Competition based series where amateur cooks progress through by successfully creating dishes that show off their technical skill and understanding of flavour. Guest judges include food critics and Mitchelin star chefs.
Although he interviewed Jimmy Savile several times, following the Savile sexual abuse scandal which erupted in 2012, Parkinson has said that he never liked him, never understood why he was popular and found him impossible to interview. See more »
Michael Parkinson recently moved his chat show from BBC1 to ITV as BBC1 had offered him an earlier evening slot which he refused and ITV had no problem screening it at similar times as on BBC1. It is now usually shown at around 10 to 11:15 pm on Saturdays.
He has interviewed many stars over the years including some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Some of these stars include Michael Caine, Jimmy Tarbuck, John Wayne, Bruce Forsyth, Cilla Black, Julie Walters, Bruce Willis, Anne Widdecombe, Will Smith, Samual L Jackson and Kenneth Williams. One actor I'm surprised he has not interviewed yet is Leonardo DiCaprio, but there is time yet.
I quite enjoy watching Parkinson on Saturdays, even though sometimes he has guests on that I have never heard of. Certainly better than Johnathan Ross's Friday chat show.
Long may Parky be chat show king.
