David Beckham set for Jonathan Ross' 'Friday Night With' swansong
Wednesday 30 June 2010
David Beckham and Hollywood star Jackie Chan will be the final guests as Jonathan Ross bows out from his BBC1 chat show, it was announced today.
Ross will quit his Friday Night With ... series on July 16 as his contract with the BBC ends.
There had been speculation that Russell Brand was in talks to appear on the swansong edition of the long-running programme as he promotes his Get Him To The Greek movie.
The last batch of guests was confirmed today. Beckham's appearance comes in the wake of England's exit from the World Cup, and just days after inaccurate rumours spread that he and wife Victoria were to separate.
The programme will also feature a performance by Roxy Music at the request of the presenter.
The band - featuring original members Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson - are currently playing a series of European festivals including Bestival and Lovebox in the UK.
Ross's Radio 2 show will also end in July.
