Does anyone remember the sketch show with a sketch in it with a widow who was reminded of her husband by everything? "**** used to love flour" etc?

Sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't picture it as Little Britain. *scratches head*

Definitely Little Britain. The widow, played by David Walliams, had long dark hair and glasses and was sitting in the kitchen with her sister (?)... everything in the room reminded her of her late husband, with lots of crying as a result.

As the links got more tenuous, the sister got more fed up.

I think the dead husband might have been called 'Arthur', although I might be remembering that wrong.

Wasn't it the second series? I remember watching that clip, yet I'm fairly sure I didn't even bother with Series Three as number Two had become so irritating by the end.

You're right Millsy it wasn't the third series

That's a Double fail for Aaron I think

It was actually series 1

Must have blocked far more Little Britain from my mind than I'd realised!
