Mel & Sue - Grrrr.....

Author: darkeyedboy from Windsor, England
13 February 1999

Late Lunch could be just another chat show, but what makes it special, are Mel (Gedroyc) and Sue (Perkins). Both have been friends since their student days and their personalities complement each other perfectly. Mel's sweet and blonde, Sue's dark (sometimes purple) and sharp. The format of the live show is celeb guest cooks a meal for other celeb guests to eat, and then a Q and A phone in, all in front of a live studio audience. Steve, Matt, Dylan and Dan are the resident band who punctuate the silliness, and provide stonking music. Mel and Sue hold it all together, with topical jokes, silly games and sometimes songs. They're both exceptionally quick, the show rarely flags, and they seem to bring the best out of their guests. Light / Late Lunch has a lot of devoted fans, long may it rock.

I loved this show with these two girls playing off of each other to a great degree. Their humour, with such naturalness, was what I think I liked the most. They were so at ease with each other and their guests that it felt like you were just watching a natural chat with people who genuinely liked each other. No nastiness or one-up-manship (did I spell that right?). Just good, clean, happy fun chat and jokes together. I think Light Lunch was where I first saw these two together when I came home from work at lunchtime and would sit down for my lunchtime TV entertainment (something I had never done before, during the daytime, was watch much TV). These two were always entertaining and became an obsession with me - to make me feel lighthearted before I returned to work! Great memories of great times.
