Toast Of London

Matt Berry and Arthur Mathews, the writers of this bonkers sitcom, have some up with some great premises. We particularly love the central idea behind tonight's episode - it turns out Steven Toast is great at acting in high winds. Cue some funny scenes involving an industrial sized fan. It looks like Toast might actually beat his nemesis Ray Purchase for once! Channel 4, 10:45pm. Guide

Also: 1st Aid training in Trollied; more Never Mind The Buzzcocks; topical laughs with 8 Out Of 10 Cats; a visit to a festival for Some Girls; job shadowing in Scot Squad; & more: Schedule
