Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable is the brand-new comedy show in which the nation's favourite comics and celebrities compete to convince Mel Giedroyc that they are the most Unforgivable person in the room. To do this they will have to dredge up their most outrageous sins, lies, legal transgressions and morally bankrupt behaviour.
In each episode three celebrities come clean and regale tales of their most despicable deeds and uncharitable behaviour as they are probed by host Mel Giedroyc and her sinful sidekick Lou Sanders for all the dastardly details, in the show that scratches away at the polished and preened surfaces of some of the nation's favourite faces to reveal their dark underbellies.
The eight-part series welcomes a whole host of names from the world of entertainment including Graham Norton, Jennifer Saunders, Richard Ayoade, Harry Redknapp, Gemma Collins, Tom Allen, Jo Brand, Darren Harriott, Clare Balding, Johnny Vegas, Sara Pascoe, Sophie Duker, Alex Brooker, Desiree Burch, Richard Bacon, Ed Gamble, Jimmy Carr, Sindhu Vee, Phil Wang, David Baddiel, Rob Rinder, Judi Love, Chris Kamara and Josh Widdicombe.
Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable airs Tuesdays at 10pm on Dave, from 2nd February and will be available for catch up on UKTV Play.

Ever since it was knee high to a TV remote, Dave had an idea. It wanted to be the first place viewers would come for brand-new, award-winning entertainment from the biggest and brightest stars and production companies in the UK. And in the years since, it has launched some of the most exciting and best-loved titles on TV. There are names like BAFTA and Emmy-nominated Taskmaster - now in its ninth series -, Judge Romesh, Hypothetical, Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier and Comedians Giving Lectures. And of course there's Dave Gorman, whose inquisitive mind is returning to the channel for Terms and Conditions Apply. It's not just in front of the camera where the comic genius lies either, with a wealth of scripted treasure such as Sliced, Porters and the globally popular Red Dwarf.
Dave's not content just to make you laugh and share gags with your mates though. Expedition with Steve Backshall and Hurricane Man are showing you regions and aspects of the earth never before seen on TV. Red Bull Soapbox continues to delight with its boundless capacity for invention. And stepping away from the TV entirely, Dave's partnered with CALM to launch the "Be The Mate You'd Want" campaign and the "Conversations Against Living Miserably" podcast.
Reaching 20million viewers a month, Dave's come a long way, but it's only just getting warmed up.
