The co-host of new Dave series Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable reveals what’s been keeping her entertained during lockdown
By Virgin TV Edit
Think your favourite celebrities are squeaky clean? Think again, because Dave’s brand new comedy panel show Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable is about to show you everyone has a dark side.
Presented by Mel Giedroyc and Lou Sanders, each episode of this hilarious series sees three stars reveal some of the most deplorable acts they’ve ever committed. Think lies, pushing legal boundaries and generally being awful. The prize? Being branded the worst person in the room.
The first episode kicks off with TV presenter Graham Norton, The Last Leg comedian Alex Brooker and American comic Desiree Burch – and they are all ready to shock you with tasteless tales from their chequered pasts.
Before Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable starts on Dave, we caught up with Lou Sanders to find out what’s been keeping her entertained during lockdown…
TV show: Succession
It’s one that everyone is going to say. The acting? Phenomenal. The drama? Phenomenal. The writing? Phenomenal. It’s just tick, tick, tick. You’re so drawn in, your body is electrified by it.
Film: Hunt For The Wilderpeople
I just love that little kid in it. It really pulls at your heartstrings. It’s so funny. I also think Taika Waititi is phenomenal.
Documentary: Three Identical Strangers
I was a bit late to the party on this, but it’s brilliant.
My friend showed me this the other day. When you write, you grow a virtual tree. You can also plant real trees, so your work equates to planting real trees.
Video game: FIFA
During the first lockdown I tried to play FIFA. My god, it’s really hard! One of my friends learned to do the celebrations before he could score a goal.
YouTube: Skating videos
I’m just watching skating videos on YouTube at the moment. That’s all I watch. They ones that teach you how to do a dance or how to jump. Skating is new for me and is female-dominated. It’s nice to watch women do these things. I feel like I’m always watching men.
Podcast: Where Should We Begin? With Esther Perel
It’s brilliant. Not comedy at all. Esther Perel is a counsellor, she’s really intuitive, and it’s an insight into relationships. Couples will come to her when they’re at crisis point and she goes into why things are as they are.
Guilty pleasure: Social media
It’s a guilty pleasure because it’s a brain rot. I don’t think it’s good for me, but I spend too long on it. I should immerse myself in other things, but sometimes you’re just there scrolling wondering what the hell I’m doing.
