Fern Britton talks to high-profile figures about how their beliefs have shaped their lives.
In the first of a four-part series, Fern Britton talks to Ann Widdecombe, whose feisty public approach as a politician once earned her the title of 'Doris Karloff'. Ann transformed her image when she moved from the floor of the House of Commons to the shiny floor of Strictly Come Dancing. Her faith has gone through a dramatic change, too; she became a high-profile convert to Catholicism after she became disillusioned with liberal reforms in the Anglican Church. Throughout it all, she spoke her mind, and does so again to Fern Britton.
In the second in her series of Advent interviews, Fern Britton talks to the girl from the Welsh valleys who has become a global singing star. Katherine Jenkins speaks candidly about her upbringing, the loss of her father, her love of music and her extraordinary determination to succeed. She has sold millions of albums and found fame and fortune - but what role does her Christian faith play? Friends and family give their unique perspective, and Fern explores the values that guide the singer's life.
He started off singing in working men's clubs in the north of England and rose to international stardom, performing for presidents and royalty. But Russell Watson counts his blessings every day, because he has fought off one illness that threatened his career and two brain tumours that threatened his life. Fern Britton talks to the singer known simply as The Voice.
Fern Britton interviews actor Brian Blessed and discovers that behind the famously loud voice is a man fascinated by religion and especially Jesus. Brian discusses his teenage breakdown and a love of adventure that has taken him up Everest three times. Friends Stephen Fry and Virginia McKenna pay tribute to one of Britain's most flamboyant actors.
