Sh*te of the highest order, I'm afraid. With this sort of character based comedy it's difficult sometimes to put your finger on what makes one show funny and another not. This show appears to have similar ingredients to Little Britain; short, off-the-wall caricatures that aren't always immediately funny, but can grow on you. In Little Britain the charm and talent of the performers pull it off, but unfortunately the whole package seems to fail on Little Miss Jocelyn; unfunny sketches performed in an over-the-top gurning fashion left me cringing at the embarrassment of it all. And the BBC hasn't helped by trailing it Ad Nauseam with some of the most excruciating snippets from the show. Who commissions this stuff? It will be a looong time before I can forget this unfortunate experience...
