Review

The best bits are generally not the guests railing against things they hate — insurance adverts, parrots, and so on. The best bits are when host Frank Skinner disagrees or tries to win them over. Tonight he comes to the defence of reality TV stars, Chris Moyles (“I see him as a cheeky Jabba the Hutt”) and Jedward. The finest moment comes when guest Alice Cooper tries to condemn balloon sculptures and our host introduces a man with a riposte so jaw-droppingly impressive, even Cooper has to bow in mock-worship.

Also airing his peeves is Chris Packham, revealing an unexpected resentment — in the series’ broadest swipe yet — of the entire human race.

Summary

Seasoned rocker Alice Cooper, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? host Chris Tarrant and wildlife presenter Chris Packham compete to have their pet hates banished for ever, on the comedy panel show chaired by Frank Skinner. Their gripes include reality TV stars, balloon animals, parrots, Jedward, Chris Moyles and kids' artwork on fridges.
