Grease Night on Channel 4 was supposed to be an extravaganza of 1950s dancing, singing and comedy japes.
In the run-up people were really looking forward to it, especially as we had the actual movie to whet our appetites beforehand.
Unfortunately, a less-than-excited audience, bad camera work and having almost nothing to do with the movie Grease made everything, well, a bit odd.

Why have they called it Alan Carr's #GreaseNight when it's nothing to do with Grease? How about being called "50's Night?" ??

Fronted by chatty man Alan Carr and fellow comedian Katherine Ryan, the show - which included four couples battling it out for the title of Prom King and Queen and some tongue-in-cheek 1950s advices videos - was broadcast live.
Maybe it shouldn't have been.
Is anybody else watching #GreaseNight ...
Never have I such a sorry affair live on tv

We felt sorry for poor Didi Conn, AKA Frenchie, for having to take part.

This guy thought we should just end it all, that silence and a blank screen would be better.
In the states they sometimes pull shows half way through. Feel free Channel 4 #GreaseNight

Some people - not many - did enjoy it though.
Best Saturday night I've had in a while #GreaseNight

Nevertheless, we all unanimously agreed that the studio desperately needed some air conditioning - poor Alan was boiling alive!

Alan's leather jacket was quickly removed for comfort over authenticity, and everyone was pleased for his safety.
All in all, not a successful night.
