TV/Online Review: Starstruck, BBC Three/BBC One

One of the first times I saw Rose Matafeo was in 2017 when she did an Edinburgh show entitled Sassy Best Friend, about the movie cliche of the romantic female lead usually having a wisecracking sidekick. Matafeo self-deprecatingly saw herself in this role but now graduates from sidekick to top of the bill in this excellent new TV romcom - all six episodes are now available in a boxed set. Why not watch them back-to-back and pretend it's a movie?
