What's your new show Mitch Winehouse's Showbiz Rant about?
"It's about me being in the cab with celebrities in the back discussing current showbiz issues. It's not meant to be a serious thing, just a bit of screaming and shouting."
Your first episode is with David Hasselhoff. How did that go?
"We had a lot in common. We were meant to be together for 45 minutes but it ended up being over two hours. We just had a really nice afternoon driving around London talking about the girls and London and everything else. He loves his two girls. He's a very astute man and we had a really good time."
Do you feel you really get to know these celebrities personally?
"Yeah, that's kind of what we're aiming for with the show. It's not a platform to glamorise a celeb - they're in my cab, it's my show and I just want to have a nice chat. Over the years, I've met so many celebrities and generally they're just really normal, nice people who love nothing more than to have a normal chat about normal stuff."
Do you feel any pressure to get an exclusive story out of somebody?
"No, I don't think that's the idea of it. And they're not likely to tell me anything. I'll be showing them the sights, so I can't imagine they'd suddenly turn around and say, 'Oh by the way, I'm a lesbian'."
Do you think there is a bit of an obsession with celebrity culture in this country?
"Well of course there is, it's kind of endemic within the people. They thirst for news on Amy and all top celebrities, which is a bit difficult to get my head around."
Who's the best person you've had in the back of your cab?
"I don't normally bother to turn around and look at them, without trying to be rude. There's two types of cab drivers: people like my friend Hayden who chat to people all the time and then there's people like me who really can't be bothered, in the nicest possible way. I'll just try and get them to where they want to go. I'm not really a busy-body cab driver."
Have you ever talked about Amy to your customers?
"Years ago, when Amy released her first album, there was a big picture of her on the side of the road. I had this guy in the back and I said, 'See that poster over there, that's my daughter'. And he said, 'Look mate, I'm on the phone'. I understand what he was saying. He was a rude bastard, but I understand his point of view."
Do you get harrassed by the press a lot for stories about her?
"To be honest, I don't really talk to the press as such. I've had people outside the door obviously, but most of them are very polite and friendly and they soon go away when they know they are not going to get anything."
Who else have you got lined up to join you in the back of your cab?
"The production team haven't told me yet. I hope they have someone, otherwise it's going to be a pretty boring show, isn' it? I can always get my auntie and my sister. There's no point Amy doing it as I see her and talk to her everyday, so wouldn't be much to say."
How much have you heard of Amy's upcoming third album?
"I've heard a couple of songs from it. It's not dissimilar from the second album - it's going to be great."
Is it still in the early stages or is it nearly finished now?
"What I think is 'early stages' is different to [what she thinks]. She's writing all the time and when she's got the poetry, she can go into the studio and she's quite capable of doing the album in two weeks. So theoretically she could have the album ready in a month's time, but it won't be. When she gets cracking she does it very quickly."
Finally, what do you think of her recent breast enlargement operation?
"I think she looks great. I think every bit of her looks great at the moment. She didn't do her boobs for vanity reasons. There was nothing wrong with her health, but when she lost a lot of weight and started to put it back on, the boobs didn't come back so she felt that it was something she wanted to do. I supported her in that and think she looks great."
