The four part series features an ensemble cast led by Tom Selway and Howard Nightingall, with recurring appearances from Liam Noble (Peep Show, Spirit Breaker, White Gold), Verona Rose (Pants on Fire, Eastenders), Dean Kilbey (All The Money In The World, Eastenders, The Job Interview) and Britain’s Got Talent finalist Andrew Lancaster. The show is written and directed by multi award-winning writer/ director Dan Summers.

The daytime chat style show features an array of entertaining topics throughout the series ranging from ‘National Men Who Don’t Drive Day’ to DILF fashion outfits; from soft drink tasting to live calls with celebrities and outrageous members of the public.
