First broadcast:
Saturday 22 January 2011

With Graham in the studio this week were the evergreen Alison Streadman and the one and only Lenny Henry. Alison revealed all about her days playing a greenfly and how she hoped there'd be more Gavin and Stacey, while Lenny told us about bearly being beaten by Rolf Harris! Plus Graham and Lenny had a good old moan about the price of rock cakes...

In this week's Grill Graham there was advice for Eric, whose neighbour never paid his half of a taxi home from the station, and possible solutions were offered to Brad whose textual nosiness had led him to believe his girlfriend was cheating. (She was.)

Phil in Fleetwood picked Sinitta's 'Toy Boy' in 'I Can't Believe It's Not Better' while Amanda in Muston interpreted Barbra Streisand's 'Letters That Cross in the Mail' for 'Tune with a Tale'.
