Sir Terry Wogan on Friday Night

One of the guests on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross is BBC Radio 2 breakfast presenter Sir Terry Wogan. And the reason for his appearance on TV? It just so happens the second volume of his autobiography, Mustn't Grumble, is published next week.

But during the TV show, Wogan reveals that he wasn't keen to write it: "I didn't really want to do it because I've forgotten nearly all the people I've interviewed. I didn't want to write 'The Wogan Years', that kind of thing."

He also talks about what he said to the Queen the day he was knighted: "It was wonderful? one of my listeners asked me to ask Her Majesty if she would open his village fete. "I asked her? she was a bit nonplussed! You are told she'll shake your hand before you go, [but] what you're not told is that she gives you a push? I think she was disappointed at how slowly I moved away! If I make it to eighty I hope I look half that good."

On winning a Sexiest People on Radio poll: "[A sex symbol?] To myself, certainly! [But] Moyles came second, so I thought the competition couldn't have been all that hot!"

The line-up also includes Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell, and there's music from Scissor Sisters performing their Number One single, I Don't Feel Like Dancing, live in the studio.
