Episode 8: Room 101

Summary

Comedy panel show, with Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, actress Sheila Hancock and 8 Out of 10 Cats regular Jon Richardson arguing to have the things they hate consigned to the notorious room, while host Frank Skinner has the final say. Their gripes include house guests, women's toilets and dancing - and one of the celebrities even wants rid of their own brain.

Review

There’s a lot of sniping between the guests in this edition and it’s this, rather than their arguments for putting scented candles, house guests, wedding speeches and the like into Room 101, that produces the most laughs. It’s perhaps inevitable that when Jon Richardson says he never dances, describing it as “arrogant walking”, Craig Revel Horwood responds waspishly that Jon is “probably one of the dullest people I’ve ever sat next to”. However, following that up by making joke-telling one of his pet
hates is a bit strong. Even Sheila Hancock joins in the teasing, albeit inadvertently, until she gets threatened with being consigned
to oblivion herself.
