As usual there are people I've never heard of, but the ones I know should be interesting

Still waiting for Ronnie Wood. If it's too difficult to compress in to an hour, why not a one-off longer episode?

Thanks. I should have known Alex Scott, footballer, though my first thought was the former Rangers and Everton forward, RIP.

As for Joe Sugg, I've Googled him and I'm none the wiser.

I’ve heard of Ed Balls and Judi Dench. I have no particular wish to ever hear about the rest.
