with the Lotto jackpot a whopping ?46.5 million -
Our guest will get your New Year off to a great start.

But first, with a top prize of half a million pounds,
Julie, start those machines. Our drawmaster tonight is Julie Hamilton

Wilkinson earlier. Start the draw, please.
The Lotto draw is coming up in a just a minute,
but first, let's meet tonight's guest.
in On the Buses and Doctor in the House,
after the Queen Mother took an interest
He's recently returned to the stage,
in the West End - it's the fabulous Russell Grant!
What has the new year got in store? Too much to tell you. Jupiter is in
the sign of the go. The dough is design of health. So I think there
will be breakthroughs in health, which is particularly interesting
for me -- Virgo is the sign of health. I think we will see a lot of
changes there for the good. When my publishers approached me, I didn't
want to bring any more books out. Because you have done how many? 78!
And they approached me and said, would I do an adult colouring book
on the art of astrology and I went, you know, this is good, because what
is good about these new adult colouring books is mindfulness,
concentrating the mind especially in those areas of dementia and
Alzheimer's, and even for the carers. And for people just live in
the moment, rather than living in the past or the future. It is a
great thing to do. I am going to take you back to the past, if I may,
because we have a lovely picture of you as a child. You were here in
Pinewood as a little kid, weren't you? Only with my mum, dad and uncle
John. My uncle won an Oscar for the deer hunter eventually. My dad,
Frank, worked as a scenic designer here on big movies like Cleopatra
with Burton and Taylor. I don't remember meeting them. But my mum
was also a contract secretary, John man she did all the contracts for
the big British stars, Dirk Bogarde and Deborah Carr and all the people
like that. So Pinewood is a second home for the family. Sorry to take
you back to this past as well, but Strictly. You were with Flavia. That
was fantastic. But you had a bad leg, didn't you? Just before I did
that, it turned out that I had done the cartilage in my knee in. So I
had to dance not just this dance, but the next eight or nine dances
with a brace from my hip down to my ankle. It was difficult at times,
but the joy of that one is that it was a Kylie Minogue number, better
the devil you know, and when I got off, my friend Robbie Savage said,
and the look, Kylie has been tweeting you! She sent a message
saying, shimmy, Russ! So showbiz! OK, the big moment of the evening.
Let's play Lotto. Let's release those big-money balls.
There are even more chances for you to become a millionaire. Here is
tonight's Lotto jackpot. It is an estimated ?46.5 million, the biggest
Lotto jackpot ever. We are using Arthur and that of balls eight. More

Congratulations if you were a winner. Say that amount again? ?46.5
million! Your hands are responsible for that. Good luck, everyone. No
matter what sign you are, here goes! Well, if you won, what a New Year's
Eve! Now there is another chance to win in the Millionaire Raffle. In
