The mayhem continues as Rebecca Front trawls the minds of some of history's most famous women.

This week, Sam Spiro roller skates in to the consulting room as Lucille Ball; Sharon Horgan plays a gun-toting Bonnie Parker; Mark Benton pulls no punches as a ravenous, yetieating Mrs Noah; Martha Howe-Douglas's Pocahontas is disillusioned with modern British life; and Morgana Robinson portrays a sex-mad Mary Magdalene, who claims she can "suck the balls off a camel through the eye of a needle".

Michelle Gomez, Selina Griffiths, Frances Barber and Tom Stuart also star as the imaginative, surreal and mischievous sketches come thick and fast.
