Tongue-in-cheek celebrity satire which bends the truth and uses deliberately over-the-top impressions to affectionately mock the famous.

The show gleefully presses its nose against the steamy window of fame to re-create the bust-ups, love-ins and fall-outs of major league celebrities like Posh and Becks, George Michael and Simon Cowell.

Our Review: At first Star Stories didn't make much of an impact upon us however, over time, we did start to enjoy it. However, things were always somewhat patchy though, so its no surprise to hear it has been axed.

Even if you're not a fan, Star Stories deserves praise for acting as a launch-pad for talented comedians like Kevin Bishop, Oliver Maltman, Steve Edge and Laura Patch.
