The Jonathan Ross Show

Series 14 - Episode 3



Chameleonic actor Ralph Fiennes has played everything from the embodiment of evil in Schindler’s List and the Harry Potters to an eccentric concierge in The Grand Budapest Hotel. He’s here to talk about directing The White Crow, about Soviet ballet star Rudolf Nureyev (in UK cinemas on Friday).

Stand-up Jack Whitehall will no doubt discuss life on the road and his part in Amazon’s Neil Gaiman fantasy Good Omens. And there’s Countdown’s Rachel Riley, who’s been faced with a Twitter storm in recent weeks. 

Music comes from Melissa Jefferson, better known as US rapper Lizzo.


The host is joined by comedian Jack Whitehall, fresh from hosting this year's Brit awards and about to embark on his biggest ever stand-up tour of the UK and Ireland. Also appearing this week are Countdown's resident mathematician Rachel Riley and award-winning movie star Ralph Fiennes, soon to be making his third appearance alongside Daniel Craig in the forthcoming new James Bond movie. Completing the guest list is American rapper Lizzo, whose third studio album is released next month, and who will also be performing live in the studio.
