    The complete 21st series of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 impressions show - plus three Christmas specials

    The award-winning topical satire show returns with an online audience to serve up more mimicry, mockery and mordant wit. Series 21 brings us exclusive footage from Boris and Carrie's secret wedding, the truth behind the historic summit between Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin and the real secret of Andy Murray's success.

    We hear tips from Michael Moseley on how to stay healthy in post-pandemic Britain, Liz Truss shares the details of her latest whizzo trade deals and Sir Chris Whitty reveals what it's really been like working with Boris Johnson. And as the Euros kick off, a virulent case of optimism sweeps the England squad.

    The world of TV takes an unexpected turn, as Keir Starmer shows the nation his Ramsay MacDonald in Naked Attraction, Ted calls the Line of Duty detectives back together to figure out a better end to the series and Sean Bean learns the harsh rules for surviving a Jimmy McGovern drama. Plus, we meet some surprising new contestants in Love Island...

    To top it all off, there are also three fantastic festive specials, in which a host of politicians, media pundits and celebrities are given a Christmas roasting - with lashings of satirical gravy.
