Preview - Room 101

Frank Skinner returns for a sixth series of the Orwellian comedy where guests try to get rid of their pet hates forever.

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 13th January 2017

Frank Skinner clears some space in a basement bulging with bugbears, as a fresh series of the comedy panel show beckons.Catherine Tate, Nigel Havers and TV presenter Rylan Clark-Neal offer pet peeves for Skinner's Orwellian alcove; picks from the pissed-off participants include try-hard hipster restaurants, prearranged paparazzi shoots and - in a move that may well goad viewers into using a BBC bias hashtag or 10 - Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
