show. Essentially, run out of excuses. Cliff keeps so active.


Loves skiing. You do wonder, is it hard to play the guitar and


the same time? I guess it is. Of course, Cliff had a huge hit


the film Summer Holiday where he spent all summer on a bus with sexy


young girls. I tell you, I hear they are making a sequel, Cliff is in the


lead and they have the sexy young girls back. Yeah. At least this


they won't have to pay for the bus fares. How exciting to have Lord

there. Exciting for you on Friday night. I have not been out on a


Friday night for years. I reached the point if I queue to get up in a


nightclub and the bouncer says you can't come in, I say "

My feet are killing me. And Kelly, SCREAMING Unk thank you. We are very


excited, you will be singing the single. Absolutely. Down For


Whatever later. Yes. I am so excited. Dancers and all sorts,

long as you know how to shake your booty. I can do that. Is that any


good. It is good. Mickey, do you watch the X Factor? Sometimes I do.


And sometimes you don't. You don't have to worry about it. I don't. I


looked once, there was a bloke like that with his hair just crying. And


I thought no, I r that's not the show for me. You are all right,


Mickey, he is gone. He said I have had sex with 10,000 women. Has


anybody got any Charlie. It is not the show for me, Cliff. Listen,


because people will be - won't be able to relax until I ask you a


couple of questions. Got it. Frankie, gone. He is gone. And


that... APPLAUSE. Oh! I do sorry, he is only 18. He is a


young man. I feel bad. One of your acts is coming back. You don't care.


How will I look at gAir Barlow this? I am excited about Amelia


coming back. She is amazing. She is everybody's favourite. She is the


one you let go. Just to my defence, that was a hard one. That really


was. For the judges to make a decision, you know... Is there


rift there? Was that all made up? I love Tulisa. We did have a little


bit of a tiff because she you know, against one of my girls.


Misha B, the bully. BOOING. Militia is


Misha B, the bully. BOOING. Militia is not a bully. Your old friend


Louis told you that. Misha B is from a bully, she a sweetheart. When


I watch X Factor, which I do sometimes, I think it is one of


best things that happened. There people that come out of that show


that you could two weeks before be shopping in a supermarket with. It


gives people a opportunity. It does. Two weeks


later most of them are again. In Asda. Sir Mark Richardson,


cover your ears to spare your blushes. I want to remind people how


successful this man is. He has sold, listen to this, Kelly, 250 million


albums. Plus. Over! Over 250 million. They are still selling.


Wow! Can I borrow a pound? I can give you a few records. All right.


This is another good one, if you add up every week that Cliff has


in the charts, he has been in the charts solidly for 20 years. Wow!


That is amazing. Wow! It goes without saying highest selling


artist in the UK of all time. Mark Richardson, ladies and


gentlemen. APPLAUSE. It is amazing. You must - I mean, obviously, you


are getting on with it, you brought out a new album, been on tour. Yes,


all right. She is a bit slow. Who is that, Sir Mark Richardson? I love


him. There must be moments as you sit in bed with sheets with a high


thread count, I imagine. You ponder your success and your long Jit. I


do. What answer do you come up with. I find it hard to believe because


when the Shadows and I got kicked off, we were one-hit wonders, here


today, gone tomorrow. The about


about selling the records is you did sell millions of bits of plastic.


And nowadays people download. You can be number within with 35,000


sells, we sold 80,000 a day. I don't know - I got in early. He could say


these nice things about me. Most of the people I hear singing, even the


losers sound unbelievably great. The other thing is, because your


mainstream and you have been in our homes for 53 years, when you started


out, you were shocking. People were shocked by you. They said I was. You


know the media. The media were desperate to have somebody that


could compete with Elvis. I used to go like this. They thought I was the


big sex symbol, one journal it said that the TV show Oh Boy. I Did,


that the TV show Oh Boy. I that the TV show Oh Boy. This crude


exhibitionist. Please, me. You are beautiful. Look at you. The enemy


said "is this new boy singer too sexy for Britain". I didn't say


wasn't sexy. No. You look there. Girls loved you so much, but


the boyfriend didn't like you, led to problems. The Drifters before


the Shadows. I played in London. they had one of these resolving


stages. We were going to play Elvis's Baby I Don't Care. Then all


these cheese rolls came flying up. I never sang a note. The thing


Somebody says I threw that cheese Somebody says I threw that cheese


roll. Remember that one. We look at that picture. Beautiful back then.


Isn't there a moment, Cliff, when you let yourself go, you are a


success, you are eating? The time I went to the States, it was so


early. We could not believe early. We could not believe we were


on the show the Biggest show of Stars and it was the people that we


loved. I went over there and six weeks, I put on a stone. The


food you have in the States, we were arriving at towns at 4am, something


open. We would have cornflakes with half and half. Half and half.


and half. Very good. I worked in the restaurant and had to do the coffee,


do you want half and half and all. His wife had it. Do you want half


and half aall. He went, "I don't know what you are saying, man". I


say half and half because I am biling wam.


Do you what started my first diet Do you what started my first diet


Do you what started my first diet was watching Coronation Street, one


was watching Coronation Street, one was watching Coronation Street, one


Do you what of the characters says "


of the characters says "I love that chubby Cliff Richard"


chubby Cliff Richard". That is a smack in the face. A smack in the


stomach. I went to the diet and have been on diets ever since. Kelly, you


look amazing. Thank you. APPLAUSE. You walked out and it is like wow.


Thank you. Do you do exercise. I do like to exercise. How many situps do


you do a day? Honestly? I do like to do 200 situps at night. Yes. At


night. 200? Not all through the night. No. It would take me


night to do 200. 6am, nearly finished. About 200 a night.


would be surprised how simple and things like that make you


better. I like the fact that exercise makes me feel good. It is


not about size. People say she went for a walk and that's what she looks


like. Yeah. A long walk. A brisk walk. Power walking. Mickey, have


you considered the gym? Have you considered... I have considered it.


You shouldn't laugh that hard. You look good. I am not one of those men


that - men don't, you know, if you are an egg on legs, you might start


panicking. Even then, look at my calves, babe, they are beautiful. I


did go to a gym a couple of years ago. I laid down on the mat to do


situps. I woke up two hours later. I felt fantastic. APPLAUSE. Cliff, of


course the highlight of any Cliff Richard fan every year is the annual


release of the Cliff Richard calendar. SCREAMING. I have to


honest. I have only been collecting them since 1982. Wow! Prior to that,


my mother wouldn't let me buy them. They only last a year, they are a


waste of money. What is amazing about these, you are timeless. The


only way to gauge what year they are is from the fashions or how it is


shot. Good game, Mickey and Kelly. Take this one, a classic. It is very


hard to guess. I will give you multiple choice, I don't know


you did to mini. She looks surprised.


You probably know the answer. You probably know the answer.


don't. Is this 1984, 1996 or 2001? I am going to go with - oh. Do that


again. Oh! I am going to go for 96. 96. I will go for 84. All the Cliff


fans got it wrong. This is December 1996. Yes. This next one, is this


older than 96 or newer than 96. I will say older. Older,. February


2000. Now, how long had you had that jacket? You could not have bought


that jacket in February 2000. don't remember the jacket. Really?


You had it a while. Oh, no. Wait. I bought this at an auction. They


it was yours. Broad shoulders, don't think so. You hang on to


clothes, you keep clothes. I find it hard to throw them away. I am trying


hard. That is why this game is hard. Is this older or newer than


this one? I think that one is older. You are wrong. It is October 2004.


It is newer than this one. Was that your tour of duty of Afghanistan?


Stylish. This one is easy. Older or Stylish. This one is easy. Older or


newer. February 1994. And finally, look at this hunk of man. SCREAMING


What year was this? I don't know. Because I have been sucking at this


game. I wondered what you were going to say there. That is such a


different game you shall talking about. I will tell you, that is


October 2011, ladies and gentlemen. Last month. That is amazing. That's


a great shot. You look good. Thank you. You are welcome. When we


about gym and stuff, there are certain people that will never look


like Arnold Schwarzenegger. I of those. When I saw that, I thought


maybe doing the gym helps because it gets rid of a little something. Do


you only eat one meal a day. That's not right. I did for a while. I


didn't like that very much. The regime I am on now lets me have


three good meals a day, I have to eat the right stuff. Not nan doughs.


Kelly, NANDOS and a brisk walk. Kelly, NANDOS and a brisk walk.


200 steps. Down to business. You still are working and getting out


there. New album, Soulicious. A lot of you went to the tour, I am sure.


Yes. Very good. This album, it went in at Number 10 in the charts. Is


fair to say you don't get that much radio air play with your stuff?


Things have changed greatly. understand what the policies are


more. I fought a lot of battles trying to make sure we had our music


played to the public. The thing I can't win. I make projects. This is


a project. I got a chance to sing with the Temptations, the


Styleistics, Freda Payne. All these people joined me. In a way, you have


to bypass radio. It is a shame. To me, radio and rock 'n' roll are hand


in glove. If something is a hit, like the Millennium Prayer, your


public and your fans love your music. They buy your music. What is


the disparity between them and musical executives? I don't know.


was the biggest selling British single of that year, but we couldn't


get the air play. It is unfair, it borders on ageism, now that I am


50... I love her. I am like OK. It is one of those things. We have


learn to live with us, including X Factor people. There come a point


when you won the competition, everybody is hot for you, you make


records. When you are trying to going that you need that kind of


help. All right. The DVD I hope make up for everything. The DVD,


yes. I have it here. Yeah, yeah. is all in hand. I appear to be on


idiot, I know what I am dock. Here is a taste of you on tour


# But she just wasn't it # But she just wasn't it


# For me the girl was all # The girl in the window...


That is in shops from Monday, 14 November.


November. November.


That is in Very good. I tell you what, I am a


little overknighthoods now, I will see you Sir and raise you a Lord.


Please welcome Lord Sugar. APPLAUSE Hello, sir. How nice to see you. Oh!


APPLAUSE. SCREAMING. How are you, Sir? How are you, Lords Sugar? I


mean, I am a bit frightened, Graham, the last time I came on you accused


me of aupsetting one of your guests. I saw you with Alex on the One Show,


who is the worst guest, that Lord Sugar. You said I upset a


somebody or other. She was talking about the chemistry on the sofa. And


I said: Sometimes it doesn't work. Pot, kettle. Two weeks ago, we had


Nancy Dallaglio and you go, Nancy, what do you do? Then she went off


and said, Sven, pasta, you said no, no, what do you actually do? Pot,


kettle. Don't you think? You are not going to upset any gets. Are


fan of Sir Cliff. What a legend to be sitting next to. Great guy. Have


you been to the concerts. The wife has and threatened not to let me in


the house unless I bring back a signed thing from Cliff and he has


given me one. I am OK. You get home and hear Devil Woman from the


lounge? Yeah. She loves him. Now, your book, your new book, the Way I


See It, is it a Jeremy Clarksonesque collection of rants? Who is


Clarkson? Who is he? Small show BBC Two. It is letting off steam,


bit of a rant here and there. It is also advice because the


Cliff, you take your appearance very seriously. You do, though. You


exercise like mad. Not like mad. Cliff, you play tennis, right. I do.


I don't know about you. The knees are having trouble. I am fine.


Pounding on the court. The back. You play doubles, though? No. Singles.


You used to put on a great tennis tournament once a year. I did. Never


invited me. It is happening again. I will stand right here. So I


pound on the courts any more. I gone into cycling. I ride bikes.


Also, you have a clever diet plan which you go into. Yeah. Talk us


through it. It is called - yeah. No, it is a good idea. It is a


idea. It happened in America. I was in America in that fla. Near Miami.


And a guy gave me collapse and they had the little fork with collapse,


pick them out. I thought I would embark upon eating main course using


this little fork. My wife looked at me like mad. What are you doing? I


am working on something here. I am eating with this little fork. And it


occurred to me that it took me ages to get halfway through the plate of


food, by which time the brain was telling me you are full up. It is a


little fork diet. I take a little fork around with me. You try it.


you are finding it difficult to follow the little fork diet, Lord


Sugar provides the difference between a large and small fork. No


stone let unturned. The attention to detail, I think it is called. Do you


have any knife as well? Americans, as you will know, don't use a


as well. They use the fork to mess around. That is it. Some of them


a shovel. And bucket. Yeah. In the book, there is advice in there,


there is life advice. Also things that annoy you. Yeah. As you see,


is a thick book. Let's go some of the things. There is a


chapter on mere low which is about you you are not a fan of pretentious


restaurants. Well, I am awfully sorry. I don't want to be accused of


upsetting one of your guests. Please don't. I have only frequented


America for the past 40 years in the state of Florida. That may


tell all. OK. It is not representative of the whole country.


It isn't. I pleaded fifth there. In that state, I have


across lots of restaurants, Italian restaurants, where there isn't an


Italian waiter, the guy is not from Italy, never been near Italy, they


make up all these names for Italian food that the Italians never heard


of. Never heard of it. Then they purport to know about wine. And they


come out offering me all sorts all that. I don't know anything. It


annoys me. It can go the other way. I was in an Italian and ordered the


bruschetta. The bloke says said and I said it is 8.


I said it is 8.50 for tomato and toast. Waiter beware. I love what


you do, if you don't like a meal. Well, I actually write the message


on the plate using the food. For example, it was mash potato left


over. You can move it armed with a knife and write little messages. It


can't be a long word. Crap isn't long. The waiter comes back. He


looks at it like that. Mash potato is good to do that with. If you get


string beans, they short-circuit it, you can make a long A and L with


that rather having to skull p the potato. You know what is perfect for


that, alphabet spaghetti. Some of the meals would be better off


that. You love the wine, Sir Cliff Richard. I enjoy it. You make


own. I don't make it. I have a good wine maker that comes from


Australia, plus the guy that lives in Portugal. This is too much. I


have a Sir, Lord, you are making your own own wine. I am piss poor.


Do you feel better? You stick me, sister. That's great. Not that


bad at the moment. Very good year. You did well. What do you actually


do? I am a waiter. I am here to have a go at him. It wasn't that bad,


that mash, Alan. Then, it is like Christmas, ladies and gentlemen.


Micky Flanagan has a DVD out. APPLAUSE. Easy to wrap. This is a


tour you just finished. The Out Out tour. I can't say it. Out Out. You


are like a pop star. You have hit bits that people love. I do. Are you


familiar with the Out Out stuff? If anyone isn't, this is a taste of it,


explain. In the UK, we have different levels of being out,


haven't we? You can go out, end up out, and then you can end up out,


out. Everybody knows what they are. You will find yourself saying to


people: I can't come out. I didn't even come out. I only popped out.


They will go but you will come out. I will come out but I am not coming


Talking about Out Out, that is out Talking about Out Out, that is out


on the 14 November. See you in charts. Y. It is hard to choose,


isn't it, Kelly, in the DVD What shall I buy. Kelly won't


understand a word of it. I have been to America. You don't understand


Cockneys. Can I tell you a story of a faux pas. In America, they all air


ass, where I come from, we call it a house. I took a girl out, on the way


home, I stopped her and said when we get out what are the chances of me


coming in your (ass) house? APPLAUSE It was a genuine mistake. I know she


said: Oh, yeah, you can come. I had to reassure her. I won't try to


you, you know. That is the short of mistake you can make over there.


They cannot understand a words. The Americans are so nice. You are


speaking to them and they say: I am sorry? Vent Julily they go like


this. You know they don't understand a words. OK, fine, yeah, I will see,


take care. Kelly, you will be singing for us. Absolutely. APPLAUSE


Thank you. Lord Sugar, you tweet about X Factor all the time. Yeah.


Yeah. You do, though. What happens is the wife likes to watch it. I


drive the Sky plus. You might not understand what that means, being


American. I understand what you are saying, OK. I drive the Sky Plus.


Artist comes on, sing, sing. Push, push forward. Panel, panel, adverts.


Kissing, everybody hugging, sod off. Go through that. And I loved you,


Simon, want to be here all my life. Through all that stuff. We manage to


get an hour and a half programme down to 25 minutes. Yeah. I read


somewhere, Cliff, that you said you entered, you wouldn't get


through the first audition. I don't think so. Not the way things are. If


we were starting at the same time, I might have stood a chance. The kids


that sing, they have had 60 years of influence. They don't know


are influenced by. It before they were born. It is all


there. They come out and sing fantastically. When we started off,


there had only been... Have you been watching this week? I think you


should enter. The over25 category is piss poor. We have kitty. Don't. She


makes you go oh, not yeah! I think would get further in X Factor than


on the Apprentice. Because I don't do Mondays. You know why? Because


you can't sing. How would you feel about somebody saying: I don't do


Mondays. I have 3,000 of them already. They wake up on


Tuesday. Are you going to come next year? We will see. I don't


know. Yes. Why wouldn't you. That is so nice. Britain has embraced you.


The new album, it seems to me, because it has a lot of dance stuff


on it, which is more European, more British, do you think your career is


more here now? No. I just came off of a number one for seven weeks in


America. I am happy. I can go both. It is a blessing. Not only that, to


be so far away from home, you still feel like you are at home,


appreciate the love I am getting here. Thank you. APPLAUSE. We are


about to love you musically. Thank you. You are giving us Down For


Whatever. Down For Whatever. It is a racy title. You said with. I am down


with whatever you said. You For Whatever. It is released on 21


November. If you would like to and get ready. There she goes.


APPLAUSE. Nandos and a brisk walk everybody. Stories in the red chair

be watching this. I am not sure made a clever decision. All right,


Michelle from Galloway, off you go. Basically, I moved here in the last


three weeks. I was visit anything March of this year. I bought


pair of very, very cheap high shoes, went over on my ankle walking to a


theatre. I couldn't walk, the theatre was five seconds away, I had


to get a taxi and basically we were going to Dirty Dancing. I had to be


carted in a wheelchair to show. We paid �100 each for the


tickets. The king of nice. I so wanted to be a baddie. Well done,
