Guests experience new things and give their verdicts to Marcus Brigstocke. It's always fascinating to discover what the guests think of their new experience, but also to find out why they've waited so long to do it. Poet Benjamin Zephaniah had never seen a Bond movie or had a cup of builder's tea - so he'll be discussing his first Bond experience over tea and scones. Meer Syal had never been to a football match. Percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie had never seen the Olympics Opening Ceremony, despite featuring in it, and she has her first experience of Downton Abbey. Comedian Dave Gorman tries going to a strip club and reads his first Dickens. Perhaps most astonishing of all, actor and comedian Les Dennis swallows his first ever piece of cheese.
