Steph and Dom: Slang, poetry and Anthea Turner

Steph and Dom

Friday, September 21, 2018

The formidable Steph and Dom will be joined by Anthea Turner, a poet and the senior assistant editor at the Oxford English Dictionary on their show this Saturday.

Blue Peter legend Anthea will be dropping in to the studio to discuss her recent appearance on the Channel 5 reality show Celebs in Solitary, which challenges some well-known faces to live in solitary confinement for five days.

Other participants in the show - which aired last year with members of the public - included rapper Professor Green, World's Strongest Man winner Eddie Hall, and comedian Shazia Mirza.

Senior assistant editor at the Oxford English Dictionary, Jonathan Dent, will also be dropping in to discuss the introduction of slang.

Did you know that last year “mansplaining” and “hangry” made it in to the dictionary?

Also joining Steph and Dom in the studio is poet Clair Whitefield.

A dose of a celebrity news will be administered by Lizzie Cundy, with James Sloan as your host for the latest from the world of film.

Talk about a line-up!

Join Steph and Dom on Saturday and Sunday, 10am-1pm, on talkRADIO.
