Description

John Linehan's famous alter-ego, May McFettridge entertains a live UTV studio audience in Mayhem.

Relying upon audience interaction, the show comprises a number of regular segments: 'Crystal May' in which McFettridge divines the secrets of audience members. 'Make It With May', in which audience participants get hands-on, this week the task is pottery, this includes lots of laughter as the clay breaks in half and the spinning of the wheel gets too fast for Sandra to control!

The second half of the programme begins with 'May's Memories', here May recounts her holiday with Big Patricia and a series of comedic escapades.

In 'Pick-A-Punta' audience members Gillian and Tom take part in 'Big Patricia's Play'.
