When Chat Shows Go Horribly Wrong

This 3 hour special, narrated by Gloria Hunniford, features TV chat show fails on a monumental scale. Boozy guests, stroppy hosts, technical trouble and on-screen bust-ups are just some of the things that have left chat show viewers gobsmacked. Expect the unexpected, as the people who were there recall chat shows’ most toe-curling moments. Highlights include motor-mouth Katie Hopkins tripping herself up on live TV, chat show legend Russell Harty getting an unfortunate blow to the groin and Stan Boardman who opens up in a rare interview about his famous Fokker joke that shocked a nation back in 1986. There are also rare moments of imperfection from TV chat show heavyweights Clive James, David Frost and Jonathan Ross.
