LOOK! Bear Grylls, Kylie Minogue, Russell Howard eat insects I’m A Celebrity style on Jonathan Ross Show!
Who’d have thought they’d see Kylie Minogue eat maggots!? Adventurer Bear Grylls challenges fellow guests Kylie, Russell Howard and Matt Bellamy from Muse to a game of ‘Bear’s Bullseye’. The guests use a bow and arrow to shoot a spinning target, containing faces of the players, and the person who is shot is forced to eat a delicacy found under a lid – unfortunately for them, there are crickets, locusts and maggots. Jonathan squeals as he puts a locust into his mouth!
Also on tonight’s show:
Australian superstar Kylie talks about feeling settled with her model boyfriend Andres Velencoso, she reveals the highlights of her 25-year career and discusses her famous bum!
Kylie has famously had a number of relationships, but never seems to have found The One. She has been dating Spanish Model Andres Velencoso for four years. “Sound the alarm, four years – I think it’s a record,” Kylie jokes. Jonathan comments on Andres’ good looks. “He doesn’t role out of bed looking like that,” laughs Kylie.
Jonathan asks Kylie if she is going to settle down. “I’m pretty settled,” she says. “I don’t know how you get more settled,” continues Kylie sounding content and happy.
Kylie on being grumpy…
Kylie is known for being ‘smiley Kylie’ but she admits she can get grumpy at times. “Even if you are the sweetest person on earth, yeah, you get grumpy,” says Kylie. But what makes Miss Minogue grumpy? “Running late,” she says. Luckily for Kylie, her boyfriend knows just how to deal with her moods. “Firstly he’ll keep his distance, wise move, or he’ll just make me laugh about something. He’s got a really good sense of humour,” explains Kylie.
Kylie on her famous bum…
“Can we talk about your backside?” asks Jonathan. “Let me just ask it, because it has it’s own PR team these days,” jokes Kylie.
As Jonathan asks Kylie how her bum has become so iconic, she laughs with bemusement. “I don’t know how it happened. Okay, so yes, I put them in gold hot pants, but really I don’t know…” says Kylie.
Kylie has recently shot an advert, it’s a satirical look at advertising, and she wears a dress that’s very low cut at the back. Jonathan says she looks better than ever but Kylie modestly says, “It’s all smoke and mirrors.”
Kylie on highlights of her 25-year career (and getting Prince Charles to do The Locamotion)…
Kylie has had a successful career that has span 25 years, but what have been her highlights?
“Firstly getting a record deal, I was on Neighbours, as you know. The Locamotion being a hit, which led to so many other things. Maybe performing at the Olympics,” says Kylie.
This week Kylie gave a special performance for Prince Charles and Camilla. “It was to wish them well on their tour to Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. But the big news is – I think I made Prince Charles do The Locamotion. If we speak again in another 25 years that might be right up there,” laughs Kylie.
Adventurer Bear Grylls talks about wanting more children, wearing tight pants, why he won’t be following his father into politics and explains why he learned to backflip from YouTube.
Bear on wanting more children and wearing tight pants…
Bear has three sons, all showing signs of following his adventurous footsteps, but Bear admits he hopes a daughter will join his brood.
“I’d love loads of kids,” says Bear. “Somebody said I’ve got to wear tighter underpants, that’s how you get a girl. I don’t know, it might be an urban myth. I don’t wear underpants but I’ve started to wear them more now,” laughs Bear.
Bear on his politician father – Michael Grylls…
Bear’s father, Michael Grylls, was a Conservative Politician, but Bear tells Jonathan that this isn’t a career path he will ever take.
“I grew up watching him and I just think it’s tough and everyone hates you. I don’t want to be a politician, I’m not clever enough. I’m good at climbing trees,” says Bear.
Bear on learning to backflip from YouTube…
In recent years, Bear has taught himself to backflip. He explains, “It was a few years ago now. I hit 30 and I thought ‘I don’t want to reach the end of my life and not be able to do a backflip’, if I don’t learn it now I’ll never be able to learn it,’ so I got on YouTube.”
Jonathan challenges Bear to show off his backflipping skills in the studio and he nervously attempts the flip.
Comedian Russell Howard tells Jonathan why his job is so great and he jokes that he’s disappointed Simon Cowell and The Stig have been voted more fanciable than him.
Russell on writing his show Russell Howard’s Good News
Russell spends hours watching footage and writing jokes for his TV show, but Russell tells Jonathan why it’s never a chore.
“I write the show with my mates so it’s fun.” “We’re sat in a room making each other laugh. It’s a pretty great job,” says Russell.
Russell on his looks and being less fanciable than The Stig…
“I’m always on this thing they do in Heat magazine called ‘The top ten people you fancy but you hate to admit you fancy’, so king of the mingers essentially,” laughs Russell. “I’ve been beaten by Simon Cowell and I was beaten by The Stig – The Stig doesn’t even have a face.”
