Episode 7: Room 101

Summary

Frank Skinner is the voice of reason as Jo Brand, Ben Miller and Bill Turnbull reveal irrational irritants including low-rise jeans, sneezing, shoelaces and vampire films.

Review

Ben Miller may have studied for a doctorate in quantum physics at Cambridge, but the man can’t tie his own shoelaces. Or rather, he can’t tie a bow, so he’s devised his own way of tying them – and consequently makes a bid to have laces themselves condemned for ever to Room 101. It seems drastic, but that’s the nature of the show, and at least Miller’s gripes are idiosyncratic, whereas Bill Turnbull gets cheers from the audience for such regulation bugbears as low-slung jeans and people who hog the middle lane on motorways.

Jo Brand, meanwhile, has it in for high-heeled shoes, which gives the production the excuse to show us a clip of a very bizarre race.
