Room 101 is back, with a number of format changes and Frank Skinner as the new host.

Skinner referees three celebrities each week as they compete for his approval to banish their top peeve, annoyance, irritation or worst nightmare to the depths of Room 101 forever.

Inspired by the original Room 101, which ran for 11 series, the new format has more guests and pet hates. When Skinner appeared on Room 101 in 1995, he successfully managed to banish Action Man toys and unidentified tubes in meat and also nominated David Baddiel's cat to be destroyed. Now it's down to Frank to decide whose dislikes are the most dislikeable.
