It'll Be Alright on the Night

Ah, dear Alright on the Night, it never gets old. But then clips of actors and actresses losing their dignity are endlessly funny, which is why AROTN is still on the go, 35 years after it launched with a chortling Denis Norden.

A chortling Griff Rhys Jones took over in 2008 and he’s back with another selection of bloopers and out-takes. Fry and Laurie did a spoof of this kind of self-conscious “Oops I did it again” sort of giggling years ago, but it’s a robust format. So prepare to guffaw as actors from Corrie and Emmerdale get it wrong, while Ant and Dec, Holly Willoughby and Bradley Walsh, among others, suffer embarrassment.
