Supposing you could get rid of your worst nightmares, what would they be? Each week, a different celebrity guest has their chance to cast the things they hate most into Room 101 - the most horrible and frightening place in the world, as created by George Orwell in his dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The series was hosted until 1997 by Nick Hancock, and then Paul Merton hosted it from 1999 until the final episode in 2007.

A revised format with a panel of celebrities rather than one guest, launched in 2012 with Frank Skinner as host: [c=6691]Room 101[/link]
