Episode 8: Room 101

Summary

Frank Skinner invites boxer Nicola Adams, comedian Frankie Boyle and comedy actress Diane Morgan to express their anger over individuals, events and objects that upset them, hoping to curry the host's favour and see them consigned to oblivion. Their gripes include magicians, losing one's keys and life itself.

Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

“I’m now 44,” Frankie Boyle says wearily. “I’ve got a body like a dropped lasagne. Women look at my naked body in the same fearful way that pensioners look at snow.” It’s one pearl among many in the final – and possibly best – episode of the series.

Boyle is on quietly imperious form, getting a big cheer from the audience when he nominates Richard Branson for the room of doom, calling him “a sun-dried Bee Gee”. You couldn’t ask for much more from this kind of show than Boyle batting back and forth with Frank Skinner, but there are also Diane Morgan’s nominations to enjoy, notably “magicians”.

Apart from anything else it allows for a couple of those magic-gone-wrong clips from the internet that bear watching again and again. To be fair, third guest Olympic boxer Nicola Adams doesn’t need to do much more than, like us, enjoy the ride.
