A brand new 12 part series begins on Radio Scotland on Saturday 22 May entitled "Wives with Knives (and Spoons and Tunes)". We asked presenter Liz Clark to tell us more about it:

We all have our own impressions of how Scotland's sporting celebrities spend their lives. We imagine lives full of glamour and excitement!

In Wives with Knives and Spoons and Tunes we're invited into the family homes and kitchens of the top names in Scottish Sport.

We're cooking, listening to music and chatting about what life is really like at home with the 'other halves' of the top names in Scottish football, rugby, snooker and athletics.

It's a real eye-opener and, for me, it's been difficult to pick a highlight from making the series because there have been so many. It's been a real pleasure to be welcomed into the homes of people who have to live their lives in the public eye but who now share the ups and downs of their real lives with the Radio Scotland listeners.

There are surprises, emotional moments and lots of laughs from the homes of Scotland's sporting stars in Wives with Knives and Spoons and Tunes with me, Liz Clark.

The first episode of Wives with Knives (and Spoons and Tunes) broadcasts on Saturday, 22 May at 1805 and features Marlene Smith, the wife of former Scottish SFA chief executive Gordon Smith.

    Funny how one hears a voice on the radio and forms a mental picture of the speaker. In my mind Liz Clark has curly hair.

    Liz, (May I call you Liz?)

    I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed Chick Young's programme on Old Firm managers, but I'm not sure he can maintain the standard for five weeks without a lot of repetitive repetition.

    Or maybe I just prefer the radio when it's not being dominated by soccer matches.
