Celebrity Carry On Barging review – these stars could use a touch more sauce

10 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Watching Nigel Havers and chums take a boat trip through the countryside was perfectly pleasant – even if the show never delivered on its bawdy title

I don’t understand what the Carry On element of Celebrity Carry On Barging (Channel 5) is. Debbie McGee may have a hint of Barbara Windsor about her, and she does mention that her late husband never wore PJs in bed. But her bra doesn’t fly off on the canalside, and Nigel Havers doesn’t do a Kenneth Williams impression, flare his nostrils and give us an “Oooh I say” as the barge slides into a tunnel.

No, it’s just four celebs (the above, plus Lorraine Chase and Simon Callow) on a canal boat for a few days. It’s not unlike the shows Prunella Scales and Timothy West did, or John Sergeant. Celebrity barging – it’s a TV thing now.

Friday’s best TV: Celebrity Carry on Barging; Birds of Paradise – The Ultimate Quest

Debbie McGee, Simon Callow, Lorraine Chase and Nigel Havers try out canal boating; a wheelchair-using journalist ventures into the wilds of Papua New Guinea. Plus: Arena – Alone With Chrissie Hynde

If you can get past the slap-and-tickle title, this is a slice of gentle telly inhabited by charming celebrities. Debbie McGee, Simon Callow, Lorraine Chase and Nigel Havers are flung together to try out canal boating. They’re a likable bunch and watching them take in the scenery is the perfect antidote to Celeb Big Brother fighting. As they begin their journey, they giggle when a man called John Inman tells them how to operate the locks. Hannah Verdier

Friday’s best TV: Room 101; Tina and Bobby; The Eighties

12 January 2017 10:09 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Orwellian comedy show about pet peeves returns. Meanwhile ITV serves up another icon-dramatisation – this time featuring Bobby Moore. Plus, yet another excuse to laugh at shoulder pads and big hair

Frank Skinner clears some space in a basement bulging with bugbears, as a fresh series of the comedy panel show beckons. Catherine Tate, Nigel Havers and TV presenter Rylan Clark-Neal offer pet peeves for Skinner’s Orwellian alcove; picks from the pissed-off participants include try-hard hipster restaurants, prearranged paparazzi shoots and – in a move that may well goad viewers into using a BBC bias hashtag or 10 – Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
