Hardip Singh Kohli
This week Hardeep Singh Kohli is joined by Alistair McGowan, Hugh Miles, Doremy Vernon and Chris Difford.
ALISTAIR MCGOWAN
Alistair McGowan is probably best known to British audiences as the celebrity impersonator of TV's 'Big Impression', in which he won a BAFTA. He has also worked extensively in theatre with starring roles in Endgame, Art, Little Shop of Horrors and most recently The Mikado. He is making his directorial debut in a production of Noel Coward's classic comedy Semi-Monde at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama from 7th to 10th April.

HUGH MILES
Hugh Miles is a journalist. In his book Playing Cards in Cairo he tells of how he meets and falls in love with Roda, a beautiful doctor, whilst working in Cairo. She introduces him to Egypt's favourite pastime, the card game tarneeb, to her all-female card circle, and to a previously unseen side of life in Cairo. Playing Cards in Cairo: Mint Tea, Tarneeb and Tales of the City is published by Abacus.

DOREMY VERNON
Doremy Vernon is a former Tiller Girl and actor. She is giving a talk about the history of the Tiller Girls at Blackpool's Grand Theatre as part of Entertaining Blackpool, an event that will showcase the performers who have appeared in the resort throughout the years.
Doremy's talk about the history of the Tiller Girls is at Blackpool's Grand Theatre on Sunday 6th April at 11am.   They are keen to trace ex-Tiller Girls from the 1978 reunion show - for more information please email: admissionallclasses@blackpool.gov.uk.

CHRIS DIFFORD
Chris Difford is the singer/songwriter, formerly of the band Squeeze. He has just released his first solo album for five years, The Last Temptation of Chris. Here the songs tackle topics like being a good father, vasectomy reversal and money - all subjects he knows little about.
The Last Temptation of Chris is out 7th April on Stiff Records. He tours the UK in April and May with Boo Hewerdine.
