Actor, comedian and broadcaster Stephen Mangan presents a new comedy chat show about shame and guilt for BBC Radio 4.
We’re used to hearing celebrity interviews, where stars are persuaded to show off about their achievements and talk about their proudest moments. Stephen is not interested in that. He doesn’t want to know what his guests are proud of, he wants to know what they’re ashamed of. That’s surely the way to find out what really makes a person tick.
Here, in a half hour of wit, hilarity and toe-curling revelation, he takes the confession of award-winning theatre, TV and film star David Tennant.
Tennant’s three stories of embarrassment and shame – that he’s carried around in secret for years – are put under the microscope and awarded appropriate penances, so that he can leave feeling guilt free.
The Confessional with David Tennant will premiere on Thursday 4th February at 11pm on BBC Radio 4
