Graham was joined by Anne Reid and Jane Asher

First broadcast:
Saturday 05 February 2011

Graham was joined by the actress who played Ken Barlow's first wife, the lovely Anne Reid. She told Graham about her new drama 'Marchlands' and what it was like to work alongside Daniel Craig in 'The Mother'. Fellow actress Jane Asher also popped in, but forgot to bring a cake; but we forgave her... just.

Maria McErlane helped Graham with a couple more 'Grill Graham' problems: Moira in Stockport was getting tired of people using her front garden as a rubbish bin; and Ray in Ealing explained that after being with his partner for 19 years he'd become bored and wanted to move on - but is the grass always greener?

Dave in Hemel Hempstead chose this week's 'I Can't Believe It's Not Better' song which was Russ Abbot's 1984 Top 10 hit 'Atmosphere', and Rebecca Bartlett from Dorset nominated '18 Yellow Roses' by Bobby Darin as the latest 'Tune with a Tale'.
