With Sharon Horgan

3 hours
First broadcast:
Thursday 20 December 2012

Comedy writer and actress Sharon Horgan talks to Shaun abut her new programme 'Secrets of a Good Marriage' which starts on the 2nd January on Channel 4.

Sharon gate-crashes six very different marriages and a wedding in a bid to open up the private world of husbands and wives. Sharon says, 'everyone knows what they want from a wedding - drunk by noon, quick kiss from the bridesmaid, chocolate fountain - but what do we want from a marriage?' She admits marriage is a serious, lifelong commitment but nobody tells you how to do it. She meets six different couples to explore the essence of a lifelong and happy marriage. She wants to find out how they've made it work and what she can learn about marriage from their relationships.

Shaun delivers northern witty wisdom, expels another wriggly Earworm track, and plays tunes to gladden the heart.

Plus there's a killer Touch Me In The Morning track lurking in the playlist to make you sob like a baby. Tissues at the ready!

And up-to-the minute music news courtesy of news horse (and former Menswear drummer) Matt Everitt. Plus reaction to The Cheddar Cheese Song keeps on rolling in...
