LATE Night Lycett launched on Channel 4 on Friday as Joe was joined by guests Dame Joanna Lumley, Alan Carr, Alison Hammond and Katherine Ryan.
Joe Lycett’s new show attracted a peak audience of 1.4m (10% share) with audiences watching at home and in the studio interacting with Joe’s aunties, Pauline and Margaret, Brummie local legends and LGBTQ+ heroes.
‘Hun’ Claire Sweeney also became shop owner for the night as she took over the running of Joe’s local corner shop.
Comedian Alan Carr joined Joe Lycett for a hilarious spoof right-wing news segment titled, ‘Richard Yewtree – Straight Talking’.
Above, in a hilarious clip they read from an autocue to report on several topics including Agatha Christie novels being re-published, news from Europe and asylum seekers.
Joe also asked Joanna Lumley to give his two Auntie’s some tips on how they can raise their decorum, where Joanna hilariously calls Joe a brat”
Dame Joanna also tried her first Greggs vegan sausage roll on Late Night Lycett last night.
As Joe invited her to try it, she said: “I’m loving it. Break them in half and can see the steam rising. Notice the flakey pastry”, leading Joe to say he was becoming “aroused” by her description of her eating the pastry goods.
Fellow Brummie, Alison Hammond, also joined Joe in the studio. When asked if she has decided on her version of the infamous Paul Hollywood handshake, Alison revealed that she will give the contestants on the show a Hammond hug.
Alison said: “Maybe anyone who does a really bad job, I’ll give them a Hammond hug. Obviously, everyone will be really rubbish as they’ll want a Hammond hug.”
Late Night Lycett is available to stream now on All4 and new episodes air Fridays at 10pm on Channel 4.
