How To Lose Your Virginity In A Few Simple Steps

Cynthia wants to lose her virginity whilst her mum's away, and she has a plan!

Featuring: Susan Wokoma (Cynthia) & Josef Altin (Ryan).


Chewing Gum: this is the future of comedy

From its sex clubs to its seedy zoophilia rings, Chewing Gum is always close to the knuckle - and it's taking British comedy to gruesome, gleeful new heights.

Rebecca Nicholson, The Guardian, 9th February 2017

Will there be a third series of Chewing Gum?

No decision yet - but both the star and Channel 4 are believed to be keen for more of the E4 hit.

Ben Dowell, Radio Times, 9th February 2017
