There often comes an awkward moment when the guests outline their pet hates and you wonder if the audience will applaud at the end of the pitch. Sometimes they don’t, and it leaves the celeb stranded, because the line between righteous yes-we-all-hate-that anger and ranting about minutiae is a hazy one.

Luckily, host Frank Skinner usually rides to the rescue with a well-observed quip. Tonight, he tops Mel Giedroyc’s gripe about people who overpronounce Italian words in restaurants (“spag-HAY-tee”) by observing that if you tried the same in a Chinese restaurant, it would be dreadful. Meanwhile, Hugh Dennis hates leaving cards, and Cilla Black believes there’s a conspiracy surrounding knickers.


Singer Cilla Black, Outnumbered star Hugh Dennis and The Great British Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc compete to have their pet hates banished by Frank Skinner. Their gripes include dream bores, giant charity cheques, Las Vegas, knickers and people who make others sign cards.
