Channel 4 to launch a comedy complaints show

With Tom Allen, Jessica Knappett and Munya Chawawa

Tom Allen, Jessica Knappett and Munya Chawawa are to host a new Channel 4 series criticising  TV programmes. 

Provisionally titled Complaints Welcome, the six-part series is set to air later this year. Each week the trio of comedians will be joined  by guests from the world of TV as they ‘playfully dissect’ viewers’ gripes, looking for resolutions, and ultimately deciding whether the feedback will be upheld or rejected. 

Allen said: ‘Jess, Munya and I will be putting TV on trial. If you’ve got an opinion on anything from the corsets in Bridgerton to a frown about Countdown, we want to hear from you. Complaints Welcome will be standing by to review the reviews viewing viewers viewed."

The show will feature sketches, stunts and studio discussion covering all aspects of TV, say programme-makers  Rumpus Media, who also produce Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back. Complaints Welcome will be Channel 4's second TV show about TV shows, following the huge success of Gogglebox.

Channel 4’s head of entertainment, Phil Harris, said: : "If there’s one thing we love more than telly, it’s complaining about telly. Munya, Jess and Tom will get to the bottom of viewer complaints in their own sharp, satirical and unique way.’

Rumpus Media boss Iain Wimbush said: ‘We all have axes to grind and stuff that irritates us, even with our favourite TV shows - and now the brilliant Munya, Jess and Tom get to calmly take these grievances out of our hands, and sort each issue out with comedy sketches, investigations and debate. It's really very exciting.’
