The ever-dry Rhod Gilbert don's a set of oilies to test his mettle at sea



Comedian Rhod Gilbert is back doing proper jobs and the series starts with him taking on one of the most dangerous jobs in Britain. As a deep sea fisherman he faces fish that must be disembowelled, sea sickness, a very irritated skipper and he has to get up early. In the battle of the seas - flatfish versus stand-up - there can be only one winner.

Just as well it was a flat calm for the duration of the trip!

There's a few more weeks left to watch this from the comfort of the BBC iPlayer
