Phil Rosenthal was the creator, writer, and executive producer of the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond - a show loved across the world, and synonymous of a golden age in American TV comedy. Today he's the star in something with a different flavour completely – a food-travel series called Somebody Feed Phil. But his journey to both of these gigs, was longwinded and roundabout, with a few breakdowns and terrible "grey meat" suppers along the way. Speaking with Tom and Fran, Phil shares a hilarious look back at his own life and loves (mostly food), a life-changing partnership with Ray Romano, and finding the funny in everyday interactions.
80s Spain, South-London gangsters and the crazy things you do for love – it’s all to come in week’s Plot Twist as Tom is joined by Jack Rowan, the star of a new series called A Town Called Malice (available on Sky and NOW). Whilst you might know Jack from roles in Peaky Blinders and Noughts + Crosses, he shares the plot twist moment in his career that took him from the boxing ring to our screens – and explains his excitement at entering a show dubbed as a "high-octane, neon Western... a musical love letter to the 1980s."
From Elf, to Iron Man and now the Star Wars franchise with The Mandalorian – Jon Favreau has acted in, produced and directed some of the biggest TV and film hits of the past 30 years.

From Quantum of Solace, to St. Trinian's and Clash of the Titans, Gemma Arterton has seen huge success on the big screen. But aside from being in front of the camera, Gemma is increasingly focussed on the process of making of TV and film from all angles. As well as acting, she's also producing, writing, and now running her own production company, allowing her to champion the stories she wants to tell – including her latest series Funny Woman – recently released on NOW and Sky. As she explains to Tom, learning to take control of her own journey came as a plot twist moment, and it's an interesting parallel with her character Barbara Parker, who find herself on a mission to make a mark in the world of show-business in the height of the swinging 60s.
