Warm, witty and occasionally waspish, Joe Lycett is just the man to keep us entertained during lockdown. It’s fortunate, then, that he is presenting two lengthy prime-time TV series, with another on the way. And after a whirlwind few months making them, Lycett – while mindful of the suffering that Covid-19 has brought many – concludes that the new normal has been beneficial to his mental health.
Joe Lycett's Got Your Back
Monday 13th - Wednesday 15th April
Written by James Graham (Brexit: The Uncivil War) and directed by RTS Award-winner Stephen Frears (A Very English Scandal), Quiz dramatizes the scandal of the ‘Coughing Major’ on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? back in 2001.
The new eight-part series will see Lycett once again battle both national business and solo rogues to seek justice for wronged consumers.
Lycett and his consumer sidekick and ‘technical assistant’ Mark Silcox will tackle everything from cowboy builders to email scammers.
The first series saw Lycett take on giants such as Britannia Hotels and easyJet, and managed to change the policies of Uber Eats, SpareRoom and RBS.
Everyday customer service heroes were celebrated and people got thousands of pounds back.
