Box set containing all 31 episodes of the spoof chat show, including the pilot and the Christmas Specials. Starring BAFTA-winning comedienne, Caroline Aherne ('The Royle Family'), this highly successful and multiple award-winning show saw a host of celebrities queuing up to be interviewed by Aherne (in extensive makeup) as the barbed, octogenarian pensioner chat-show host with a penchant for double-entendres and rude questions delivered in a seemingly innocent tone. Amongst Mrs Merton's brave guests are Steve Coogan, Ant and Dec, Rolf Harris, Michael Parkinson, Peter Stringfellow, Vinnie Jones and even Hollywood legend, Tony Curtis, along with many others. Co-writer and fellow Royle Family actor, Craig Cash, appears as Mrs Merton's son, Malcolm.
