Danny Dyer hosts Have I Got News for You, review

"I forgot how highbrow this f***ing show is." So said guest host Danny Dyer on Have I Got News For You (BBC One). The EastEnders star's industrial language and nimble natural wit made for an uproarious installment of the hoary old satirical quiz.

National treasure and succinct David Cameron biographer Danny Dyer lands in the host's chair for that increasingly rare thing: a must-see episode of the game old panel show. Ian Hislop and Paul Merton will patronise him at their peril. In the other guest slots are comic Sara Pascoe and Judy Murray.

All Round to Mrs Brown's - review

Brendan O'Carroll agnostics will decry further airtime for the comedian as yet another indication that humanity has outlived its usefulness. But, in addition to a dirty mind, All Round to Mrs Brown's had a big heart and that made it just about tolerable.

All Round to Mrs Brown's review

The Saturday night entertainment series delivers exactly what you'd expect from the nation's most notorious mammy.

All Round to Mrs Brown's: ultimate Marmite TV creation

All Round To Mrs Brown's is another step in the BBC's mystifyingly popular cash cow's road to potty-mouthed world domination, with Agnes setting herself up as a rival to Graham Norton, Jonathan Ross et al.

All Round To Mrs Brown's preview

This probably isn't going to be the saviour of Saturday night TV - and is less appealing than Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway - but it's a natural progression of the Agnes Brown 'brand' and, perhaps surprisingly, not as dire as the sitcom that spawned it. Is that progress?

Steve Bennett, Chortle, 25th March 2017

Brendan O'Carroll's Irish mammy has bossed her way through radio plays, novels, stage shows, an unstoppable sitcom and a movie. So deploying her as a Saturday night chatshow host welcoming celebs into the Brown family lounge - a place where the fourth wall is regularly demolished - doesn't actually seem that weird. Pop prophet Louis Walsh, tennis matriarch Judy Murray and a presumably bemused Pamela Anderson are the first guests.

Preview - All Round to Mrs. Brown's

Love it or hate it, there is still at least one positive to take from it: it can't be any worse than The Nightly Show.
