Episode 3: Room 101

Summary

Frank Skinner invites actor Ross Kemp, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and comedian Rob Beckett to vent their spleen about people and objects that upset them, as the trio vie to banish their top peeves, annoyances, irritation or worst nightmares to the depths of Room 101 for ever. Their gripes include misplaced clapping, teeth, expensive water in hotel rooms and snobby shop assistants.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Ross Kemp is probably not the first celebrity you’d think of as a funny guest for this show. But he has a dry sense of humour and, crucially, doesn’t mind Frank Skinner’s incessant “tough guy” teasing.

His presence also gives Skinner and panellist Rob Beckett scope for gags about the Ku Klux Klan (it’s one of the many dangerous subjects Kemp has tackled as well as the Taliban and South American drug cartels). No matter what the item or concept being suggested for oblivion, they’re able to connect it to the KKK. That’s quite a talent when they’re debating the irritation of dinner-party seating plans or why insurance is unnecessary.
