Whilst - as acknowledged in The Thick Of It - Simon Mayo is highly regarded as a friendly interviewer who is able to get the best out of his interviewees by simply being nice. Nevertheless, it doesn't always go right.

In 2009, Simon said that David Gest was, somewhat ironically, the worst guest he had ever had on his programme. He has, however, also said something similar about Steven Seagal.

Other interviews that haven't gone exactly well have included those with:

  1. Willem Defoe (so bad it was never aired)
  2. Liam Neeson ("Rmmemm Hrreesmmm")
  3. Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson
  4. Gus van Sant
  5. Naomi Watts
