Television: One to watch - The Security Men (ITV, Friday, April 12, 9pm)

What’s It All About? The Fattest Man in Britain writers Caroline Aherne and Joe Pope reunite for this new one-off comedy about a group of layabout security guards working the nightshift at a fictional Manchester shopping centre.

The first episode sees them desperate to watch a televised boxing match, and think they’ve worked out a way to make it possible - if they switch off the alarms they can enter an electrical store and simply watch the bout on one of its big-screen, surround-sound, state-of-the-art TVs.

What can possibly go wrong? Well, as you may have guessed, an awful lot...

Look Out For: The cast. Bobby Ball and Brendan O’Carroll, who also appeared in The Fattest Man... feature here too, alongside Paddy McGuinness, Peter Wight and Dean Andrews.

ITV’s director of entertainment and comedy Elaine Bedell says: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Caroline and Jeff, two writers at the top of their game. I’m a huge fan of both and believe together they have created some of the best comedy scripts for television.”
