Episode 14: Horrible Histories: Ridiculous Romance

Summary

King Henry VIII goes on a TV dating show, notorious femme fatale Queen Cleopatra tries to find love online, Emperor Nero stars in his own horrible romance movie, and Victoria and Albert sing about how they found love at first sight

Review

All the regulars are out in force with new sketches in this Valentine’s Day one-off special, but don’t expect them to go soppy. Not when Rattus Rattus’s idea of a romantic meal is “cockroach in jus de rubbish bag” and Henry VIII is taking part in a TV show called Dating in the Dark — where he falls in love with Anne of Cleves. Our advice: don’t turn the lights on, Anne!
