In this clip Nick Helm has lunch with comedy hero, Bob Mortimer, which gets inadvertently gatecrashed by Paul Whitehouse.

Featuring: Nick Helm, Bob Mortimer & Paul Whitehouse.

Press

This foodie odyssey from the star of Uncle seems like an opportunistic brand extension, with Helm guzzling freebies at some of his favourite chow dens and booze holes - but, as the title suggests, there's more going on under the surface. The spaced-out comic dishes up some melodrama between bites that makes it feel like a more lo-fi take on The Trip, with an opening double bill that is London-centric but very fun.

Graeme Virtue, The Guardian, 24th August 2017

Eat Your Heart Out With Nick Helm preview

It's engaging, without being compelling, but surely able to stand the multiple repeats a Dave programme needs. For if there's one thing TV has shown us, viewers can't get enough of cookery shows.
