The Wright Stuff premieres on Five

Monday 26 April, 9:15am on Five

The live interactive talk show returns with a brand new set. The programme promises lively topical debate as it combines studio discussion with contributions from viewers on the burning issues of the day. This week, Matthew is joined on the panel by property expert Amanda Lamb and food writer Stefan Gates. Monday’s guest is TV presenter, wine expert and newspaper columnist Olly Smith. Having regularly appeared on BBC1’s ‘Saturday Kitchen’, Olly recently landed the role of host on high-energy cookery show ‘Iron Chef’. On Tuesday, best-selling US author Jodi Picoult joins the debate. Presenter and adventurer Ben Fogle finds his way to the studio on Wednesday. Thursday’s special guest is architect George Clarke, former presenter of Five’s ‘Build a New Life in the Country’. And on Friday, Matthew’s guest is singer Rob Spragg – otherwise known as Larry Love – of Brixton-based rockers Alabama 3. The band has released seven studio albums, but is perhaps best known for performing ‘Woke Up this Morning’, which was chosen as the theme tune for HBO hit series ‘The Sopranos’.
