PREVIEW: Friday Night Dinner - 10 Years And A Lovely Bit Of Squirrel, Channel 4

At 10pm on a Friday back in 2011, the great British nation were introduced to a hairy topless man who liked to chomp his way through a 'lovely bit of squirrel'.

This one-off documentary celebrates the 10-year anniversary of Robert Popper's iconic comedy, Friday Night Dinner, which gave us that infamous catchphrase, as well as the wonderfully eccentric Goodman family and their even more surreal neighbour Jim, who together have become the heart of one of Channel 4's most popular sitcoms of all time.

With exclusive behind-the-scenes material and never-before-seen outtakes, the documentary features some of the funniest Friday Night Dinner moments of the past decade, as well as exclusive interviews with the cast, crew and guest stars, including Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal, Mark Heap, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Robert Popper.

And a host of celebrity fans who love to share their Friday nights with the beloved Jewish family from north London - including Claudia Winkleman, Joe Thomas, David Baddiel and Jessica Hynes - reveal their favourite moments from the show's six series.

Friday Night Dinner - 10 Years And A Lovely Bit Of Squirrel airs Friday 28th May at 9pm on Channel 4.
