Comedy Aplenty

 Room 101, BBC One, 8.30pm

Frank Skinner returns to present the new series of the highly entertaining panel show. The programme asks three celebrities to moan about several things, people and objects that annoy them in everyday life and Skinner decides which of them will be banished into Room 101.

Battling it out tonight are comedy star Catherine Tate, former X-Factor hopeful and now TV host Rylan Clark, and acting veteran Nigel Havers.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn features as one of the gripes!


Not Going Out, BBC One, 9pm

Hot on the heels of Room 101 comes the return of another comedy show, as a new series of Lee Mack’s Not Going Out starts on BBC One.

The eighth series of this hilarious sitcom sees Lee and on-screen wife Lucy (Sally Bretton) face their daily struggle after seven years of marriage. Their twin siblings Benji and Molly are now five, and the couple clash over the best way to keep romance in their relationship.

Bobby Ball returns as Lee’s father Frank, while Hugh Dennis reprises the role of long-suffering husband Toby, whose wife Anna (Abigail Cruttenden) continues to prove a misery.
