Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable
If you enjoy watching well-known celebrities willingly fall off their pedestals, then this new series is for you. Host Mel Giedroyc interrogates her famous guests in an attempt to find out who’s committed a sin so bad they should be deemed unforgivable. At the end, the person who admits to the most deliciously wicked deed wins – so misbehaviour is always encouraged! Available on demand from Wednesday 3rd February, it’s not one to be missed.
Whose Line Is it Anyway?
In the American version of this much-loved comedy show, performers including Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles take part in a series of games that are designed to test their improvisational comedy skills. From ‘Hoedowns’ to ‘Party Quirks’, each is a gateway to hilarity – and often embarrassment. And, as several games require host Aisha Taylor to appeal to the studio audience for help, you can never be sure which direction they’re going to take. Available on demand from 15th February with Dave on UKTV Play.
You have 48 hours to find Nicolas Cage and take a selfie with him – how do you do it? This is just one of the absurd hypothetical questions that hosts Josh Widdicombe and James Acaster pose to their guests on this hilarious game show. Brand new Series 3 is available on demand from Thursday 11th February.
Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier
Stand-up comedian and chronic fretter Jon Richardson analyses, assesses and overthinks every aspect of his existence in this hilarious series. For each episode he welcomes different fellow celebrity worriers, like Sarah Pascoe and Ed Gamble, who must rank their anxieties according to the Worry Index. Together, they talk through their fears and what causes them. While the show touches on a variety of panic-inducing topics, such as nerves about the future and quibbles over technology, there’s something very cathartic about making light of the stresses and strains that at some point plague us all.
Would I Lie to You?
Did Shaun Williamson really steal a shirt from a scarecrow? Find out the truth, along with many more outrageous confessions, in this brilliantly ridiculous gameshow hosted by Rob Brydon. Over the course of three rounds, which include ‘Quick-fire Lies’ and ‘Home Truths’, captains David Mitchell and Lee Mack, plus their teams of celebrity guests, must bluff their way to winning points by convincing the others that each absurd statement read out about them is true – even if it isn’t.
Not Going Out
Keep your eye out for some of the nation’s finest comedians, including Hugh Dennis, Bobby Hall and Deborah Grant, in this long-running sitcom based on Lee Mack’s fictionalised life. After spending years of trying, Lee Mack has finally won over Lucy (Sally Bretton) – but their relationship is far from conventional, and the arrival of their three children makes their home life even more chaotic. As the hapless couple navigate the un-glamorous realities of domestic life, with birthday parties gone wrong and kitchen extensions that entail far more than they bargained for, you can’t help but laugh.
