When a supermarket issues a new car share scheme. Assistant Manager John Redmond (Peter Kay) and Promotions Rep Kayleigh Kitson (Sian Gibson) are forced to commute together every day. But will they get along?
This is a spoof chat show with Caroline Ahearne playing OAP Mrs Merton . The concept is that Mrs Merton will invite celebrities who are in on the joke onto the show and ask them cheeky questions :
To lorraine Kelly : " What plans do you have for the menopause ? "
To Debbie McGee : " What attracted you to the millonaire Paul Daniels "
I've no idea if anyone phoned up to complain about Mrs Merton asking these type of personal questions ( Spoof chat show KNOWING ME KNOWING YOU did receive a barrage of complaints about the presenter Alan Partridge ! ) but one edition did feature a record number of complaints about one of its guests Bernard Manning
For those who don't know Bernard Manning is an old hat working mans club comedian . The reason he's rarely seen is because
a ) He wasn't all that funny to start with
b ) His jokes usually involve outrageous racist comments
So maybe he wasn't the greatest guest to have on in the first place , I mean it's not like he was going to go down well on a light hearted spoof chat show . He was seated next to the previous guest Richard Wilson and they both got into a heated argument with Manning making comments about Asians during the war and stating that because some people might have been born in England this in no way makes them English
" So Bernard " Asked Mrs Merton " Apart from Aldoph Hitler who else do you admire ? "
Cue some more comments about the war from Manning and meltdown at the BBC complaints department
