Varies a lot
7 July 2017 | by DavidYZSee all my reviews

This is a long-running comedy series that used to be shown on BBC Two and which is now shown on BBC One. Celebrity guests nominate things they hate and wish didn't exist to be consigned to Room 101. The host decides whether or not to put them there.

Under the first and second hosts - Nick Hancock and Paul Merton - there was one guest per show. Under the current host - Frank Skinner - there are three guests per show and they compete with each other over whose nominations most deserve to be dumped in Room 101.

How funny and interesting each episode is depends a lot on who the host and guests are. Merton is a much better host than Hancock or Skinner. Some guests are much more entertaining than others - some guests don't seem to fully understand the style and tone of the show.

Dutch, Israeli and Australian versions of the show have also been made.
