Diane Morgan Guest Stars in Inside No.9

Funny Women

Funny Women

2006 Funny Women Awards finalist Diane Morgan is starring in tonight’s episode of Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s very dark comic series Inside No. 9. Morgan plays ditsy Donna, who regularly puts her foot in her mouth.

Donna joins her new boyfriend Darren on a pedalo trip in a reunion with Darren’s uni mates, Callum and Laurence. The episode will see a mini League of Gentlemen reunion with Mark Gattiss joining the cast. As with all Inside No. 9 episodes, nothing goes to plan as the pedalo is stranded and the conversation is far from merry.

In future episodes of the anthology series guest stars include Daisy Haggard and Sophie Okonedo.

You can watch Inside No.9: Merrily, Merrily tonight on BBC 2 at 10pm
