The Supersizers Go...

About the Show

About the Show

Writer and restaurant critic Giles Coren, who has a love of good food, and writer and comedian Sue Perkins, who is a lover of cabbage and carrots, are about to supersize their way through the cuisine of seven different eras in Britain's history – Wartime, Restoration, Victorian, Seventies, Elizabethan, Regency and Edwardian – in this new series. Resplendent in period costume, Sue and Giles bring history alive with wit, humour and the occasional burp. Each week, a renowned chef is on hand to feed them the culinary treats of the age – such as sheep's head, coxcombs and eel – all washed down with copious amounts of beer, wine and hippocras. Experts are on hand to explain the social behaviour and rituals of people from the seven eras, and Giles and Sue undergo medical testing after each diet to determine the impact of the cuisine and lifestyle on their health.

I also love this show! There are a few missed episodes I would like to catch up with. Do you know if/when it will be airing again?
