This week's packed show sees Mike back from his travels and returning to the co-host chair, and an interview with Grammy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated composer and producer Simon Franglen. Although you might not know his name, you have most definitely heard his music and seen his films. Simon Franglen's credits include 4 of the top grossing films of all time and 6 of the top selling albums of all time!

Over the years, Simon has worked with artists across the board including Michael Jackson, Madonna, Celine Dion, Boyzone, Gary Barlow, and even a number of London grime bands.

His work can also be heard on Spectre, Skyfall, Se7en, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Moulin Rouge!

The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke & Vincent D'Onofrio is released in UK cinemas, 23rd September 2016.
