Series 1, Episode 3 - Chris Tarrant

The last in the Comedy Roast series hosted by Jimmy Carr, includes 'roasters' Jack Dee, Sean Lock, Paddy McGuinness, Mark Watson and Jack Whitehall, who provide outrageously mischievous and in some case, borderline offensive tributes to their target 'roastee' Chris Tarrant.

Taking a break from his day job of making millionaires and entertaining the British public over the airwaves, Chris Tarrant steps up to the plate to face the harsh taunts of his fellow celebrities and former colleagues. Nothing is left to chance, but Tarrant puts a brave face on proceedings as his life and career are both relentlessly and meticulously picked apart.
