It's official; class is back! Riots on the street, old-Etonians in government, a workforce on strike, Downton Abbey, The King's Speech, Geordie Shore, the royal wedding, vajazzling... class is everywhere.

In this one-off special, Frank Skinner is joined by comedians Micky Flanagan, Roisin Conaty and Miles Jupp to assess whether class is still relevant in the 21st century. Probing analysis meets comedy chat, as our comics become intrepid reporters, examining the subject through their own unorthodox reports.

Upper-middle class Miles tries to masquerade as a cockney, socially mobile Micky tries to appreciate the arty tastes of the middle classes, and lastly salt-of-the-earth Roisin wonders if she could ever fall in love with a person from the upper classes, when some of them don't even understand the concept of a fish finger.

Frank and the team dissect their findings in front of a studio audience as they explore the funny side of class.
