Series one, episode one

All hidden camera shows need a USP. ‘Trigger Happy TV’ had a man with a big telephone. ‘Off Their Rockers’ had old people being rude. ‘Trojan Donkey’? A man with a funny voice. Diminishing returns…

It’s really hard to see how this new series got commissioned, other than that it’s presumably incredibly cheap to make. The format feels played-out, the humour one-dimensional and the mediocre scenarios are returned to again and again. For example, celebrity stalker Ursula might have got away with mistaking a young bus passenger for Peter Andre if the sketch had been a minute long. It might even have raised a smirk. But back we go, time and again, until the joke’s been hammered to death.

‘Trojan Donkey’ finds itself in the post-pub slot. But you’d have to be seriously well-refreshed to give this more than five minutes.
