Every week they do the same similar things, a day out with the guest, a spoof news show, a quick quiz with all questions being about the host, a public stitch up, the audience asking anything they want, and a final game to win some prizes for an audience member, the only change is the guest host.

His days as the glamour boy of Blue rapidly fading into the distance, Duncan James has already transitioned from arena concerts to musical theatre via Chicago and Legally Blonde and here manages to make gay transvestite dad Tick a surprisingly rounded camp character, plucking heartstrings when he finally gives fatherhood a shot and bonds with his son.
Adam Bailey, too, finds redeeming features in vicious little sissy Felicia, while Simon Green’s ex-show queen Bernadette is a never just a fella in a frock.
