Episode 6: Michael McIntyre's Big Christmas Show

Summary

The comedy star brings the latest series of his entertainment showcase to a conclusion with another festive special, recorded at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London's West End.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

McIntyre pulls out all the stops for this week’s Midnight Gameshow, although it gets off to an inordinately slow start as he decides to take the stair lift up to the unsuspecting person’s bedroom. The poor victim is then blindfolded and fed a Christmas dinner by Ainsley Harriott. If that’s not a living nightmare, I don’t know what is.

The funfest resumes back at the theatre where Alesha Dixon hands over her mobile. As she has the most infectious laugh on TV, expect mild hysteria from her and the audience. There’s also an extremely appropriate guest for the Unexpected Star of the Show spot.
