Ant and Dec chat about their new gameshow Limitless Win.

Asked if it is exciting or frightening to be doing their first game show in 10 years they say in unison: “It’s a bit of both.”

Dec then adds: “It is exciting but then you realise you are putting something new out there to be criticised and there so many more ways for people to criticise these days than there were 10 years ago!”

Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais is on the show to talk about the third season of After Life.

Talking about the success of his comedy-drama her says: “It is overwhelming. I never thought it would be this big and best part has been the emotional response.”

Asked why there is a third series when he normally only ever does two, he says: “It felt right, there was more scope, and bigger story.

"People always think I am crazy to stop at two but there are always new and exciting things to do.”

Elvis Costello

Tonight's music comes from legendary singer Elvis Costello.

Talking about his younger self and performing on Top of the Pops, he says, tonight: “When we were first on it was so exciting and then we got a little blasé and it became all about getting into the BBC bar and drinking.

"There were a few occasions when we were totally hammered.

"It became a game and eventually we were told off and not invited back!”
