Dom Joly looks to fool the nation in this ITV1 programme.

Fool Britannia turns the UK into Dom's very own prank playground, poking fun at what it means to be British by unleashing a host of characters and pranks.

No-one and nowhere is safe as Dom targets members of the public the length and breadth of Great Britain... they're not even safe on holiday.

From our confusion with modern rules, our passion for queuing or our inability to complain, Dom's colourful array of characters set to shock, surprise and shine a light on the comedy state of the nation.

Series 2 stunts include a butcher who discovers he has just accidentally catered to a party of vegetarians, and a bridesmaid who realises she will be attending the wedding from hell, courtesy of her own sister.

Other tricks up Dom's sleeve include a talking Doner Kebab, a Bouncer training up his 10 year old son on the job, and the Asbo Vicar.
