Mark Morriss is the lead singer of popular indie band The Bluetones, who are best known for Britpop anthem Slight Return.

The Bluetones played last summer’s 1990s-inspired music festival Cool Britannia at Knebworth House and the band topped the UK album charts in 1996 with debut Expecting to Fly, which knocked Oasis’ (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? off the number one spot.

Not content with completing his fourth solo album Look Up, Mark regularly busies himself with many side-projects, from playing rhythm guitar for Toast of London, House of Fools and IT Crowd star Matt Berry’s band The Maypoles, to writing the music for the audio versions of David Walliams’ successful series of children’s books.

Davro – born Robert Christopher Nankeville – needs little introduction.

He is a comedian, actor, singer and impressionist who’s been a familiar face in the UK since his major television breakthrough on the ITV variety show Live From Her Majesty’s in 1983.

His fame reached its peak in the mid-to-late 80s, when he appeared in his own primetime ITV Saturday night shows Bobby Davro on the Box, Bobby Davro’s TV Annual and Bobby Davro’s TV Weekly, which made him a household name throughout the country.

In recent years, Davro has delved further into acting, most prominently, playing Terry Lonsdale in ITV’s Footballers’ Wives and Vinnie Monks in BBC1 One’s flagship soap EastEnders.

He is also no stranger to primetime reality TV, having competed on Celebrity Big Brother and Come Dine With Me for C4, and ITV’s Dancing on Ice.

Running time for the Zoom interviews will be approximately 45 minutes and audience members’ cameras will be off so they won’t be visible.

You will also have a chance to submit questions, both before and during the recording.
