Episode 7: Room 101

Summary

Mrs Brown star Brendan O'Carroll, comedian Bob Mortimer and Countdown numbers expert Rachel Riley tell Frank Skinner what really gets on their wick, in the hope he will banish their bugbears to the infamous room for ever. Their gripes include urinal etiquette, food with bacon wrapped round it and the Essex girl stereotype.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

For a while, Bob Mortimer isn’t having much luck with his pet hates. Nobody seems to share his very specific dislike of shop assistants who put your change in your hand on top of the receipt, or his aversion to wrapping food in bacon.

But when he rails against the unripe fruit sold in supermarkets, suddenly the audience is with him, bursting into applause, and host Frank Skinner is onside, too. That’s the thing with the micro-annoyances aired on this show – they’re merely a leaping-off point for celebrity small talk. Also airing grievances are Rachel Riley (Essex girl stereotypes; officious people in uniforms) and Mrs Brown actor Brendan O’Carroll, who for some reason hates small pedal bins.
