Review

You can’t invite Miranda Hart on this kind of panel show and not expect her to dominate. She is one of three guests hoping to convince host Frank Skinner that their pet hates should be consigned to the vault of loathing – it’s the new format they launched last year, remember?

So we get the usual airing of comedy grudges, but Hart breaks new ground when she nominates not just smartphones and pineapple on pizza but, in the wildcard round, her own breasts, bemoaning all the times they have embarrassed her (once when she was rolling over in bed naked, they clapped). Skinner, whose role is normally to argue on behalf of the things the guests hate, looks floored.

Meanwhile, Reggie Yates reveals a hatred of drinking yogurt (“I don’t want a cup of gone-off stuff”) as well as the ubiquitous hip-hop handshake. It’s left to John Craven to play it straight. He gets the biggest cheer of the night from the studio audience when he nominates e-books.

Summary

Frank Skinner presents the light-hearted panel show, which sees comedy actress Miranda Hart, TV and radio host Reggie Yates and Countryfile presenter John Craven competing to have their pet hates banished to the infamous room for ever. Their gripes include stuffed marrows, spitting, the hip-hop handshake and Miranda's breasts.
