Tables turned on Parky

Chat king Parky finds the tables turned when he is the one under interrogation for a special edition of TV hit Ashes To Ashes.

Michael Parkinson is making a guest appearance in the Sport Relief episode in which he is given a grilling by straight-talking TV cop Gene Hunt.

The show sees the former chat show host helping police with their inquiries in 1983 as they try to solve the case of the missing Ryder Cup.

Bruiser DCI Hunt (Philip Glenister) and sidekick DI Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes) are brought in to crack the case, and put the spotlight on Parky.

Other names involved in the Ashes To Ashes special include Daley Thompson, Frank Bruno, Steve Cram, Duncan Goodhew and David Gower.
