Clive has a smashing time with The Talented Mr Jack Davenport. Launching his acting career by playing law graduate Miles Stewart in 'This Life', Jack's starred in 'Coupling' and the first two 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' films. He now plays the womanising director of a Broadway show in the new musical drama 'SMASH', on Sky Atlantic HD from Saturday 21st April at 22.00.

Clive will be having a Dalliance and talking Secrets & Lies with award-winning actress Brenda Blethyn. She returns to Northumberland and to our screens to star as the unlikely cop DCI Vera Stanhope in ITV's detective drama 'Vera'. Series two starts on Sunday 22nd April at 20.00.

Allegra McEvedy plays pass the parcel with self-confessed chubby glamourpuss, writer and comedian Amy Lamé. Commiserations to Amy, who's new show 'Unhappy Birthday' is actually an exuberant culture clash of party, performance and DJ set. The party starts at Camden People's Theatre from 2nd May and then on a UK tour.

Clive will Release A Star, in the form of folk-pop royalty, Rufus Wainwright, who will be talking about his glittering career, sumptuous, theatrical stage shows, Prima Donna's and becoming a dad. He'll be treating us to a performance of 'Out Of The Game' from his album of the same name.

And bringing beats and bass lines into the Loose Ends studio, The Vocal Orchestra will be beatboxing 'Everybody Daydream', taken from their current E4 Udderbelly show created by Shlomo at London's Southbank Centre. They perform there nightly until Sunday 27 May.

Producer Cathie Mahoney.
