Bishop spoke about the programme on The One Show on Thursday night and said getting close to the gorillas was one of the most moving experiences of his life.

Latitude Review: Jason Manford

Comedians are such a sensitive bunch. How do you describe someone as a safe pair of hands without them taking it as a negative criticism? A safe pair of hands is exactly what Jason Manford is, but this is meant as the highest of compliments. After three days when some comedians had died horrible sweaty deaths onstage and others had pushed the boundaries of their craft and divided audiences Manford closed the comedy arena with an assured set that pretty much entertained everyone.

TV Review: Live at the Apollo, Episode 2, BBC1

The second edition of the tenth, yes, tenth, series of Live at the Apollo was hosted by Jason Manford, who is about as safe a pair of hands as you can  get on TV. And I mean that in a good way. Some comedians are good live but don't seem able to make the smoothest of trnaditions to the small screen. Manford makes comedy on TV look like a doddle.
