Chatty Man - Summer Special

The last time Alan Carr did one of these summer specials we seem to remember it was anything but sunny outside. This time it really does feel warm though. This bumper-length 90 minute show (with Friday Night Dinner in the middle) features a lot of chatting. The comedy names on the guest list are Miranda Hart, and the four stars of the Inbetweeners 2 - plugging their film even though it'll be #1 at the box office for sure. Channel 4, 9pm. Guide

Also today: it's the final episode of Friday Night Dinner. A wedding is maybe on the cards. Repeats include Doc Martin. Schedule
