Episode 4: Room 101

Summary

Frank Skinner invites Kaiser Chiefs' frontman Ricky Wilson, and comedians Joe Lycett and Zoe Lyons to express their anger over people and objects that upset them, as the trio vie to banish their top peeves, annoyances, irritation or worst nightmares consigned to oblivion. Their gripes include new towels, escalators and the bartender at the local pub.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

There’s always the risk that Room 101 will subside into general midlife whingeing, but host Frank Skinner does his damnedest to keep an edge on proceedings. This time it helps that comedian Joe Lycett is on the panel, with specific 20-something concerns like “people who show me YouTube videos” and, very specifically, “the bartender at my local pub”.

As ever, it’s the diversions and digressions that kick the show up a gear, including Frank’s demonstration of using towel-gloves to dry himself: “It’s like being frisked by a Muppet”. Also addressed, in depth, a key dilemma of modern life: should you stand or walk on a travelator?
