Episode 1: You're Back in the Room

Summary

Phillip Schofield returns with the comedy game show in which five must team up to win a potential £25,000 by completing apparently simple challenges. However, to claim their prize, the contestants must overcome the hypnotic trance they have been placed under by celebrity mesmerist Keith Barry. For this first edition, Phillip and Keith are joined by Andrea McLean, Sherrie Hewson, Linda Robson, Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams - the ladies of Loose Women - who will be pampered by the hypnotised contestants.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

TV’s most tumultuous game show returns to offer more hypnosis-fuelled chaos. Typical of the show’s spectacle is the point in this first episode where a policeman from Bedfordshire, hypnotised to believe he’s the Wicked Witch of the West, attacks host Phillip Schofield and tries to rip his shoes off, shouting “Give me my ruby slippers!”

Said policeman is one of five guinea pigs who can win a cash prize if they complete simple tasks, made harder by hypnotist Keith Barry creating “bedlam in their brains”. The scenes of cocktail making and flower arranging are impressively daft: it’s like watching an improv workshop full of rubbish actors… who are drunk.
