Joe Lycett Vs Sewage review

The comic is his usual charming, witty self as he tackles the staggering amount of faeces dumped into our rivers and seas. But you may end up under a duvet if you think about it too hard.

The First Team just isn't ready for the big time. Back to the training ground.

TV review: The First Team, BBC2

We might have to wait a bit longer for the real Premier League to start but you can get an early football fix with this new sitcom set in the world of soccer's top flight written by Inbetweeners writers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley. Although a word of warning if you are having really bad withdrawal symptoms, there is no actual football shown. This is pretty much a workplace comedy that happens to be set in the football world. Same shit, shinier cars.
