Nigel Slater hosts a biographical chat show exploring the lives and loves of celebrities through their experiences of food. Nigel takes Sue Johnston of Waking the Dead and The Royle Family on a nostalgic journey back through her days at The Cavern in Liverpool, eating lemon meringue, hanging out with The Beatles, and discovering boys. Liverpool FC's Jamie Carragher challenges Nigel and Sue to make some chicken and pasta.

Fellow actress and friends Maggie Steed and Margot Leicester recreate some dishes from their hippy days in the 70s - when Sue was stockpiling food for the revolution!

Sue also talks candidly about her brittle relationship with her mother.
