Make Me Prime Minister

With the 12 candidates down to 11 following last week’s first departure, it falls to ex-footballer Holly and former beauty queen Kelly to take the leadership reins and galvanise their teams, as Alastair and Sayeeda challenge the candidates to tackle obesity.

Internet sensation Jackie takes venue operator Danny and diversity consultant Rico on a highly fraught food-shopping expedition. Holly’s proposed policy slogan definitely doesn’t get the reaction she was hoping for from paralegal Conall and Oxford student Alice. And hairdresser Caroline goes on a charm offensive with the attending press, but will her efforts win them round?

With Alastair unable to attend Kelly’s launch, he sends Labour MP Jess Phillips to deputise, but how will she react when her first impression of the team is watching Verity, dressed as a giant strawberry, duel with Danny, who’s disguised as a box of French fries?

As Holly and Kelly battle it out presenting their policies to the public, who will live to fight another day?

Make Me Prime Minister – Tuesday at 9.00pm on Channel 4.
