The Nightly Show with Dermot O'Leary: final week review

The Nightly Show started out as train-wreck telly in which the (entirely unintentional) crashes, bangs and wallops never ceased. But as ITV's disastrous 10pm chat-fest entered the final week of its first (and presumably only) season it had achieved a dreary variety show competency.

Radio Times review

If you've been missing Dermot O'Leary since he left The X Factor you'll be glad to see him returning to our screens here, where he's in his giggly element as the teams are forced to solve a collection of culinary conundrums.

For example: why do tortoises have such big shells? What would you give a butterfly for a special picnic? What two things can you get from a Kangaroo's nipple? And why would someone eat washing detergent for a multi-course Christmas dinner?

And if nothing else, you'll leave this episode with the unlikely mental image of Stephen Fry struggling to cook a cheap microwave dinner. Now that's food for thought.
