Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Arabella Weir, John Thomson, Simon Day and Mark Williams reunite to remember more than twenty-five years of a true icon of British comedy - and they're bringing the likes of Swiss Toni, Dave Angel, Jesse, No Offence, Professor Denzil Dexter and Rowley Birkin QC with them.

Yes, it's not just the cast who will be interviewed, but many of the show's best-loved characters make their long-awaited return to TV screens, interviewed in all-new scripted segments to discuss their experiences on set, reveal behind-the-scenes gossip, and even share what they're up to now.

We discover Swiss Toni's seduction secrets, the ups and downs of Billy Bleach's tumultuous love life and hear yet more of Rowley Birkin QC's wild and fantastical adventures, all of which happened of course when he was very, very drunk...
