Gareth Malone and Marc Warren join Richard

Choirmaster Gareth Malone tells Richard about his performance with the South Oxhey Choir at Westminster's Central Hall this week. He tells Richard about why he chose the Hertfordshire suburb as a place for his choir and the success they have achieved over the last 2 years.

Gareth explains why being in a choir is more fun than being in a football team and why he's just lost interest in The X Factor.

Marc Warren tells Richard about his role in the Jimmy McGovern drama "The Accused". His character commits manslaughter in revenge for sexual assault. He muses over how he would react in a similar situation.

Marc also reveals why the TV mini-series Band of Brothers was like being drafted into the real army, and how he almost walked off set.

Priti Patel MP reacts to the proposals by her own government for reforming prison sentencing. She suggests in the second hour that the Justice Secretary Ken Clarke is out of step with the British public.

And in the TV review, Kevin O'Sullivan and Boyd Hilton give their verdicts on the final of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, Kirstie and Phil's Perfect Christmas, The House That Made Me, and Coronation Street.
