Episode Date
S8 Ep 6: Luke Evans
00:41:58

This week’s guest flew straight into mum’s kitchen from Los Angeles, where he’d been for his new film premiere, armed with his mother's banana and nut loaf! Hollywood actor and singing heart-throb, Luke Evans tells us all about his upbringing in the Welsh valleys, how he lives for a Dalston Doner kebab and who his favourite on-screen kisser is. We are treated to an award winning karaoke performance around the kitchen table, with only a 'little' wine. Encore, Encore!

S8 Ep 5: Charlotte Tilbury MBE
01:00:40

Well daaaaaaarrrrling, if there’s ever a time to crack open the bubbly over breakfast, it's when ultimate goddess Charlotte Tilbury pops over to mums! The Queen of glam, and our first makeup artist on Table Manners talks to us about growing up in Ibiza, sleeping in her make-up, jet setting round the world and painting A-lister's faces. As if mum couldn’t love her anymore, she arrived with champagne & homemade gazpacho in hand and a suitcase full of lippie. Get ready for a ‘darling-off’ and stay tuned for a Lennie lipstick! Enjoy!!

S8 Ep 4: Yannis Philippakis
00:44:06

A lesson was learnt here - don't invite a rock star into your home on a Friday night and expect mum to hold back on the wine, or hold back on baiting me to drink more. Currently number 1 with their new record, we welcomed the wonderful Foals front man Yannis through our doors. We celebrate the band's marriage, talk a LOT about Greece and his Greek Jewish heritage (much to mum's delight), the reason he couldn't perform at the Mercury Music prize this year and his love for Creme Fraiche. He resists offering up his last supper and to be honest, the night's a bit of a blur - so much so we forgot to take a photo!

S8 Ep 3: Jess Phillips MP
00:57:26

This week we welcomed Birmingham-bred Labour MP Jess Phillips for brunch. Brother Alex hid upstairs (as he does when one of his favourites is downstairs) whilst we ate Turnip and Sweet Potato Fritters with Fried Eggs on top and an Ottolenghi Apple cake.

We talked about watching Scandal whilst writing her second book 'Truth to Power', getting the blue tick on Instagram, her 'instagrammable' husband, home made Rhubarb Vodka and her son and his friends updating her wikipedia page to say that she ate Quavers in the bath. She'd stock pile toilet-roll for Brexit and her Karaoke song trumps Liam Payne's in a big way.

Enjoy this, it was an absolute pleasure to have her over x

S8 Ep 2: Liam Payne
01:02:26

After showing mum that underwear pic, she couldn't hide her delight and enthusiasm at having our first ex One-Directioner at the Table Manners table. Although on a strict diet and fitness regime, Liam was a perfect guest enjoying what he could of the fantastic Beef and Mushroom pies we made him using a Waitrose & Partners recipe with their No. 1 range ingredients. We talk to him about dealing with fame, his terrible karaoke song choice, being a dad, finding love and happiness, tattoos and his favourite food being airport lounge calamari... Nothing was off the menu, even mother's filthy mouth, and we loved it! Liam Payne is served. X

S8 Ep 1: Antoni Porowski
00:55:15

Well, we are back and this time I've brought my whole family to live with mum for the foreseeable future, or until she gets tired of my slobbish ways. So as a sweetener for mother dearest, I decided to bring a real life Disney Prince to Clapham. The dreamy Antoni provides a real share all episode; we talk coffee fixes, guacamole, champagne grapes and he doesn't choose a last supper, he demands a last day of food. Get ready to hear us ogle over the king of the Queer Eye kitchen. Table Manners is served!

S7 Ep 3: Grace Campbell - Live from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
00:43:37

What better way to end our Edinburgh special, than to get rising stand-up star, Grace Campbell on the show to discuss feminism and competing with Tony Blair.

It was such a pleasure chatting to fellow podcaster Grace about why she’s never going into politics, her love of fish tacos, protest shenanigans & trying to get a date with Jeremy Corbyn's son.

Thanks so much to everyone who came along to see us in Edinburgh (and those who bought a tea towel) - we had a ball!! We’ll be back very soon for Series 8. Make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss an episode.

S7 Ep 2: London Hughes - Live from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
00:43:49

How we cackled and gasped at South London's funniest feminist London Hughes. With 5* reviews for her Edinburgh show all over the gaff, we talk to the brilliant and wild Ms Hughes about a lot of d*ck, having the longest name, vegans, bad table manners, saying no to a Nandos Black card and eating Maccy D's in Chelsea. Props to London for devouring our sausage rolls and not wanting to share them with the audience. While this isn't R rated anymore it's still preeeetttty explicit ....my kinda gal! Enjoy and catch her incredible show if you're lucky enough to. X

00:40:26

After a nervy ride up to Scotland with a sweaty savoury Cheesecake, hot off our book shoot, what better way to start our Edinburgh series with an award winning comedian and writer Heidi Regan to ease the pressure! 

We talk to the Australian Stand up about poaching eggs, surviving on microwave meals, misophonia and debate over a 'self-saucing' pudding. Shout out to previous table manners darling Joe Dempsie and his family for being fabulous co-hosts! X

S6 Ep 12: Olly Alexander
00:48:58

Following his triumph at Glastonbury, we’ve managed to bag Years & Years frontman, Olly Alexander for the season finale of Table Manners Series 6. Olly talks about his coming out experience, Pride, his obsession with Kylie, how he only drinks champagne and the band's global search for the best doughnut! Even mum’s flat tyre didn’t stand in the way of a gorgeous lunch with Olly. Despite being a vegetarian, mum says Olly can come over again, anytime, she loves you!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this series as much as we have. Thanks to every guest who has held the new baby and dealt with a chaotic household! We’ll be back for series 7 very soon, but before then, we’ll see you in Edinburgh!! X

00:59:13

The Guilty Feminist herself, Deborah Frances-White joins us round the dinner table for today’s episode. With over 65m podcast downloads under her belt, a Royal Albert Hall gig this weekend and an army of followers, Deborah is inspiring, charming and hysterical. With fingers in the Eton mess and whilst downing champagne, we talk about her ‘fading’ from being a Witness, her mum’s incredible Pavlova, searching for her birth parents and Table Manners Olympics.

I’m a feminist but....I love that she added me into a secret Love Island WhatsApp group

S6 Ep 8: Richard Curtis
01:01:45

All in aid of Comic Relief, Table Manners is joined by the legendary comedy screenwriter and co-founder of Comic Relief, Richard Curtis. He’s written some of the greatest films & TV shows ever made; Notting Hill, Love Actually, Black Adder... But Richard Curtis can’t get enough of Love Island and particularly Lucie... it is what it is!

In this week’s special, we’re joined not only by Richard, but by his fabulous partner - and babysitter - Emma Freud, along with 2 Comic Relief competition winners, who entered the Table Manners chaos with mum and I and even brought a starter! We chat about pet tortoises, eating hotdogs in the cinema & of course, falling in love – this is a good’un! Enjoy!

S6 Ep 7: Hayley Squires
00:46:22

This week's guest is a national treasure. Since watching her in 'I, Daniel Blake' I've been obsessed with BAFTA nominated actress, Hayley Squires, so was delighted to finally have her join us for dinner! A blow torch disaster ensued resulting in soggy brûlées and mum literally on fire. Good job Hayley came to the rescue by bringing us a delicious home baked banana bread. We talk all about Hayley's love of cereal, how she eats a chocolate bar a day & her new love of baking. We know everyone will adore her as much as we do.

Super star actress and all round amazing lady Noomi Rapace, tells us all about her upbringing on a Swedish farm, how she grew up on cornflakes & toast before moving to London and joining the foodie crew whilst bonding with mum over their shared love for leopard print. We chat in great detail about the greatness of eggs, truffle salt and how to throw a Bondesque cavier party. And I may attack her on her 'guilty pleasure' food. Love you Nooms, what a woman!

S6 Ep 5: Róisín Murphy
01:02:24

I had every intention of dressing to seriously impress one of my musical and style icons however, when Róisín Murphy arrives an hour early, she gets work-out gear, greasy hair and she has to hold the baby whilst I sort the toddler's dinner. Good thing she doesn’t believe in showering every day and also shares my passion for the beloved baked potato. We talk Met Gala lewks, boiled eggs, her mum's Irish stew and her Italian partner 'beating his meat' whilst also discussing the music industry. 

Darling Roisin felt so comfortable at ours she even RINSED my rhubarb fool (with mum having to step in to defend me). This episode is raucous, naughty and exciting, just like our fantastic 'no holds barred' musical wonder-woman, Ms Róisín Murphy

Salut! This week mum shows off her best French with chef extraordinaire, Raymond Blanc. As well as answering our demands of bringing pud, the Michelin starred chef couldn’t resist taking over mum’s kitchen to show us how it's done; from corkscrews and emulsions to apricot trees and gardens, we learnt it all! Raymond tells us all about his journey into becoming a chef, frog hunting as a child, why he’ll never eat strawberries in winter & the brilliance of using water in his iconic recipes. Bon appetit!

NYC Season - Ep 6: Sara Bareilles
00:41:28

It's about to hit the West End so what better way to celebrate than to chat to 7-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles, the woman behind the original music and lyrics of Tony nominated musical, Waitress. 

We chat tour rider requests ( I realise I am totally neurotic on tour whilst she's rock n' roll), where to get the best pizza in NYC, why you shouldn’t order sushi takeaway & writing love songs about Obama. Enjoy this slice of sweet Bareilles pie! 


Thanks for listening to our special NYC Season. We came, we saw, we ate, fell out & we’ll be back for Table Manners Series 6 very soon. Make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss an episode!

This week, we have a New York Icon, someone who has many an incredible story to tell.

I like to describe this man’s voice as being like Christmas. This week’s guest is the super talented and equally delightful Gregory Porter. Making my husband most jealous that we got him in NYC and not in Dalston, we chat Sticky Toffee pud, pre-performance rituals & family traditions, all whilst munching on mum’s very American Buttermilk Chicken – eat up!

NYC Season - Ep 2: Samin Nosrat
00:46:41

Beyond excited that we managed to bag this week’s guest. I read her book the moment I got my hands on it and am addicted to her Netflix original series, 'Salt Fat Acid Heat'. Samin Nosrat loves food just as much as we do, so get ready for an episode completely full to the brim of food and everything to do with it. 

We talk about all about her new found fame, our shared love of ice cream, where we’re going wrong on Mexican food and her favourite London restaurants. We love Samin!

S4 Ep 10: John Bishop
00:44:49

What better way to end the series than to do a extra special live episode of Table Manners with mum’s ultimate crush John Bishop, live from Google’s fantastic Curiosity Rooms. 

In a festive special, John tells us how he does Christmas ‘vegan style’, fish guts, his massive ‘talent’ as well as how he runs a farm (what is it with comedians?!). Listen until the end to hear John's Uber rating reveal...

Thanks so much to Google Pixel 3, we hope you enjoy this episode!

Table Manners will be back on January 30th, with a very special mini series. 

Merry Christmas everyone! Love Jessie and Lennie x

S4 Ep 9: Mel B
00:48:44

It’s not very often you can say you’ve got a Spice Girl in your kitchen... but this week’s guest and season finale is none other than Ms Melanie Brown. Mum pulls out a winning roast dinner whilst Mel ogles over her stuffing and we ply my daughter with cake so she doesn’t interrupt the juicy parts of Mel’s tumultuous story. Yorkshire puddings, fainting goats (?!?) and which Spice Girl has the worst table manners are all on the menu.

Table Manners returns for a Christmas special on December 19th - but for now Spice up you life!

S4 Ep 6: Tim Dowling
00:47:29

This week we speak to Author, Guardian columnist and part time rock star Tim Dowling. And we see how Mum’s obsession with this charming (albeit slow eating) columnist comes a little too close to Kathy Bates in ‘Misery’. We delve into the truth behind his relationship with his wife, TV dinners and the perfect brunch. And I realise I eat far too quickly.

Table Manners is back!! And what better way to start series 4 than with the ultimate kitchen goddess… Nigella Lawson. She has been top of our list since day one, so brace yourselves for mum and me melting over her. We talk midnight snacks, her being a fussy eater as a child (there’s hope for all our children), eating rice pudding for breakfast...and apart from her love of Vegemite, she can do no wrong. Table Manners is served!

Alan Carr. We knew we were in for a treat but could this be our funniest guest yet?! From the moment he walked in discussing his farm animals' sexual exploits, to his eventual 'Come Dine with Me' scoring of 1/10 for us - my GOD we laughed. And drunk. This was such a pleasure to listen back to and I hope you enjoy it too!

What do you do when you have the god that is Ottolenghi round? Well, you make him bring dessert and ask him enough questions until he eventually cooks the main too! I can also confirm that friendships can be made through persistence or even stalking. We speak about his children, his husband and their surrogacy process and (finally!) simplifying his dishes.

Tracey Thorn. Singer, songwriter, novelist, one half of Everything but the Girl - I absolutely loved chatting to her. As a singer we have been likened to each other but I hadn’t realised how many similarities we actually had. We talk about stage fright, hypnotherapy, taking your family on tour and the one question journalists always annoy us with. This episode is best served alongside a martini, a dose of summer sunshine and Everything But The Girl’s ’Missing” on the speakers. Cheers!

Alice, Jamie & James from My Dad Wrote a Porno... what a riot we had! I’m surprised we managed to record a podcast at all. This evening reminded me so much of the dinners we used to have at my mum's growing up - everyone howling with laughter and staying until the wee hours. So wee that mum left hours before we finished recording. If you’ve listened to MDWAP you’ll know what to expect: adult themes, sexual content and strong language. Basically all the good stuff.

So it's the SEASON FINALE with Stacey Dooley! And what a guest she was. We’d barely taken the chicken out of the oven and mum was already won over. Stacey has carved out a name for herself that is respected amongst the best. A woman with a knack for disarming subjects in the most hostile of situations. We get some tips on squeezing information out of guests, where to eat in Brighton and even the best tactics for shitting in shoeboxes. See you very soon for series 3!

Felix White. Some of you know him from The Maccabees, some of you know him from his cricket journalism but I know him as the new boy at school who I forced to go out with me at 9 years old. Since then we’ve shared many experiences; a few teenage snogs, our first TV appearance and even our first mugging. He’s had countless dinners at Mum's over the years and here pops over to mine for one more. Yala!

S2 Ep 7: Jay Rayner
00:41:16

How does one prepare a dinner party for a food critic?! After the initial flapping Mum took off to make sure her hair looked fabulous and I put my Paxman hat on and whipped out hard hitting questions such as “Would you do Greg Wallace?” 

This week its Jay Rayner making us feel all nervous about our hosting abilities. We like to think the three helpings of lemon ice cream secured us a solid 4 stars...

S2 Ep 6: Dermot O'Leary
00:45:10

Oh Dermot. Not since mum cooked for Ottolenghi has the Ware household been so flustered to host a guest. Utterly charming, definitely deserving of his ‘nicest man in showbiz’ tag and potentially the biggest secret foodie we’ve had so far. Points were only lost by not divulging the X Factor gossip that mum so desperately wanted. What a true professional. 9/10.

S2 Ep 5: George Ezra
00:38:10

Oh George Ezra. What can I say? The night had so much potential... Mum was looking forward to a Budapest duet and instead it ended in a catastrophe that my pelvic floor definitely wasn’t strong enough for and our first emergency Deliveroo order. We’re so sorry George.

S2 Ep 4: Amol Rajan
00:37:42

Is there anything Amol Rajan hasn’t done? Presenter of The One Show, youngest editor of the Independent newspaper, judge on Masterchef, and now currently the BBC’s Media Editor. Over a savoury cheesecake he manages to makes us laugh with his penchant for Del Boy dinners and nearly gives mum a heart attack with his last minute vegetarian request. Pass the piña coladas, let's get started!

S2 Ep 3: Ralf Little
00:40:23

Ralf Little. The most intensely brilliant guest and Twitter debatee. What you don’t see here is the three hours after we stopped recording sitting around the table setting the world to rights. What you do see is the lowdown on the Royle Family, ruined pancake days and our invite to Jeremy Hunt to finish the NHS debate once and for all. What a night!

S2 Ep 2: Paloma Faith
00:49:25

Paloma Faith - inspiring woman, powerful voice, beautiful hair. She taught us so much in this episode. Giving celebrities food poisoning. Random acts of kindness. And most of all: never trust your guest's temporary dietary requirements!

So for the very first episode of Table Manners, I invited over my old mate and pop superstar Sam Smith. Over mum's turkey meatballs we talked about Sam's childhood food experiences, living without booze, and what he would choose for his death row dinner. Oh and he gave his very scary impression of a movie icon... Get stuck in people! Jessie x
