2021020420210304 (R4)Actor, comedian and broadcaster Stephen Mangan presents a comedy chat show about shame and guilt.

We're used to hearing celebrity interviews, where stars are persuaded to show off about their achievements and talk about their proudest moments. Stephen is not interested in that. He doesn't want to know what his guests are proud of, he wants to know what they're ashamed of. That's surely the way to find out what really makes a person tick.

Here, in a half hour of wit, hilarity and toe-curling revelation, he takes the confession of award-winning theatre, TV and film star David Tennant.

Tennant's three stories of embarrassment and shame – that he's carried around in secret for years – are put under the microscope and awarded appropriate penances, so that he can leave feeling guilt free.

Actor, comedian and broadcaster Stephen Mangan presents a new comedy chat show about shame and guilt.

Each week, Stephen invites a different guest into his virtual confessional box to make three confessions - with remarkable storytelling and surprising insights.

We're used to hearing celebrity interviews where stars are persuaded to show off about their achievements. Stephen's not interested in that. He doesn't want to know about his guests' proudest moments, he wants to know what they're ashamed of. That's surely the way to find out what really makes a person tick.

Stephen and his guest reflect with empathy and humour on why we get embarrassed, where our shame thresholds should be, and the value of guilt.

Series guests include Marian Keyes, Cariad Lloyd, Anthony Horowitz, Phil Wang, Dr Phil Hammond and more.
