Further details

In tonight's episode Rhod is joined by comedians Sally Phillips, Richard Ayoade and Roisin Conaty as they travel back in time to their teenage years.

In the closely-fought competition to win the title of Most Embarrassing Teenager, Sally reveals a mortifying school nickname, Richard tells the story of having his tooth knocked out at his first (and last) rock gig, and Roisin is quizzed by Rhod on her love of New Kids On The Block.

Rhod himself shares the story of a teenage trip to France, which ends with him accidentally crushing his testicles. We revisit three embarrassing years for popular culture to find out which one had the worst hairstyles, most inappropriate comedy and naffest pop charts - and finally Rhod sets a quickfire quiz which sees the guests answering questions on...their own teenage selves.
