Hor­ri­ble His­to­ries

TV Times - - Monday -

Chil­dren’s / 5.25pm / CBBC

Ridicu­lous Ro­man­tics looks at the way peo­ple have found love through­out his­tory, from con­jur­ing up a de­mon in medieval Bavaria to Casanova’s con­quests (il­lus­trated by a typ­i­cal song: ‘He’s well lush and he know it’). But the star of this show is Henry VIII, who re­turns – and re­turns, and re­turns – to find a wife at the His­tor­i­cal First Dates res­tau­rant (even maître d’ Fred Sirieix gives up in de­s­pair). Hor­ri­ble His­to­ries con­tin­ues to be en­ter­tain­ing for kids and adults alike, with good jokes and songs – and, yes, that’s Game of Thrones’ Gemma Whe­lan as Anne Bo­leyn and San­jeev Bhaskar as Mughal em­peror Shah Ja­han!
