A host of comedians and celebrities pay fond - and irreverent - tribute to some TV legends in these star-studded Comedy Roasts

  • Barbara Windsor and Jimmy Carr

    Barbara Windsor: A Comedy Roast

    Barbara Windsor's long, varied and extremely successful career is honoured in a gala evening jam-packed with the country's best comic talent as well as some of Barbara's close celebrity friends.

    A line-up that includes Alan Carr, Sean Lock, Rich Hall, Paddy Kielty, Bernard Cribbins, Cheryl Fergison and Christopher Biggins all get a chance to have a tongue-in-cheek pop at a national treasure, and those that can't be there on the night also get to chip in on film, including Michael Sheen, the cast of EastEnders and Leslie Phillips.

  • Sharon Osbourne

    Sharon Osbourne: A Comedy Roast

    Sharon Osbourne is famous for her outrageous family, her Hollywood lifestyle and her acid-tongue and honest opinions - all of which make her the perfect roast victim. But can she handle being in the firing line for a change?

    A glittering array of roasters, including Jimmy Carr, Louis Walsh, Gok Wan, Alan Carr, Patrick Kielty and Keith Lemon, take their lives in their hands as they test the limits of the legendary Mrs Osbourne's temper.

  • Bruce Forsyth

    Bruce Forsyth: A Comedy Roast

    Legendary light-entertainment host and catchphrase king Bruce Forsyth steps forward to receive his roasting, with Jimmy Carr looking after proceedings. Forsyth has been in the entertainment business for 68 years, so there's a wealth of biographical material to feed the jokes - and a queue of celebrities just itching to take a shot at the TV veteran.

    His roasters include Jonathan Ross, Jack Dee, Jason Manford, Jon Culshaw, Sean Lock, Barry Cryer, and his wife, Wilnelia.

  • Chris Tarrant

    Chris Tarrant: A Comedy Roast

    Jimmy Carr hosts the proceedings as roasters Jack Dee, Sean Lock, Paddy McGuinness, Sally James, Jimmy Carr and special guest Sir Terry Wogan provide outrageously mischievous 'tributes' to their target roastee, Chris Tarrant.

    Taking a break from his day job of making millionaires and entertaining the British public over the airwaves, Chris Tarrant steps up to face the harsh taunts of his fellow celebrities and former colleagues. Tarrant puts a brave face on as his life and career are relentlessly and meticulously picked apart.

  • Davina McCall: A Comedy Roast

    Davina McCall: A Comedy Roast

    Jimmy Carr hosts the proceedings as Davina takes centre stage to endure an evening of insults and friendly abuse.

    The comedic talent ripping into Davina includes Rich Hall, Debra Stephenson, Patrick Kielty, Ed Byrne and Jack Whitehall. There are also appearances by Chris Moyles, Dermot O'Leary, Julian Clary and Fearne Cotton.

    And of course no night with Davina could be complete without a large showing from her television offspring, the Big Brother contestants, including; Brian Dowling, Nikki Grahame, Sophie Reade, Brian Belo and Sam Pepper.
