Synopsis

Catherine Tate, the catchphrase queen, woman of a thousand faces and cultural icon shapes the minds and vocabularies of schoolgirls everywhere.

Can't a gentleman meet Bonnie Langford, be unusually courteous and want a simple massage without insinuations that he is gay? How very dare you.

Foul-mouthed Nan Taylor makes her first television appearance, poor Elaine Figgis' streak of bad luck in love has become as wide as a motorway, and we haven't even mentioned Lauren.

The show began in 2004, bringing relief to catchphrase-lovers the world over fed up with the old staples "I'm a lady", "Brilliaaaant!" and "Don't tell him, Pike".

Tate's motley crew of characters included Margaret, the woman who jumps at the most everyday of noises; Bernie the Irish nurse; and Aga Saga Woman, who has to deal with daily traumas like when Daddy "couldn't find any good brie" on a business trip to France.

By the time the second season aired celebrity fans like Peter Kay, Una Stubbs and Paul Whitehouse were queuing for a cameo. New characters joined the "cast", including the extremely tactless Allie and unorthodox dog trainer Moo Shepherd.
