To quote Edmund Blackadder: “The hustings are over, the bunting is down, the mad hysteria is at an end. After the chaos of a general election, we can return to normal.”
Perhaps the best way to do so is by looking into what Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker have made of the result. Earlier on in the series, they played an oversized version of “Hungry, Hungry Hippos” to try and guess the result and claimed Jeremy Corbyn would win. Seeing whether they were right are plenty of guests including Steve Coogan, Jamie Oliver, Brendan Cox, and yet-to-be-named politicians.
This is the first of two extended episodes of The Last Leg, with next week’s edition being a “Re-United Kingdom” special in memory of Jo Cox.
The Last Leg Elegtion Special is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
