A Taste of My Life, Series 2 Episode 1 of 9

Duration: 30 minutes

Nigel Slater hosts a chat show which explores the lives and loves of celebrities through their personal experiences of food.

Torchwood star John Barrowman is Nigel's guest as he discusses the difficulties of coming out to his family. He is reduced to tears as his parents in Florida rustle up a banana cake from his childhood - and tell him how much they love him.

He talks about getting married to his partner Scott and his brother and sister send over some foody messages from Chicago. Actress Suranne Jones remembers working with John in the West End and challenges him to pull together 'bin chicken' - which literally means fried chicken eaten over a dustbin!
