Paul Merton and Suki Webster star in a new episode of this warm-hearted comedy. Comedian Danny and his superfan Sheryl finally go on a proper date.
Paul Merton and Suki Webster star in a new episode of this warm-hearted comedy, exploring the obsessive narcissistic culture of so-called celebrity, the desire to be famous and the urge to be near it.
Surprisingly, after Sheryl broke into the hotel room of her favorite stand-up comedian Danny Heywood and castigated him for not replying to her fan mail, the pair met again and agreed to go on a proper date. All is going well until Danny spots TV producer Karen Francis. She is looking for a comedy magician to perform the “saw the woman in half" illusion.
Danny would love to perform the trick but he needs to find an assistant quickly. Much to Sheryl’s surprise, Danny asks if she’d like to become half the woman she used to be?
Then the TV producer throws a spanner into the works that could rip our would-be lovers apart forever.
