Series 2, Episode 2 - Friends

Some of Britain's best-known comedians and famous faces share their anecdotal experiences and observations on the peculiar behaviour of Brits with friends. Britain is officially not very friendly, ranking way down as the 55th friendliest country in the world. While Americans have up to seven close friends, and the French have four, Brits can count their innermost circle on the fingers of... two fingers.
