Critic Reviews

Score: 4.5

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian May 22, 2021

"Weaver wasn’t a bad host, though she missed a couple of chances to delve deeper, such as when Vine said he was immensely lazy and she changed the subject to cycling. She kept the jolliness levels high, but great interviewing is about listening, mostly."

James Marriot • The Times UK May 20, 2021

"My main takeaway from the show is that Jackie Weaver generally doesn’t have the authority. She is, after all, a random parish councillor interviewing trained media professionals. Still, there’s something so eccentric about the format — an elderly member of the public interviews celebrities — you almost wonder whether it mightn’t outlast Weaver’s brief moment of viral fame."
