Grin and bear it!

Cub reporter Ed goes un­der­cover as a po­lar bear…

What's on TV - - Tv Week -

Ed Wash­burn’s first job at The Post was to ‘death knock’ the be­reaved par­ents of a foot­baller who’d com­mit­ted sui­cide. His sec­ond was to go back and tell them their late son was gay, and write a story about how they ‘never knew him’.

In this week’s episode of Press, he has to dress up as a po­lar bear, go to a celebrity party and try to get some dirt on celebs be­hav­ing badly.

Oxbridge grad­u­ate Ed is also busy avoid­ing phone calls from his mum, who doesn’t know what his new job is. And he’s nar­rowly avoided a drunken fling with Holly (Char­lotte Ri­ley), deputy news edi­tor at The Her­ald.

‘He’s thrust into the snake pit!’ laughs Paapa Essiedu, who plays Ed. ‘He en­ters this world alone – with­out his par­ents or much money and he’s sleep­ing on peo­ple’s sofas.’
