Sir Bryn Terfel joins Kate and Jason

Operatic singer Sir Bryn Terfel joins the Rev Kate Bottley and Jason Mohammad.

After five years, the bass-baritone opera singer, Sir Bryn Terfel is back with his eagerly-anticipated new studio album ‘Dreams and Songs’. It’s a collection of his favourite songs, recorded in brand new orchestral versions and including some special guest duets including Rob Brydon.

Sir Bryn tells Jason about balancing his career, family life and the demands of learning new operatic roles. And he tells Good Morning Sunday why Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody tops his 'Dinner Party' playlist.

Plus we meet this week's Charity Champion. David Bragg who was one of the founders of 'Send A Cow' which started by sending dairy cattle to Africa.

Ross Edgley

Ross Edgley
Earlier this month Ross Edgley completed a record breaking swim around the coast of mainland Great Britain. Swimming 1, 792 miles in 157 days the physical and mental toll he experienced was extraordinary. Ross joins Kate and Jason to tell them how he pushed himself to stay in the water to complete the challenge even though he was fighting 70mph winds, jellyfish stings and a disintegrating tongue.
