity, I haven't even told the band that before."

And actor Clive Owen admits he never wanted to be Bond: "Complete media speculation... I'm happy doing what I'm doing."

Jonathan is also joined by Emily Blunt and rock icons U2 perform Breathe and Get On Your Boots live in the studio.

A Hotsauce TV production for BBC One.
