Rebecca Front takes on Lucrezia Borgia (Sharon Horgan) in a sword fight this week, but not before she has given therapy to more of history's most famous women.

Zawe Ashton arrives at the consulting room as Egyptian queen Nefertiti, Frances Barber dials up the intensity as film noir star Barbara Stanwyck, Katy Brand unleashes her wild side as Gertrude Jekyll and Alexa Chung strikes a pose as Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Also, Dustin Demri-Burns stars as Pandora and, later, portrays a proudly naked Lady Godiva, complete with a thick Birmingham accent.

Also, look out for Michelle Gomez as American socialite Wallis Simpson, Selina Griffiths as a cake-obsessed Marie Antoinette, and Johnny Vegas as a seductive, dancing Salome.
