Miles Jupp

Extraordinary stories, unusual people and a sideways look at the world. Miles Jupp, magician, soldier and Britain's Got Talent winner Richard Jones, and cliff diver Blake Aldridge.

Miles Jupp joins the Rev Richard Coles and Aasmah Mir and shares his love of cricket, rollercoasters and why he is possibly the poshest stand-up comedian on the circuit.

Lance Corporal Richard Jones from the Household Cavalry reveals how he combines being a magician alongside his military career.

Plus a trio of extreme sports enthusiasts: Blake Aldridge on why he left the world of Olympic diving to become a cliff diver, Emily Guilding explains the appeal of wing walking and why she performs headstands strapped to the wings of a plane and Saturday Live listener Romy Shovelton who races camels in her spare time.

Plus the Inheritance Tracks of the former head of the army Lord Richard Dannatt, High on a Hill by the Band and Bugles Of The Light Division and Highland Cathedral by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guard.

Miles Jupp's stand-up tour Songs Of Freedom starts on September 7th at the Stables in Milton Keynes, and continues around the UK finishing in February 2017.
Richard Jones is starring in the Impossible magic show, at the Noel Coward Theatre in London until the 27th August.
