President Bush Senior said that the British Prime Minister Tony Blair is in "enthusiastic step" with his son in tackling international issues. President Bush Senior said that his son faced a more complex situation in a post-September 11th world than he did battling communism during his term in the White House.

"Tony Blair is highly respected in the United States. I think people admire his leadership from afar on these matters, where the US and the UK stand on common ground, so I would say that the special relationship is as strong as ever and certainly the relationship between the President of the US and the Prime Minister of the UK is very very strong."

Also on the show David Beckham and Sven Goran Eriksson spoke of their difficulties coming to terms with the pressures of fame. David Beckham said: "It's hard to come to terms with certain things, but, you know, you cope with it." And Sven Goran Eriksson admitted that interest in his private life was a price you have to pay. He said: "I always said that I accept it and it goes on. The day I don't accept it anymore I will leave this country because that kind of press is more difficult."
