Gyles has been described as Britain's best raconteur, and is putting his talents to use in The One To One Show.

I'm sure you say that about all the venues on your one man tour, Gyles.

Gyles then remembers his first ever stand up gig, 40 years ago, when the Oxford graduate was incongruously on the same bill as Bernard Manning in a Manchester club.

"I think I know how that misapprehension came about," he says. "I'm the patron of the National Piers Society. But that's celebrating piers like Brighton Pier, not peers!

"He wanted to come to Birmingham as the city was a centre of the Arts and Crafts movement and Pre Raphaelites. He told the audience 'I will talk on any subject you suggest' and a man said 'Will you talk about the Queen?', to which he replied 'Her Majesty is not a subject'.

"I went out onto the stage and started performing to a strangely silent audience. I realised they were looking over my shoulder, so I glanced round and saw that Bernard had put two topless go go dancers behind me to gyrate in time with my jokes.

"Sadly I won't be bringing them to Birmingham."

He considers his greatest achievement to be introducing a private members' bill which led to the 1994 Marriage Act. It allows people to get married in venues like castles and hotels rather than register offices.
