Appearing on the chat show tonight is Lenny Henry, the comedian and prime mover behind the BBC's annual charity fundraiser, Comic Relief. His new film, True
Identity, in which he plays an actor who longs to be taken seriously but is only ever given stereotyped 'black parts', goes on general release on Friday. Henry can also be seen on BBC1 soon in Alive and Kicking, a powerful and disturbing black comedy about a drug addict shown as part of the Screen One season.
Also on tonight's show are Simply Red, performing their new single, Something Got Me Started. Their first album for a year, Stars, will be released at the end of this month and, in a deliberate change of direction for the band, will feature no cover versions. All the songs are originals, written by lead singer Mick Hucknall. STEREO
