Episode 7: Rob & Romesh vs Almost Everything

Summary

Highlights from all three series, including Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan becoming drag queens, going on a very special safari in South Africa and performing with the Birmingham Royal Ballet

Review

Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan’s in-for-a-penny approach shines out in this engaging mash-up of their favourite R&R moments from the past three years. Their dignity-demolishing escapades have included a David Gandy-style underwear shoot and getting up close to a white rhino as safari rangers – though the colonic irrigation scene shares a little too much visual information.

The pair aren’t afraid to show vulnerability, and they certainly don’t hold back with the screaming during a ballet-training ice bath. Their mentors don’t always delight in their ineptitude, and we feel their nerves before a dance on live Jamaican TV… but their utter relief is palpable.

Review

The recent sight of Rob Beckett watching England at Wembley proves he likes his sport. But as many find, “liking” and “being good at” can be worlds apart. And his quest with Romesh Ranganathan to find an Olympic sport they’re comfortable with sees the pair going through the disciplines like a dose of salts.

Their donning of leotards has gymnast Max Whitlock in fits of laughter, while their pommel-horse training on a giant mushroom and a plastic bucket ends with Romesh feeling “like the world’s saddest gnome”. Surely throwing things, with heptathlete Denise Lewis as their trainer, can’t be worse?

It’s hilarious without even trying – and, in the end, surprisingly uplifting.
