Enjoying The Spotlight...

Curled in up bed, Eleanor binge-watches true crime, completely insulated from the actual crime outside her door.

The gap between what she could be doing and what she is doing has never been bigger. But her smartphone is about to be stolen and then she'll find that the real world can mock us far more savagely than any online fantasy.

Join Tiernan, BBC Newsquiz, Alternative Comedy Experience, in an exploration of what, if any, satisfaction can be found and whether she's willing to endure the requisite amount of discomfort to get it.
