Today, Ginger Baker is probably responsible for more curled toes and tightened sphincters than anyone else alive. His Q&A with Michael Hann at the Curzon Soho is a masterclass in awkwardness. Questions are shot down. Pauses are left hanging in the air. Baker haughtily surveys the scene like a bilious animatronic skeksis.

Take, for example, this first clip, in which Fallon and Timberlake trade »

The Channel 4 Mash Up
Another night of topsy-turvy TV hosted by Davina McCall and Kevin McCloud, in which the channel's big names present each other's shows. It begins with The Million Pound Chatty Man Drop with Alan Carr and some Loose Women; continues with a comedians' Come Dine With Me and Made in Chelsea hi-jinks; and ends with 8 out of 10 Cats does Deal or No Deal. All topped by return visits to Chatty Man Drop because they know what they've got in Carr. Basically, putting him into any Channel 4 show would improve it.
