There's no knowing what induced Mel to host a second series of this claptrap. She can't be getting paid much, because her sidekick Lou Sanders had to hold up a copy of Mel's new book, for a free plug.

Unforgivable is modelled on Would I Lie To You?, with its tall tales and a special guest each week with some connection to a panellist. But this format has none of the original's wit, crosstalk or glamour. The only conceivable reason to watch is for the set decor, if you admire 1960s jumble sale tat such as green china dogs and velour armchairs. They're the best thing about the show.
