Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, aka Sir Michael Caine, the boy from South East London, who went on to massive cinematic success in films such as "The Ipcress File", "Alfie", "The Italian Job", "Get Carter", "Educating Rita", "Hannah and Her Sisters", "The Cider House Rules" and "The Muppet Christmas Carol" joined Chris in the studio for Breakfast.

Sir Michael judged Head to Headlines, played some of his favourite music, and was the subject of the Top Tenuous - he also talked about the release of his book "The Elephant to Hollywood" which is to be published in paperback.

Michael is one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade from the 1960s to 2000s (the other one being Jack Nicholson).

In 2000, he was knighted by the Queen, in recognition of his contribution to cinema.
