On this week's Culture Club, Anne-Marie is joined by the Australian celebrity chef John Torode who pops in for a chat to talk about his first book, and his life with food.

The distinguished actress Emily Watson talks to Anne-Marie about her latest film, Everest. It's based on the real events of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, focussing on the summit and survival attempts of two expedition groups, one led by Scott Fischer – played in the film by Jake Gyllenhaal – and the one led by Rob Hall, played by Jason Clarke.

And the cricketer James Anderson talks about his career and some of the cultural events that he's enjoyed the most recently.
