Michael Barrymore's Easter Egg - Broadcast Details

Regular readers will remember that in my last entry I detailed my thwarted attempt to interview Michael Barrymore. The one-time king of Saturday night TV visited Basildon last month to record a guest radio show for local station Gateway 97.8. I was told he had agreed to interview, but when I arrived he denied agreeing to any such thing and instead pulled me on-air halfway through the recording, turning the tables and interviewing me. His refusal to give me an interview became a running joke throughout the second half of the recording.

When I last blogged, I was still waiting to hear when the show would air. I can now tell you that it will go out at 1pm (GMT) on Easter Monday. The show is scheduled to last an hour, which surprised me because the host, Ros, was concerned about having to cut out several of Michael Barrymore's potentially slanderous flights of fancy. It will be interesting to see what material has and hasn't made the show. From what I remember, I sounded quite bewildered.
