There's no danger of feeling as if your time has been wasted on brief new comedy Phil's Ill, since each episode clocks in at a mere three minutes. Phil is, as you may have guessed, ill, with a mysterious disease that makes him act like his favourite beacons of man TV. Tonight he goes all Ray Mears on his girlfriend and makes her eat ant larvae. An odd little show, but surprisingly moreish.
