Nigel Slater hosts a biographical chat show exploring the lives and loves of celebrities through their experiences of food. Timothy Spall remembers himself as a child - fat, lazy and useless - over chicken and chips. He shares in his fight to overcome leukaemia, and reveals how he used to eat like a vulture. His family surprise him by rustling up Christmas Lunch in his honour. Hollywood actor Sam Neill bakes him a salmon, and fellow actor Kenneth Cranham challenges him and Nigel to make steak and kidney pie.
