Who Is On Sunday Brunch This Week?

Who Is On Sunday Brunch This Week?

It's an absolutely packed Sunday Brunch this week, hosted as ever, by Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer.

The top talent includes Johnny Vegas, who is definitely having a moment at the moment. He's got his Carry on Glamping series on Channel 4 on Wednesdays and on Saturday nights his comedy drama with Sian Gibson and an all-star supporting cast, Murder, They Hope, has just started.

Vegas recently explained in an interview here where the idea for Carry On Glamping came from: "I used to have a camper van which I used a lot when I was writing my book years ago. I’m a big sucker for Amazing Spaces and all those shows and I’d always intended to replace the camper. I lost my dad and I think you go through that thing of going ‘if not now, when?’, and then I did what any sensible person would do – I got drunk, went online and bought an old Maltese bus. I didn’t look for a bus in the UK, I didn’t go that far down the searches."

Also appearing is funny man, novelist and former pop star Charlie Higson, who is doing a big online show with nutty boys Madness. It's about putting on a show during Covid and Higson plays the flamboyant theatre manager. It's called The Get Up and is filmed at The London Palladium and streams on Friday May 14. Buy tickets here.

Higson has also recently launched his first ever podcast in collaboration with Scala Radio. Charlie’s Sunday evening series ‘Charlie Higson & Friends’ is also a podcast. For the new series he is joined by different friends from the world of comedy and entertainment including Paul Whitehouse, Bob Mortimer, Arabella Weir and Vic Reeves. Each guest discusses how they discovered classical music.

There's also Strictly Come Dancing hero Oti Mabuse, who danced to victory with Bill Bailey last year and racing supremo Jenson Button.

And actor Anthony Boyle from Derry Girls, who is due to join Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s World War II Series ‘Masters of the Air’ on Apple. Boyle is in hard-hitting drama Danny Boy, co-starring Toby Jones, at 9pm on BBC Two this Wednesday. Boyle says that Watford had to stand in for Iraq in some scenes.

Plus food from @ParveenSpice, drinks from @markdredge, guest chef @SabrinaGhayour and music from @RagNBoneMan, whose latest album reveals a more reflective, acoustic side.

Sunday Brunch, Sunday, May 9, 9.30am, C4.
