Tonight, Harry uses the visit of Kate Humble as the pretext for a wildlife special, complete with his own version of the Springwatch-patented badgercam. Expect a few highlights from Humble's career (with particular emphasis on bizarre Sky outing Wild Things), all presented with Hill's customary safari-suited glee.

Harry Hill's Tea Time moves to tea time slot

The comedy cookery show featuring celebrity guests will now be broadcast on Saturdays at 17:30.

Time to vigorously Vim down that lino as Harry Hill coaxes another famous face towards his comedy kitchenette. Donning the celebrity sous chef apron tonight is EastEnders star Jessie Wallace, who will be joining Harry in a menu encompassing senseless starters and demented desserts, including a tribute to La La Land. It remains to be seen whether the series has already peaked now that Gregg Wallace has met his ovoid alter ego, Egg Wallace.

Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Guardian, 16th January 2018

The series spoofing cookery shows returns with the "first knight of news", Sir Trevor McDonald, taking his turn. It's a prelude to host Harry Hill asking McDonald to do silly things and the former news anchor gamely obliging, showing how he can disappear ("I mustn't misuse these magic powers"), singing and discussing the merits of the coffee machine-inspired Sospresso. The lightest of comedies imaginable, but no less fun for that.

Bruce Dessau's top TV comedy for 2016

It's been a bad year in all sorts of ways, but not in terms of TV comedy. I sat down today to come up with a top ten of the year and had difficulty narrowing it down to ten. Of course there were disappointments and programmes that didn't quite live up to expectations, such as Sky's Andrew Lawrence documentary, but there was still plenty to laugh at here. And if you are quick some of them are still available on various catch-up services. And in case you are wondering, I decided not to include Black Mirror - it was brilliant but just too painfully real to be funny.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 20th December 2016

This week, Harry invites an often bemused but nonetheless game Joey Essex on to his teatime show, to embrace a children's theme. The pair make savoury envelopes using popular crisp brands (an exercise that betrays Joey's unfamiliarity with the inner workings of the post office); a series of chocolate crispy Unesco world heritage sites; and a replica of Sesame Street's Elmo from sweetcorn, paint, Solvite and scotch eggs. It is, as ever, a delight.

Ben Arnold, The Guardian, 27th November 2016

As this week's guest Deborah Meaden discovers, resisting Harry Hill's tide of daftness is futile. Tonight's surreal simulacrum of shiny-floor show hysteria incorporates a gay wedding for dogs ("a first for Sky, I believe," says Hill, dryly) and an unhinged rendition of Pulp's Disco 2000. Its closest relation is probably the finely calibrated mayhem of Shooting Stars, and while it never reaches that show's levels of inspired chaos, it's still a quirky Sunday evening offering.

Interview: Harry Hill is back on our screens

The comedian, 52, tells us about his new programme, his signature dish and being whacked in the face with double cream.

Claire Murphy, The Mirror, 23rd October 2016

Don't expect to tune in to Harry's new cookery show hoping to find inspiration for quick weekday dinners. The hilarious host's tongue is firmly in his cheek as he shows us - and guest Paul Hollywood - how to make such classic culinary delights as 'Greek student non-baking cake'. Just go with it...
