Celebrity chat show, presented by Michael Aspel between 1984 and 1993. The show was successful in attracting high-profile guests including then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. In 1993, Aspel & Company was censured by the Independent Television Commission because of an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone who were promoting their joint business venture Planet Hollywood. For a time, Aspel & Company performed well for ITV in the highly competitive Saturday night ratings, but after the Planet Hollywood controversy Aspel vowed never to host a chat show again.
On 20 June 1993, Kate Bush appeared in Aspel & Company, promoting her new album The Red Shoes. After a short interview together with Lenny Henry and Victoria Wood, she did a lipsynch performance of Moments Of Pleasure.
