Episode 2: Room 101

Summary

Comedian Noel Fielding, footballer-turned-presenter Ian Wright and actress Joanna Scanlan reveal their pet hates to Frank Skinner in the hope he will banish them to Room 101. Things that really get on the guests' nerves this week include spiders, stinky cheese, hangovers and bad toast etiquette.

Review

Two startling moments arrive in rapid succession this week. The first is Arsenal legend and football pundit Ian Wright launching what’s more or less a feminist critique of Grease: as the father of daughters, he disapproves of the hoops the female characters have to jump through, and indeed the trousers they have to squeeze into, to be deemed worthy of the males. In the consequent badinage, host Frank Skinner claims not to be able to sing Hopelessly Devoted to You without bawling. He’s willing to demonstrate.

Hard pushed to compete with this are Joanna Scanlan, who accurately details the top no-nos when sharing a butter knife, and spider-hater Noel Fielding.
