Series 1, Episode 5 - Relationships

Johnny Vegas and friends look at the funny side of coupledom, from starting out and moving in to who does what around the house, along with all those annoying little habits and romantic gestures in between.

Further details

This week, Johnny and friends ask how we even know when we are in a relationship. Do we just check Facebook? What is the best way to introduce a new partner?

Whose boyfriend's mum gave her a pair of dusty cat ornaments from her mantelpiece as a gift? Who split up with a boyfriend after catching him eating a Pot Noodle in bed? Whose partner leaves cheese in the cutlery drawer? And whose boyfriend finished painting the spare room over a year ago but has not taken the masking tape down? This is the only place to find the answers.


This episode is also known as The Funny Side Of Love & Sex
