Right now, all over the UK, loved-up couples are enjoying one another's company in bed, or perhaps tucking into a selection of tasty oval chocolate treats post-breakfast, or possibly celebrating the resurrection of the Lord Jesus at Easter church services.

But not Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp.

Instead, we find the UK's most imaginative and playful married couple channelling the spirit of Michael Jackson and Slash with a spirited and typically committed performance of the King Of Pop's 1993 single Give In To Me for their weekly - and extremely popular - Sunday Lunch series.

The song was recorded for Jackson's 1991 album Dangerous, and featured a guest performance from Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash.

Ready? Then in you go...

In June, Willcox will embark on the Electric Ladies tour, accompanied by new wave pioneer Lene Lovich and Republica singer Saffron.
