‘Every episode of Grand Designs’ absolutely nails the show’s not-so-secret formula

Stand-up comedian, Simon Caine – @thismademecool, on Twitter – has clearly not spent the pandemic twiddling his thumbs while he waited for gigs to happen again, because he’s produced a raft of funny sketches to keep people entertained.

He touched on the coronavirus. Not literally – or if he did, we’re sure he washed his hands.

But he also turned his biting wit on that crucial lockdown lifeline – the telly.

Simon says – Grand Designs is a bit formulaic.
