Restaurant apology required! Mel finds Graham Norton guilty of standing her up for a lunch date.
Graham Norton confesses to an original sin about the time he faked sickness as a child and had his appendix removed as a result.
New comedy panel show Unforgiveable sees celebrities confess their darkest secrets, Danelle de Wolfe discovers more from presenter Mel Giedroyc.Danelle de Wolfe, The Herald, 2nd February 2021
In Unforgivable, Mel Giedroyc's been saddled a format that she doesn't even have much confidence in, the needlessly complex negative scoring, unnecessary gong, and convoluted rounds becoming a running joke even from episode one. But ignore all that hoo-ha and this is essentially a chat show stripped back to the good bits. Guests can forget plugging the latest project or telling us what a delight their co-stars were. Just tell the entertaining and embarrassing stories from your past.Steve Bennett, Chortle, 2nd February 2021
There is the makings of a good show here, the idea is a decent one and allows the guests to tell stories that you might not hear in your average chat / panel show. But to have any chance of being consistently watchable it would require the titular Giedroyc to be jettisoned and Lou Sanders replaced as the host, and the guests to give stories which haven't been rehearsed to death, along with them being as good and as game as Norton was. As it is this is something which is probably worth waiting for Dave to put the best bits up on youtube rather than sitting through an entire episode and having to witness a fair few painfully dull tales, that or only watch the episodes where the guests are people you're extremely fond of.Alex Finch, Comedy To Watch, 3rd February 2021
