One Person Found This Helpful

A BBC Radio 4 Comedy Panel Game


Frank Skinner hosts the series where a celebrity panel delve into the bizarre world of online shopping

Everyone has an online life, and when the great British public put pen to keyboard to leave a review, they almost always write something hilarious. One Person Found This Helpful is the panel game that invites an all-star line-up to celebrate the good, the bad and the baffling.

Over the course of six episodes, the celebrity guests are presented with a selection of hilarious reviews and tasked with working out what exactly is being described. Maybe they'll even have a go at writing their own reviews along the way... So if you’re the person who went on Trip Advisor to review Ben Nevis as ‘Very steep and too high’, this show salutes you!

In the first episode of the series, Frank and the team find out what you think about mead, Poirot and a stinky brontosaurus. With guests Simon Evans, Jessica Fostekew, Amy Gledhill and Ahir Shah.

In Episode Two, we discover what you, the public, said about a dodgy snow globe and a risky waffle. Frank is joined by guests Desiree Burch, Simon Evans, Kerry Godliman and Andrew Maxwell.

In the third episode, Frank and the team hear what you said about a sparkly tower, the M1 and some hot lava. The guests are Sara Barron, Marcus Brigstocke, Pierre Novellie and Laura Smyth.

In Episode Four, we get your views on lemons, sharks and a very painful ladder. Frank is joined by guests Catherine Bohart, Daliso Chaponda, Shaparak Khorsandi and Ian Smith.

In the fifth episode, Frank and the team find out what you thought about a scenic fishfinger and a wobbly cupcake. With guests Scott Bennett, Jo Caulfield, Simon Evans and Esther Manito.

And finally in Episode Six, we discover what the world had to say about sharp carpets and a keg with a difference. Frank is joined by guests Simon Evans, Ania Magliano, Sunil Patel and Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

About the authors

Frank Skinner

Frank Skinner performed his first stand-up gig in December 1987, and four years later went on to win the prestigious Perrier Award. During the 1990s Frank established himself as a major name in entertainment - both in live comedy and on television. In 1994 and 1997 he sold-out two UK tours, the second of which culminated in a performance at London's Battersea Power Station - what was then the largest ever audience for stand-up comedy in the UK. On television, Frank has created and starred in a succession of hit comedy shows, including nine series of The Frank Skinner Show from 1995 to 2005; and with his comedy partner David Baddiel, Fantasy Football (1994 - 2004), and Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned (2000 - 2005).

As well as live stand-up and television, Frank has attained three number one hits with the iconic football anthem 'Three Lions' alongside David Baddiel and the Lightning Seeds. He has starred in the West End in both Art and Lee Hall's Cooking with Elvis; and his critically acclaimed first book Frank Skinner was the bestselling autobiography of 2002, spending a total of 46 weeks in the Sunday Times bestsellers' list. In 2006 Baddiel and Skinner's World Cup podcasts caused an online sensation with over one million downloads leading to yet another number one chart hit.

In 2007 Frank Skinner returned to stand-up with another sell-out tour of the UK.

Frank currently divides his time between London and Birmingham - and, of course, his beloved West Brom.
