Very British Problems sees comedians and some of Britain's best-loved famous faces talking about the crushing weirdness and awkwardness of life as a Brit.

Very British Problems is a celebratory show that sees some of Britain's most famous faces share how they struggle against the endless capacity for social awkwardness which comes with being British. How can we be furious enough to tut, but shudder at the thought of complaining? Why do we spend so much of our lives apologising to inanimate objects?

Narrated by Julie Walters, the show features contributions from James Corden, Jonathan Ross, Ruth Jones, Johnny Vegas, Vic Reeves, Paul Chowdhry, Nigel Havers, Freddie Flintoff, Baroness Trumpington, Tameka Empson, Jocelyn Jee Esien, Josh Widdicombe, Alex Brooker, Stephen Mangan, Susan Calman, Grace Dent, and insight from non-Brits Rich Hall and Aisling Bea.

The show is based on the Very British Problems (@SoVeryBritish) Twitter account.
