Trivia

Anne Robinson made a memorable appearance in March 2001, in which she attempted to have the Welsh put in, citing that they were "annoying" and she was envious of their constant happiness. Robinson's comments resulted in complaints from Welsh MP's, who accused the show of promoting racism, though this was later dismissed by OFCOM. Paul Merton later revealed that he would often take the guests for lunch prior to the episode to discuss what their choices, but Robinson had been unable to attend the lunch meaning he was unaware of what she was going to say. Following the Robinson episode, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins attempted to put the town of Leighton Buzzard into Room 101, again resulting in a backlash from the town. See more »

The room of doom(101)
8 August 2006 | by thebigeasy555See all my reviews

A novel concept is on offer where a celebrity comes on and states their pet hates and by the choice of the presenter the object of hatred is sent into room 101.Room 101 being oblivion. Nick Hancock was the first presenter and really endeared himself well.Being a fan of 'They think its all over 'I knew what to expect of him and he delivered it.He had his usual dry wit coupled with moments of random outbursts at the guest/audience. Paul Merton was the second host.Again I was familiar with him having watched 'Have I got news for you'.Yet again Paul done what he's good at and remains the shows presenter. The only gripe I have with the show is the range of celebrates and their actual standing.Recent shows have been occupied by z-listers but with a little more quality guests and room 101 will still be a staple of entertaining television
