Tell Me on a Sunday charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980’s. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success and love.

Sarah Millican • ‘Outsider’ • Friday 8 July
In the past when you put Sarah Millican outside, she asked things like: “Why? Where is the taxi? Do I need a cardie?” and said things like: “There’ll be wasps. I’ve nothing to sit on. Is that poo? Can we go home?”
But things have changed. Now she has outside slippers. She can tell a chaffinch from a tit (hey). But she still can’t tell if it’s an owl or her husband’s asthma.
Sarah Millican is venturing outside. Bring a cardie…
“To watch Sarah Millican is to watch a box of comedy fireworks going off” – The Independent
