Asked about his new series on the show, Romesh said, ‘I’ve written very nice sitcoms with funny scripts, but I’ve never written anything that’s plot-driven — you want it to be funny but you also want to drive this twisted story. It was amazing.’

He jokingly added, ‘Despite playing a married couple, Katherine[Ryan]who is a really good mate of mine, made it clear from the start that there would be no touching – she was adamant.

“In fact I think it was a deal breaker for her!”

Romish also spoke about his new special, The Cynic, on The Graham Norton Show.
