TVToday: REALITY THE ARMSTRONGS BBC2, 10pm.
FILMING this series must have been a bit like drilling for oil and finding a diamond mine as well. U-Fit boss John Armstrong with his Napoleonic delusions and bicycle metaphors - plus his effervescently mad wife Ann - are more comedy than most series can handle.
But then they hired Michael - who turned out to be a champion in the world's most unlikely sounding online board game, called Othello. And tonight, in a scene that all the comedy writers in the world couldn't have dreamed up, not even with the help of mind-expanding drugs, we meet Michael's lovely wife when, in an uncharacteristic spasm of generosity, John and Ann decide to take them out to dinner.
On top of this, Ann is pregnant and choosing baby names. I've got a tenner on Stretch.
