The late drummer for Frank Skinner's house band "The Skinnerettes" - Ronnie Verrall - in reality, did much of the drumming that was attributed to the famous Muppet drummer Animal. See more »
As we all know, ITV is celebrating its fiftieth birthday this week, coincidentally 1955 was also the year James Dean's was killed in a fatal car cash. Yes, 50 years ago they both hit the screen.

Coming from the same part of the UK as Frank Skinner, I really appreciate his humour. Frank is proud of his local heritage, being a famous fan of West Bromwich Albion and a Freeman of his local town. I will not comment on the format of the show other to say that it works. I particularly like the stand up routine and the sketches. On one show Frank made fun of false child abuse accusations made against Matthew Kelly. When Kelly came on the show as a guest, he questioned Frank about the matter. It did make riveting television but Frank defended himself quite well. This programme has now been going for 10 years and repeats are on the cable channels all the time. Long may it continue.
