In a special episode of the Film Stories podcast, Simon is joined by writer/director Ol Parker for a chat about his varied career.

They go from Grange Hill and an unusual first screenplay commission, through the Exotic Marigold Hotel movies and getting the call for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Plus: a look at a movie that never came together, and a whole lot more.
