It was another brilliant episode of Late Night Lycett on Channel 4 on Friday evening (14 April).

Hosted by Brummie comedian Joe Lycett and filmed live from Digbeth, the show has solidified itself in the weekly television schedule with three great episodes. Actress Dame Joan Collins, reality television star Gemma Collins and model Munroe Bergdorf all made an appearance in episode three of the show.

Comedians Joel Dommett and Katherin Ryan also appeared on the programme again. One of the most hilarious moments from last night’s show was when Dame Joan Collins and Gemma Collins re-enacted the iconic 1980s TV drama Dynasty.

Joan starred as Alexis Colby on the TV show from 1981 to 1989. Her character Alexis was known for her scheming plans against her ex-husband. Joel Dommett told Gemma and Dame Joan to act out a scene which would have been in the iconic television show.

Gemma showed off her acting skills in the scene, saying: “Step aside Dame Joan! there’s a new Collins in town,” to which Joan replies: “I’m the origional OG.” Gemma replies: “You are hunny I’ll give you that, but move over because i’m here!” Joan them mimics a slap on Gemma’s face as a sound effect is played over. You can watch the clip above.

And those who watched last week will be very glad to know that Linda Biscuits was back in the building after her firing her during last Friday’s episode. Lycett sacked the much-loved work experience crew member much to the disappointment of the special guest. The trainee camera operator and Labrador was fired from her role by Joe Lycett live on air for taking liberties in the studio.

Linda Biscuits’ firing caused outrage from the live studio guests and fans but despite this, the comedian did not change his mind.The four-legged assistant had a wee on the set, with Joe telling her: “Linda Biscuits, this is not the sort of behaviour I will tolerate from a crew member. No, it is unprofessional.”

“There is a code of conduct and p*ssing on this set is definitely overstepping the mark. We sacked Carlos the sound man for the same thing, I can’t do double standards.Linda, you’re sacked.” The firing saw boo’s and chanting of “Linda” from the guests, and to everyone’s joy, she made her return to the show on last night’s episode.
