Recently on my Sunday morning show I chatted to one of my all-time heroes who was the star of one of the most popular American TV comedy shows of the seventies and eighties, Henry Winkler who played the King of cool ‘The Fonz’ on Happy Days.

Have a listen to the full interview here:

Henry is a really nice guy who has been awarded an honorary OBE by the Queen for his charity work with children who suffer from Dyslexia.  He has a new television show starting on CBBC on the 28th January (available on BBC Player from Jan 21st) called Hank Zipzer which is based on the 18 novels Henry has co-written about his own childhood suffering from Dyslexia.  Henry stars as music teacher Mr Rock, I’ve seen a preview of the show, it’s fast paced and I think very entertaining and amusing for both children and people who were children!

Stacey Solomon came into the Rutland Radio studios to talk about her latest venture – as yet, a TV show without a name.

The idea is that Stacey follows up on new unexplained occurrences in towns around Britain, the most recent being a YouTube video that shows strange lights in a field near Stamford.

The former X Factor star and winner of 'I'm a celebrity' spent the day filming around town before recording an interview with me, surrounded by camera crew, in the Rutland Radio studios for the breakfast show.

‘Stacey was brilliant. She came in, wellies and all straight from the field, and chatted about her new show. After that she recorded another piece to camera outside the Rutland Radio building, which caused quite a stir, before signing autographs and posing for pictures with local office workers’.

Have a listen to the interview and see the photos.
