Sharon Corr is also Sir Terry's guest, best known for being a member of the Irish music sensation The Corrs, Sharon's singing live on the show, including her brand new solo single - 'Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime'.

Chef and TV Presenter of BBC One's Saturday Kitchen James Martin also pops in for a chat.
