Last week, Gerry Ryan went on something of a date with Marco Pierre White; the latter ordered the halibut for him and even offered to share his pudding. In stark contrast, Gerry dropped the C-bomb rather loudly in Gordon Ramsay's home and was asked to leave shortly afterwards. This week, Ryan inflicts his, um, unique presenting style on Meat Loaf - a man who's endured enough hardship already. The legendary rock star's life has proved almost as dramatic as the songs for which he is famous. He has sold almost 100 million records, and his album Bat out of Hell is one of the top ten selling albums of all time. But The Loaf has known disaster as well as triumph. He has been declared bankrupt several times. He has had serious health problems, and has lost his voice twice. There have been suicide attempts and drug addictions. He has sued - and been sued - for millions of dollars. Somehow, he has survived it all and continues to draw huge numbers of fans to his stadium shows. If you'd rather watch Billy Piper administer a shower of the golden variety, switch to ITV2 at 10.00pm for the new series of Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
