Rosie Tries To Help The Elderly

With Rosie Jones and Ed Gamble

Here's the first episode of Rosie Tries To Help, the new series of Comedy Central shorts starring comic Rosie Jones.

In it, she joins forces with Ed Gamble to try to help the elderly, convinced they are all lonely. 

They try gardening, line-dancing and knitting, with Gamble suggesting: 'I don't know if we're helping or hindering at this point. I think at the moment they feel like they're helping us.'

This is the first of six five-minute episodes the broadcaster commissioned.
