This afternoon Steve, Tim Smith and Janey Lee Grace chat with top chef Marco Pierre White about his latest book and his love of using things from jars, Glee's Jonathan Groff talks about living in London for his latest West End role and singer KT Tunstall reveals who her new single Still A Weirdo is about.

In today's fascinating Factoids, find out what the world's most deadly mushroom is, how old an oak tree has to be before it bears acorns and which melts faster - clean or dirty snow.

In the top notch Talkie bits, Steve reveals where the Big Show came in this year's coolest brands and how scientists have used magnets to alter which hand people use to write with.

The Oldies today have been chosen by Martin Walvin from Worksop who tickles the airwaves with a classic Queen number, and some cheeky 80s one hit wonders from Spagna and Baltimora.
