In the guise of softly-spoken octogenarian pensioner Mrs Merton, Caroline Aherne welcomes a host of celebrities to her "sofa of dreams" for a chat.

With a penchant for shocking double-entendres and a line of at times disarmingly barbed questions, agony aunt Mrs Merton takes viewers and guests alike on an outrageous ride.
