Hello, good morning. Welcome to the programme. It's 10 o'clock. We are
joined live by National, the treasures of Vic Reeves and Bob
Mortimer. As if that wasn't enough, we also have singer, songwriter,
actor and great British celebrity Will Young. They are here to meet
some have it, do some cooking and take a look at next week's
Good morning. Welcome to Something For The Weekend. Louise is back!
How many months were you off for? knew that I'd get stick today.
People stop me and say it in the street now, those boys give you a
really hard time. I went on my holidays to Majorca. Any good?
Lovely, great for the kids. Shopping? No. I didn't go shopping
once a. You've just come back? was in Norway. Nice? Brilliant.
Lovely place. Nice people, good place. What was the weather like?
It was good. It was warm, cloudy, bit of rain. Everything that I like.
It was good, cloudy, rain! Variation, that's what I like. We
went fishing, we went water-skiing, the whole shebang. I tasted water
from deep fiords. Would you recommend it? Yes. Beautiful place?
Yes, if you like nature. It was a big week in... Television terms,
this week. All of the big shows started. Big Brother, did you see
that? It I did, I watched a bit last night. I'm not the biggest fan,
to be honest. I found it a little bit hard going, to be honest. I
think you have to like someone in it or hate somebody in it. I don't
think I am anywhere in any of them. I watched the contestants... Well,
you don't really call them contestants, the celebrities going
in. I haven't seen it since. looking at these celebrities. Tara
Reid. She is probably the most famous. I went on holiday with her
once. Well... She was in the same place I was staying. Did you talk
to her? Do you know what? Do you know what, what? Well, she was
drinking habit and she gave my daughter's bracelets. That's nice.
My daughter has made the world They were hanging out with her,
they were, like, she's getting broody! Everybody says the same
thing, there are no celebrities, and then everybody gets into it.
What is weird this week is that they're not two wives of people.
It's odd. Wives?! You are famous because he was someone's wife, and
then you get in. X Factor, last night. Did you see that? I didn't
see it. I liked it. The highlight for me was Gary Barlow. I thought
he was brilliant. Everybody thinks he's a bit boring. I thought he was
brilliant. I saw the end, where the little lad ended up having a go at
them all. The producers know that he's not very good and he's been
told he's good, to get up there and get an audition. Everybody knew
that was going to happen. Then he becomes famous. Is it a good thing?
He's in the papers, is it good to be famous for the wrong thing or
not at all? I found it depressing. I think giving him airtime, I
didn't like it. It should be about talent. He has no talent.
people laugh. People love it. Entertainment. I want positives,
not negatives. Embrace the positive. I agree, embrace the positive!
Following his success on stage and screen, Will Young is back doing
what made him famous, a new single and a new sound. Vic Reeves and Bob
Mortimer are here to talk about what makes their comedy brains work
and the latest series of Shooting Stars. If you've got something you
want to ask or say to Vic and Bob,, the royalty, as we all know, if
there is a question you have always thought you'd like to ask them,
then... I think we've got some here, but I don't think they are
particularly good. It would be good to have some more. Will Young, as
well as a singer and actor, he's also into politics. He's been on
Question Time, we will show you a bit of that later. If you got a
question for him, maybe politics, senders and e-mail or get in touch
through Twitter. -- send us an e- mail.
What are we making today? Now that you are back, we can get a proper
food. Starting, beef tataki. Its Japanese marinaded beef fillet. A
very bare Beith, a very rare beef and fresh salad. And then we have
the mirin glaze sea bass. That is Japanese rice wine vinegar. We've
got pak choi, coconut rice, green Thai curry sauce. Nights. Good
shot! Desert is Dulce de Leche up brownies. That is condensed milk
that you boil up and it becomes thick and like caramel. Is that
what you used for banana and toffee pie? A can of condensed milk, you
boil it away and it thickens and you get that delicious toffee. Or
you can buy at already made, probably easier. Is it calorific?
Speaking of which... Corn dogs. They are hot dogs, wrapped in
polenta, flour and eggs and then deep-fried. I'd never tried one of
those, I want to try one. When we were in California, I tried them. I
know they are really bad for you, but there's something nice about
them. Sometimes you got to have something bad for you, you've just
got to. So we are doing that. the recipes can be found on the
website. Here is what else is happening between now and 11:30am.
More victims, more laughs and more Shooting Stars. You can see the
question, you can read it out yourself. Go on! It is Jurassic TB

smell, using their forked tongues to taste the air for odours. And a

Renaud van just break your leg. Simon has just said, I love Komodo
dragons! There you go! Are you going to giggle while I am trying
to do this? Sorry, Miss. Would it be one of your top five animals?
Yes. Donkeys and monkeys, obviously. I just wanted to say... Wait! I've
missed you, what are you making? got some Mediterranean-style drinks.
If your palate leans towards more a bitter, dry, refreshing drink, I've
got some really tantalising ones. It's hard to smile for him today.
It yes, he's an Arsenal fan. They didn't do very well yesterday.
Simon is a Liverpool fan, a bit of tension in the studio. We're going
to cook beef? Beef tataki. Japanese marinade beef. Salad accompaniments,
shallot, cucumber, pickled ginger, beansprouts and watercress. The
marinade is brown sugar, shallots, soy sauce, ginger, garlic. Similar
ingredients for the salad. Lehman, this time, sugar and chilli. --
lemon. If you are someone who only likes the beef cooked right the way
through, if you marinaded in this way, it's probably the best way to
sample it without it being cooked through. What they don't like about
steered beef is that you get the bloody mess of it. Because we
marinade this and then let it go cold, all of the juice sets, so you
get delicious flavour, rather than it being bloody. It's not blood, is
it? No... Well, yes, it is. But I watched it on QI, what is it?
doubting myself now. I can't get involved, I've got no idea.
thought they said it wasn't. I don't know, maybe someone could...
I could be wrong. It's a first, but I could be wrong. When you cook it,
is it blood, or is it just uses? Send us a tweet. Surely, it's got
to be blood? Unless Stephen Fry was We asked hearing this, I need you
to cut that in half down the middle, very finely sliced shallots. We got
to start grating the ginger and I'll crush the garlic. For the
dressing, if he would like to chop that chilli. Everything goes into
that bowl. The soy sauce, the vinegar... And by doing rains?
doesn't really matter. You can cut it in half and do it quite finely.
Whichever you feel is the creative way to do it. Just finely chop.
went fishing in Norway. I'm not really into fishing. Well, I didn't
think I was. But it's really fun if you go out on a boat out to sea.
Have you done that, sea fishing? It's amazing. It's really good fun,
a couple of cans of beer, we caught mackerel and some cod. My kids got
into it, they caught the food, killed it and then they cooked it.
To actually see the whole process, it's quite good. What else did you
eat that was good? We caught crabs, we ate them as well. I ate brown
cheese. It tastes a bit like Dulce de Leche. It's got a really sweet
flavour. Something I love is called It's a traditional meal that they
have won Thursday's. It's like when we have fish and chips on Friday.
It's a dumpling. They cook it with smoked pork and stuff. It's quite
stodgy, but it's delicious. Should we make it? We should, it's
delicious and I liked it a lot. Anything like dumplings is nice.
It's quite comforting food. Norway was do particularly rich country
until it found its oil. I think it was... I don't know, what poorer
people used to meet tough on themselves up -- to -- used to eat
to fill themselves up. There's incredible fish over there, we ate
in a restaurant and the guy that owned it said he had a real treat.
He brought out boiled cauliflower. They struggle to grow vegetables.
He thought it was such a treat. We are going, you know... Up we had
Just to recap, we've got lime, shallots, lime, ginger, a really
nice marinade. Is that fine enough? That's perfect. The lemon zest in
there, that is the dressing For Allah salads. These things are
separate. Pour the marinade into there. This is a little bit strange.
We really want to work all of these flavours into this. Our lovely
piece of beef goes into there. We zip up the bank... Well, we don't
Then we work that marinade into the beef. Kobe beef, which they massage
the cow was, we are kind of doing Do you just think, what can we get
Louise and Tim to do? Massage some There is a genuine reason for doing
that. You want to work as much of the flavour into the fibres of the
meat. Then we let it go completely cold. When it is cold, put it in
the fridge and trill it down. If he can do this a day in advance, it
really makes for some delicious flavour. A minimum of two hours, I
would say, for it to marinade. I'm just going to slice up bits and
bobs for the salad. A minimum of two hours? So you get some flavour
in there. Ideally, overnight. If you fancy this, have at 40 tomorrow,
rather than today. For the salad, a I led the way the Spanish beat. It
is all about sharing. -- eat. You pick at what is in the middle of
the table. I love it. You are going to look back at yourself in 10

you start to cook like that and he pinched the beat, you will find it

you can. If ever you're going to eat meat, today is the day. Did I
put enough lemon in there? I always get and it will do. It is probably
enough. We have ginger, shallots, bean sprouts. That looks lovely.
The presentation is key when you are having a dinner party.
serve this on a board so everyone can dig into it rather than having
little bits for everybody. Stick it on. Your days of growing up in
Liverpool. That does look fab. this of marinated shallot sits on
there. It is one of the nicest things we had cooked on the show.
That is heaven. It will last a good while. What a remaking for the main
course? Mirin Glazed Sea Bass. That is up there with the Komodo dragon.
All of the recipes are on the website. This is amazing. What game
show has barely any rules, celebrities who line up to be
outgunned and hosts who seemed to enjoy themselves more than they
really should? The answer is Shooting Stars. Your question is
going to be delivered to you by Archie Andrews, a new friend to the
show. He is a lovely friend of ours. That is it, Archie. On the other
side is a question for you to read out. You can read it out yourself.
I am not reading that. You can read it out yourself. Is it true or
false, so there is black? It is Bowles. -- false. You can watch
that episode on Monday on BBC Two. The main men are here with us now.
Hello. How are you? Very well indeed. How is the show going?
has been really well received. We must have learned something
different. Eight series over how many years? We reckon 16 years.

do another series, do you think, we need to do something different.

George Doors was such a big person and Angelos is a funny guy. He
seems to have developed a life of his own on the show. It is quite
nice because you do incorporate the music and the dancing girls. It
makes something for everyone. There are some things in there which are
interesting and entertaining. other words, if you do not like us!
A lot of shows are gag after gag. Shooting Stars is full on
entertainment. It is everything. is jam-packed with than and
laughter. If anybody doesn't know what we are talking about with
A quick change! We wrote that for us to do. We were going to do that
and then we are offered it to Angelos to do. He has the best body.
Is there any format to the show when you sit and write it? Do you
think, we need a song and...? Absolutely. We work on different
sections. Music has always been a big part of your act. Not many
comedians do that. You do the singing and dancing and the comedy.
We are old fashioned like that. We do not explain what is going on to
the public. We have a song and dance in an old-fashioned way.
do not say, do you remember when you were growing up? John Clements
has said, who has been your biggest comedy inspiration? You have
created a whole new type. I did not watch television. I liked spike
Milligan. He was not allowed on the television much towards the end of
his career. When he was, it was always a treat. Tommy Cooper as
well. Lock and Hardy. You have done a load of stuff on the internet.
What are they called? Afternoon delights. You should see them
online. They are very good. It is a weird thing that people are having
to move on to the internet. Everything you did was watched...
It was two channels. Is that the way we are going? I think
everything is going on the internet. You have a computer, don't you, at
home? Do you enjoy it? The only problem is it is too high. Millions
have watched it so that probably is the future. Less and less people
are watching it on the television. It must be frustrating when you do
not get a television slot and you think, I'll stick it on the
internet. Yes, anyone can do it. We did 21. That was won a day Padang a
month. So many people were tuning They are all made up as we go along.
People think we are making Shooting Stars up. One big difference is
that we learn the scripts. Everything we say is scripted. We
learn it. There is not that the Lions on the autocue. -- reliance.
Oliver says, would you ever do another sitcom? We are going to
bring back On The Buses. Who do you have on this series of Shooting
Stars? We had Jimmy Anderson on tomorrow. With a bit of luck he
will be a big star. You get good names. People want to come on and
be part of it, don't they? John Humphrys from Mastermind is very
good. Has anyone not got it? Sat there and thought, I am not getting
less. Occasionally you have that. We do not really allow people to
say much. It is the highlight of my career being on the show. And mine.

know what I saw?! I saw the most amazing thing in Norway. You know
what it was? A cruise ship. I've never seen one before. You've never
seen a cruise ship? They are massive. It's like a town!
Unbelievable. Incredible. We oil the fish, rather than the pan.
We've left it out at room temperature. I never liked the idea
of going out on a cruise. desperate to look inside one. It's
so big. Apparently Gara swimming pools and everything. The idea of
being confined in one space, while you kind of... With 10,000 people
you don't know? Yeah, I struggle enough being at home with my family,
never mind with 10,000 people you don't know. Into the pan, skin-side
down. When I was on shooting Stars, they said to me, true or false, no
man has ever enjoyed a family holiday. True or false? False!
Whereof I going? So skin-side down. Because it at room temperature, it
doesn't arch its back. If it goes in cold, it will. This way, we cook
it evenly. Back over two of the board, coconut rice, really simple
to do. What we are going to do... It seems weird when we do that.
When I am here, you are there. It just felt odd for a moment. Proves
ships. I'd never seen them before. But unless you live in
Southampton... Do they come into Liverpool docks? They do, there's a
big political debate. Liverpool want to get more of that lucrative
market. They are enormous, absolutely massive. I just can't
imagine them being good fun to go on. How much food must they put in
those things? Loads. People at home ongoing, what? He's never seen a
cruise ship? And you mocked me for the Komodo dragon. Here is a man
who sent -- spent his holiday looking at cruise ships. I don't
want to go on one... Well, I just want to look inside it. You should
go down to the train stations and look at the things that can in
there as well. Trains? Yeah, they are brilliant. When I grow up, it
was so boring that we used to go and watch the trains, to see if
bit like The Railway Children? We stared at around. To recap, rice,
coconut milk, lemon grass. We are now going to turn it over. You are
cooling in the pan, because it was too hot? We would burn the fish,
simple as that. People tend to go from the side. They will tear the
skin and it doesn't look attractive. What we want to do is that we want
to go from this end and then flip it over. That was easy! That is
because you are great at cooking, Tim. Again, because it's cooked
evenly, because it came to room temperature. The green Thai curry
paste. It's just a simple accompaniment. I'm going to rattle
through this, ideally, cook it slowly for four or five minutes so
it becomes quite fragrant. Then add the coconut milk. Because we are,
as ever, rapidly running out of time, we're going to bring that to
the boil so you get delicious flavours. We've got the coconut
rice, covering up to the boil. Lovely, fragrant rice. Two Things
To finish off the fish. We're going to baste it. We're going to put a
bit of butter on the side. I always like it when we start running out
of time, you are smirking because you can see me... I was daydreaming
about cruise ships again. Where would you go? I don't want to go on
one. I just want to go into one and have a look around. How many people
go on them? I don't know, thousands. It's terrifying, it's like a
skyscraper. Bigger, just huge. I'd never seen anything like it. So, if
you turn that off... It's like the Death Star. We drain off the excess
but a. When you were younger and people used to say, I'd love to go
on a cruise, that is what they are and I never got my head around it.
We might be missing out. Maybe when we come into retirement, will do
that. Someone told me you get your own apartment, with a garden.
think those are the top end. What we would be able to afford is the
middle ones. You had just smell the container. We got pak choi which we
have poached with some stock and some butter. So, two bits of pak
choi. One of my favourite vegetables. It would be one of my
top five. Always a really delicious flavour. Mine are peas. You can't
beat them, a staple of your store cupboard. Turn it out for me. You
don't have to do it with a fancy Cup, but it looks nice. Beautifully
done. We have a little bit of an hour Thai curry sauce. It sits in
there. That will bring all of this together. Finally, what we do with
the mirin, it is Japanese rice wine vinegar. It's nice and sour, but
with a lead of sweetness. We pressure that over the fish.
nothing has happened to that? Nothing at all, straight out of the
bottle. Sit back on there. I'm going to garnish with coriander
leaves. I know you will not eat them, but it looks pretty. We also
have lime. That looks nice. Thank you. Please, join in. I was
thinking, if you had a pair of clip-on braces and some cherry red

quite good. I'd like it, some big place GAR music. What are we

Secrets Of the Dragon on Wednesday. Our second guest shot to fame in

# I'm tired of waiting. # And it feels like Jealousy.
# And I bowed out on my knees. Welcome to Something For The
Weekend. We'll get on to your new video in a minute. Oh, that's
boring! We can talk about ballet. This morning, when you met, a UK
men and said, I love you. Stay! STAY! I was singing it in the
shower, when I was exfoliating. Which one is that? Eternal? It's
the first single, actually. Many, many years ago. I actually lusted
after you at school. I had a post and everything. I've gone red.
poster. And then you were discussing ballet? We realised we
both have it in common. I still do ballet. You did it for... 18 years.
Could you get together and do ballet? I think we should practise
it after. That would be good for me to watch. We'll do it while we are
cooking. I'll stretch out. We will I bet you're good. Can we get Simon
to do some as well? Now you're single and your video. There is an
interesting theme. You work on a trapeze. You are a frustrated
Olympian. I actually am. When people say, I could have played for
West Ham if I kept up the training, I still think in my head I could be
a 400 metre Olympian. I still think that in my head. I dream I play for
Chelsea. I dreamed that the manager phones me up and says, can you do
it this week? Will Young will be doing 400 metres. Louise Redknapp
will be doing ballet. We could make it work. You actually ran the
marathon, didn't you? I was a bit disappointed this year. I did it in
four hours and two minutes. Will you do it again? I want to do 3.5
hours. Can you do it? I actually made a documentary on it. I went to
Loughborough and had an assessment. That was just before I started
smoking. They said, we think you can do it in 3.15. It is hard to
keep going for all that time. I did it for Catch-22, a charity that
helps young people and is very prevalent. I will do it again.
is your album called? Echoes. People are saying it is like dance
music. You don't like to call it that. It is not a dance album. What
I should have done is picked out some of the nice things that people
might say about it in reviews. It has got a kind of electro rhythm to
it. Did that happen when you went back into the studio? Actually, it
started when people were remixing my songs. Because I am known as
mid-tempo and ballads, I was hearing the remixing and thinking,
this kind of works. This desire to do this kind of record came about.
I thought, if I do not do it now, I will never do it. I am beyond happy
with the result. To come back with something different... I do not
read reviews. That stays in your mind. The change of direction is
always good after you have had a greatest-hits out because it is
always good to have something new. You were the winner of Pop Idol.
How come you have a career and so many others do not? I think it is a
mixture of tenacity and stubbornness. I started Pop Idol
because I wanted to be a pop star and a wanted to be a songwriter. I
had such a passion for it. I refuse to give up. I just refuse.

disagree. If they had opened the schools, people would complain it
were a health and safety thing. You are being antiquated. I think there
is a culture of timidity that is being created. They do not know
which way to turn. Do I think it is the right decision? I do not think
it to something for the public arena so, I do not think it is the
right decision. Very stroppy. You're competing with Stephen Fry
on the vocabulary brand. It is good that you were speaking your mind.
want to do it again. I really like making comments. Coming in as
someone who is in the entertainment business, you hold an interesting
position on that show. You do not have to toe the line. You have lots
of political opinions but the rest of the panel is armed with facts
and figures. Did you do research? Yes, I did. I listened to the Today
programme for about a month and read the papers. You kind of get an
idea of what topics are going on that week. You know there are four
or five topics. Which you have liked to have been on it during the
rioting period? I actually went. Because of the work I feel very
strongly about it. I feel young people might be tarred with the
same brush. The one silver lining is that young people learn very
quickly. They just need to have a bit of the lead shown at them and
be directed in the right way. They have been let down recently by
government and society. It is a real mess. They are heroic. So many
young people I have met, in the face of adversity who are doing
incredible things in their lives. I feel passionately about to ring as
much as I can. We have run out of time. What is Catch-22? We catch
young people at a moment in their lives and send them on to better
things. That is it from Will for the time being. He still has to do
ballet with the least Redknapp later. -- Louise Redknapp. Ella is

heroes to the Arctic. Unless you really hate the cold, this place is
