Talk show host and banter merchant Jonathan Ross returned to TV last night, with Harry Styles, Sir Mo Farah, Doctor Foster actress Suranne Jones and comedian John Bishop making an appearance on his couch.

As Mo is the only British man ever to have beaten Phillip Schofield's game show The Cube, Ross decided to make his other guests attempt the show's notoriously difficult Expulsion challenge.

Bishop and Ross also had a go at planking and as you can imagine the results were hilarious:

The 50-year-old funny man also credited Wossy as his biggest inspiration, saying his first appearance on his chat show had spring-boarded his comedy career.

Speaking on the show, he said: "I remember coming on your show when I first started and to be honest with you, your show made a massive, massive impact on my career.

"I was on tour at the time doing little venues and literally the week after, the sales went up so you kind of got a sense that if you're represented properly on something, it can make a big deal."

He also spoke about interviewing Katie Price for a new series of his own talk show In Conversation With....

When the 56-year-old host asked if he was surprised by any of his guests, John said: "We've just edited the Katie Price show and like everybody else, I've got an idea of Katie Price but when you sit down with her and you talk for an hour, you find a completely different person with a different narrative."

However, despite having branched out into other career paths, Bishop admitted that stand-up comedy would always be his 'first love'.
