Jennifer Saunders recreates the fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally

For There’s Something About Movies

Jennifer Saunders has recreated the famous fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally.

The comic initially seemed reluctant to take part in the skit for Sky One's There’s Something About Movies, which she has just joined as team captain, protesting: 'This isn't really a competition I've ever wanted to win.'

She joked that it has been so long since she had a real orgasm that the only way to get into the mood was to think about an Ocado delivery.

And it seemed to do the trick, as Tom Davis and host Alan Carr could barely stifle their laughs as she acted out the scene.

There’s Something About Movies is on Sky One and Now TV on Thursdays at 9pm

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
