The Sarah Millican Television Programme

Series 3 - Episode 5



It’s no longer surprising that what comes out of Sarah Millican’s mouth can be more than a bit cheeky, but it’s unsettling to hear her abandoning the Shields vowels for a low, posh accent. It’s all in an evening’s work, of course, and in honour of guest Gabriella Ellis, ex of Made in Chelsea. Gabs is both posh and game, but with quickfire slots it’s the guests who know their stuff who answer back best.

As part of Sarah’s forensic investigation of money-saving telly tips, Martin Lewis is asked whether any of the shampoo in his house is not nicked from a hotel, while Dan Cruickshank must defend the entire scope and nature of his subject, including oral history.


The comedienne talks to historian Dan Cruickshank about history shows, money-saving expert Martin Lewis about finance-themed programmes and Made in Chelsea star Gabriella Ellis about the reality genre. The host also performs stand-up monologues inspired by things she has seen on TV.
