Alistair McGowan stars as Anthony Sharp, the consumer affairs host from hell in this BBC Radio 2 comedy pilot.
Anthony is egocentric, vain, manipulative, misogynistic, crass, paranoid and a generally unpleasant man. As a result, he's enjoyed quite a promising media career.
But he still doesn't have the success he feels he deserves. Anthony is the much-loved presenter of the only - almost the only - consumer programme on the radio. But his nemesis has arrived... the show is to become a double-header and his new co-star is younger, more attractive and already more successful than him. And she's human as well.
