I just can't do it, Alex, I can't go on tonight - sorry.
I'm so short sighted I can't read the autocue.
If I could see a friendly face it might put me at ease.
Hello, and welcome to The One Show with Cold Feet's Fay Ripley.
I'm only kidding about tonight's guests - I actually never
It's my great friends Jimmy Nesbitt, Leanne Best and Robert Bathurst!
Good to see it. Thank you for being with us. We are all very excited.
Cold Feet is back on our TV screens tonight and you were at a special
cast screening last night - how was that?
I was basically way too nervous to look at myself.
I didn't see it - was drinking wine with Hermione.
I had some rose and it wasn't too difficult. But you guys watch that?
Actually you're not really in the first one.
LAUGHTER It was all right. Jimmyl and I
cringed at the back. Leanne, what did you think? I thought it was
lovely, I had are tear in my eye. You haven't gotten cynical like us.
And one other thing I think we missed out with Cold Feet over the
years, we couldn't really watch it because we were in it. You couldn't
be objective. But having had such a gap for all those years, then coming
back last year, it feels fresh and nice to see you can see what the
other scenes are about that you're not in. Well, we will talk more
later on. I have a bone to pick
with you, Jimmy Nesbitt - we were in your neck of the woods
a few weeks ago on our Causeway Crawl in Northern Ireland -
where the hell were you? My second home is in Portrush. There
is no point having that if you can't make it on to The One Show! Jimmyl
owns Northern Ireland... You were sorely missed, some extent we will
beat you for every day, because you are the main attraction. A question
for you, do dogs feel guilt? Many owners say yes, including me I
think, but does the science agree? Here Angelika... -- here is
Angelica. When canine friends are guilty of
the owners tell us about it online, but do they really feel guilty about
their bad behaviour? This police officer Steve O'Callaghan regularly
posts pictures online offers mischievous mutts. Do you believe
they shall guilt? Really does show it, head down, looking guiltily at
you. A bit of a giveaway when they have done something naughty. Steve
is not alone. Around three quarters of dog owners believe their dogs can
feel guilt, but can they? I have come to a dog centre in Hull to get
to the bottom of this, to recreate some experiments originally carried
out by scientists in New York. We are testing of that classic look
with a dog might hide, dropped its ears or cower is symbolic of guilt.
The first thing we will do is bring the dogs and their owners in here
and we will ask the owners to place a treat in a ball and tell their
dogs to leave it. The owner will then leave the room. When they are
owed either the dog will eat the treat, like Eddie, we will remove it
from the bowl. When they come back, they will be asked to guess whether
the dog has eat in the treat or not. The challenge, can they owners guess
whether their dog has eaten the treat or not, based on their look
alone? We have rigged the experiment room with hidden cameras, and we
will be watching from the sidelines as the action unfolds. First in the
dock, Eddie. Remember, he did eat the treat after being told not to.
With his turning his head on me, yes. You think he is guilty?
Correct, he was. This is Barney has also eat in the treat after being
told not to. Straightaway. He was in there. Where's the treat? Where has
it gone? I would probably say guilty. They are both guilty of
eating the treat, and the owners think they can tell, but what will
happen when we take the treat away. Will the owners be able to tell
their dogs are innocent? I think Sampson has a very good poker face.
Samson, did you eat the treat? As soon as the owner thought he had
eaten it, his tail went back, and his tail was tucked in. Do you think
he is guilty? Yes. But he isn't. Will Morag's owner work it out?
Morag, what did you do? Oh, no. The dog started barking when the owner
asked the question, have you done something you shouldn't have done,
and the owner's body language changed at that point and the dog
responded. They think she's guilty? Guilty. All four thought their dogs
were guilty but only two actually were. The owners really can't tell
what their dogs have done. Dogs don't have a concept of guilt in the
way we understand it. We need to do another experiment to find out a
little bit more. But this time we are not going to be completely
truthful. Oscar is guilty. He couldn't wait to eat the treat, but
that is not what we are telling his owner. Was really good actually,
I've taken it away. Goodbye! She treat him as if he has been good, so
he act innocent. Because their behaviour changes depending on the
owner we know that their behaviour is about interaction with the owner
not about whether they have eaten or not it in the treat. Bigby, what did
you do? Dogs act guilty in response to their owner's body language
regardless of whether they are guilty or not. If we can demonstrate
to people that dogs don't know whether they have done wrong, that
little bit of understanding helps us teach our dogs what we want them to
do rather than punishing them for the things we don't -- that they
don't know wrong. What do our owners think about the results? Not what I
thought. Guilty looking, thought Id give things away, but it was just
the way I asked. Do you things, boys and girls, it is all down to your
owners, not you! STUDIO: Aw! My dog Barry is not the
brightest button, he is very fashionable, and he just has one...
He just does happy, that's it. When he is naughty, I call him Robert,
but normally he is Bobby. Occasionally I can refer to him as
Roberto sometimes. It sounds wrong but he sleeps in my bed. But he
sleeps with his head on the pillow. It is not wrong! -- that is all
wrong. No, because Bobby and I love it. When I go to work he says, good
luck with that. I will see you later. That was a real insight.
Let's go back to Cold Feet. In a couple of sentences, where did
we leave the characters before? Adam and Tina, it was Will they, won't
they? And it was left that they might. You kissed. I think there was
other kissing on that roof. I actually did more than kissing, in
the toilet. That was my favourite bit! Although you and Pete... Yes. A
lot of romance and hope and possibility, and David as well.
Rumack David left... Didn't you have a fight? -- David left. Yes, fight
with the art manager. Well, this series takes place ten months on
from the last series, and Adam is being interviewed for a new job, and
let's just say he is feeling his age. I was the job interview? Well,
I think you're CV is very impressive. Longer than yours, I
guess. They were all children? Prydie Young, none of them looked
like they had started shaving. We base it on preferences you have
expressed. A personal shopper? -- they were pretty young. Right. Said
Fred. I guess that was before your time.
APPLAUSE It is fair to say all the characters
are having a slight career crisis, especially Robert. Your character,
David? Yes, he was on remand in prison and he got off. At the
beginning of this series he is still in his pinstripe suit but pretty
much selling door-to-door. Very attached to that suit. What about
Jenny and Pete? We are at a bit of a crossroads. There was the Pete
depression storyline. And the shadow of that is on their marriage and
their relationship, it is there. Basically Jen is going hell-bent for
leather. It is unbelievable, but she is nearly 50. No! Basically he wants
to stay on the sofa and she wants to go for gold, and that is problematic
but the whole show is about relationships, and we all have them,
with mothers, children. You said on the roof, you were going for the
kids. What is happening now? Watch tonight, nine o'clock, on TV. You
have either briefed not to give too much away! But there are a lot of
characters like yourself, Leanne. Does that mean that one of you lot
will get bumped off? You did offer to, didn't you? I did and they said
no! But there are loads coming in, so do we need to do a cull? The
guillotine is hanging. They will not kill me off, they have decided not
to. Really? LAUGHTER
If you offered and they said no, you're definitely fine. John did not
jump over the cliff. They pulled him back. They will not kill you. You
are too new. And the already killed one of your ways. So it is between
you two. I will die of old age, I think. No! But if that's the way it
happens, that's the way it happens. It can't be Hermione because the
nation would not allow it. Yes, goodbye, Robert. Sorry! Cull starts
tonight at nine o'clock on ITV and we will have a little trivia quiz
based on Cold Feet later. Girls and boys. Can I ask The One Show a quick
favour? Don't put my kids on TV in 20 years'
time asking them what sort That's not a deal we made with
Coronation Street actor Bill Tarmey. So his children do get to say
what sort of a dad he was to them. Millions of people would recognise
our dad just from the sound of his voice. He was Bill Tarmey, better
known as Jack Duckworth off Coronation Street. Now I come second
to the lodger, do it? No, third. The dog comes before you! He was a bit
of a womaniser, loved his drink and his pigeons. My dad loved a couple
of pints, like Jack. Pigeons, no? Only in pies, son, only in pies. I
am pleased to say he was nothing like Jack. I devoted husband and
father. My dad's birth name was William Paddington. He came from an
Bradford, Manchester. -- Piddington. They got married when they were both
21. My brother came first, Vinnie after. This was the house where me
and Sara spent most of our lives. This -- then me after. He would wake
if he was out doing his gigs. And he could tell us about his night and
ask us about our day at school. He was a very hands-on dad, very
loving, but the tone of his voice and a certain look made us week in
our boots. As a sideline, he did extra work on Coronation Street in
the background. They were that pleased with him, they asked him,
did he want to play a part called Jack Duckworth? He first appeared in
1979 and he continued with that role for 31 years. Jack Duckworth was
married to Vera, and he loved her to pieces. It was in effect his second
wife. In many ways he probably spend more time with Liz than he did with
my own mum, and quite a few of the cast members including Nigel Pivaro
who played Perry, his son. He was always self-conscious of the fact
that he didn't have this acting background, that he didn't have to
worry about that, because I thought he was a very good and powerful
actor. Because he gave a lot of himself to the role in terms of a
lot of truth, a lot of sincerity. Have you got my money? He came from
that background similar to the Jack character. He was a very wise man as
well. He knew characters like Jack Duckworth, but he was not Jack
Duckworth. We moved into this house in 1988 and they lived here until
they both passed away. It was everything to them, a family home.
It was just a great social house. Anyone was welcome at any time. This
was dad 's favourite room in the house.
A lot of the time, because he brought his friends round, he would
actually be stood behind the bar, serving, like Jack used to Dave.
Without charging! Of course! In 2009, I got told I had a brain
tumour and could have 12 months to live. And I think it just crucified
me dad. Well, I know it did. He couldn't physically learn his lines.
He just break down and cry. So he'd come to that decision that he would
leave. And I cried my eyes out like it was my own dad, because I had two
dads. One was Jack Duckworth, and the other one was built Paddington.
It was awful. This was where our dad used to sing every other Wednesday.
He loved this place. It was where he could relax and be himself and think
it's kind of music. He wasn't Jack Duckworth, he was Bill. Bill the
Jazz Singer. I could have been in Las Vegas now, instead of flaming
Coronation Street! He was just a lovely human being, and everybody
adored him, because he was just a genuine person. My dad was my best
friend. We both have the same sense of humour. We could talk about
everything. I miss that more than anything. Thanks so much to Carl and
Saira. He was a lovely bloke. Really, really nice.
Who inspired you most growing up, Jimmy?
Probably always Northern Ireland, George Best, James Ellis, the
Northern Irish actor, Van Morrison, Michael O'Neill, the manager of
Northern Ireland, he inspires all of us in Northern Ireland.
Nevertheless, I would have to say my dad. He was my primary school
headmaster. And my mum. Oh, look! Destined for greatness! I won the
Butlins singing competition. And the prize was, a free week for me, my
mum and that had to take the entire family back! But my mum and dad, my
dad was a great teacher. What about you? On the entertaining side, I've
met Barbara Knox once, which was really is an. She was Rita, wasn't
she is blog I got all overwhelmed, childhood memories! My dad was a
stand-up comics and a singer. Was the? I didn't know that! I remember
him coming down the stairs, he would put his cuff links on and say,
right, I'm going to go and make them laugh. My dad was a musician, many
years sitting and watching my dad play. You said, Robert, that of
course Fay... We love you! He doesn't want to embarrass you!
Meet One Show viewers Thelma and Marie.
They like nothing more than a good night out at the bingo.
Where are you? Hello, there! There they are!
So, when we heard bingo is now being played in nightclubs,
we asked them along to give it a try.
This is the bingo that we know and love. It beamed back in the 60s and
70s, and even now, 800,000 pupils to play internationally at clubs every
week. But tonight, I'm taking two bingo mad ladies to a type of bingo
night that they've never seen before. Are you all set for the
bingo, ladies? Oh, yes, looking forward to it. Well, I'm taking you
to a slightly different kind of bingo night to night. It is called
Bongo's bingo! Do you like prizes? Oh, yes! Well, there's plenty of
them. Do you like dancing? Well, sometimes... Well, give it a try.
Come on, let's go. Johnny Bongo is the creative force behind Bongo's
bingo. It started here in Liverpool is to kill at its heart,
quintessentially it is bingo. -- at its heart. But woven in between is a
bit of a techno rave and a bit of a cheesy pop going on. Bingo in itself
is unbelievable. You know, is a game. We've put our own stamp on it
and put a little bit of energy and creativity into it to sort of maybe
make it appeal to a wider audience. Staying alive is number five...
Apparently you have sold 750 tickets for tonight's show. Why do you think
it is so popular? I think at its core it is just good fun. Times can
be quite tough these days, and people just want to let loose and go
well, that's what Bongo's bingo is all about. Thelma, what do you love
about bingo? I just like going, because there's a lot of people that
we know there and we have a good time. And if we win, it's a bonus.
What is the biggest prize that you have won? ?3500. The top cash prize
is ?500 here. Chicken feed! But there is a variety of other prizes,
including a stuffed unicorn... No! In mobility scooter. That'll do me.
I did take a re-home on the back of it! I'm not sure it's a two seater.
Are we ready to play Bongo's bingo? Are we ready? Let's go! As it
starts, things aren't looking that different from a Saturday night at
Gala bingo, except the age. But as soon as somebody wins a line, bingo
etiquette goes out the window. The next number... For that Henry Hoover
with three interchangeable nozzles... Who would have thought
it?! # I would walk 500 miles...
# And I would walk 500 more... #. That's a big prize! How was it
for you, ladies? Fantastic! Fabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I
could see you, you were focused completely on the numbers. It was
fun, it was completely different to what Mary bingo, but so much more
entertaining. Next time -- to ordinary bingo is. Next time my
daughter goes, I'm going with them! Thelma and Louise... I knew I was
going to do it! Selma and Marie. You must have tried about it? My auntie
said she went there and had a ball. It's the 20th anniversary
of the show this year. So you'd think you would know each
other pretty well by now. Leanne, as you're the new girl,
we'll cut you some slack! How well do you really
know each other? We've split you into two teams -
Boys versus Girls. Do you know this? I think I know
this. I think this is Jimmy Nesbitt... Was this a part-time job
that you had, Jimmy? It wasn't a job! Are used to live with Jerome,
and Jerome used to give me money to reply to his multi-million fan mail!
Brilliant. You can work for John now, he gets much more than any of
us! First point to you guys. Boys... What's fishy about this image taken
from a scene in series five? What's funny about that is in many
ways that really shows the comedy, that's me pouring the Ashes right
into the sea. But, you know, the funny thing is, that's supposed to
be Fay at the end playing Jenny. But actually, at the end of the line-up,
I think it's Janet was field from make up. That is the correct answer!
Because Fay ask for too much money to go all the way for this!
Which action hero character did Robert audition for in 1986?
I don't know this one. 1986... I don't think he was even alive then,
shall be! Was it somebody, maybe Doctor Who? I'm going to go for
James Bond. You are absolutely right!
APPLAUSE Which cast member's
aunt had this 1964 hit? Twinkle! Yes! Cold Feet is three
popular all over the world. In South Africa, Cold Feet is known
as Love, Life and Everything Else. But what was the show
almost called In the UK? Baby adults is just wrong, surely! I
don't know. I'm going to say consenting adults, would you say?
Yes. No, it was young adults. Boys, who we go. -- here we go.
Jimmy, you and Leanne are on-screen partners,
so you're used to looking at each other pretty closely.
Look at this picture - Leanne with her identical
Listen, I haven't got a clue... Is it the blackball the -- the
blackball the green lipstick? Leanne is the black lipstick, I would say
that. That's a trick question, because I can't tell! I think... I
don't know! We're going to have to award you the point!
APPLAUSE The next one is a quickfire round,
fastest finger on the buzzers. She was instrumental
in creating a much-loved character in the series
- which one? Lives, our unique? -- Liz, are you
may? She is indeed! -- are you me. I had a vague memory that her name was
Liz. You can have a chat later! One more, OK. Fingers on buzzers.
He played Matthew. No, you need the buzzer! Sorry! He played Matthew. He
did indeed, well done! That's the end of the quiz. And the scores
are... Three to the girls, but for to the boys!
APPLAUSE -- but four to the boys. So, you win
a The One Show mug. Cold Feet starts tonight on ITV and 9pm.
Thanks to Jimmy, Leanne and Robert, and of course to Fay.
Good luck with the series On Monday, we're celebrating 40 years
Fiona Bruce and experts from the show will be in,
If you've wanted to throw something out for ages,
Alex Jones is joined by guest presenter Fay Ripley and three of her Cold Feet co-stars - James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst and Leanne Best.
Alex Riley is in Liverpool at a Bongo's Bingo event.
