Episode 5: Slap and Tong

Summary

Lee Mack raises serious questions around the use of cling film, Charlotte Ritchie anoints an insect, and Jamali Maddix nearly chokes on a many-sided dessert. Alex Horne helps coax the trio - as well as fellow contestants Mike Wozniak and Sarah Kendall - as they attempt to complete Greg Davies' tasks.

Review

“Yet another activity that Mike Wozniak has clearly done before,” observes Greg Davies as his old friend and Man Down co-star Wozniak, the breakout star of this series, proves to be an exemplary player of Slap and Tong, the game that forms tonight’s final challenge.

Every moment with Wozniak on screen is a delight but the whole quintet are on form as they tackle tasks that include dressing a bee in a new uniform, and wrapping every inch of their own legs in cling film and gaffer tape. In an episode where the tasks are mostly funnier than the stage banter, Lee Mack gets a lot of mileage out of pedantically accusing everyone else of breaking the latter assignment’s rules. When Lee Mack tapes and cling-films his own legs, he does it properly.
