This whimsical show, built in the neurotic but sharp-witted image of its host, returns for a second series. Given that Richardson has made a career out of being a fusspot, it probably shouldn't be a surprise that the format has been tweaked. The panel discussing their anxieties has expanded from two to three - kicking off with Joe Wilkinson, Kiri Pritchard-McLean and, bravely, Richardson's wife, Lucy Beaumont - and there is a new "Worry Lab" area to allow for extra slapstick.
