From confusion over eye conditions to an attempt to proposition Robert Lindsay, here's your weekly guide to all the highlights from the Late Night Alternative with Iain Lee.


Myopia or youropia?

A caller calling up to talk about her eye condition caused confusion on the show.

Caller Jasmine said she was working on trying to cure her condition, myopia, which causes short-sightedness.

"Tell me again about your opia?" Iain said.

"Myopia," caller Jasmine said.

"So others have different opias?" Iain replied.


Britney Spears

Iain made a plea to Britney Spears to get in touch with him, hoping the video would go viral and catch the attention of the popstar.

"Britney Spears, give me a chance," he said.

"I think you and I could have a great time intellectually talking about books and about time travel and philosophy and music."

He said he would be happy to replace co-presenter, Katherine Boyle, if things went well with Ms Spears.


Robert Lindsay

In another attempt to have a brush with a famous face, recently divorced Iain propositioned the actor Robert Lindsay.

"I think I would like to try some things I've never really got around to trying, and I think I'd like to try them with you," Iain said.

"Forget anything you might have seen about me wanting to go out with Britney Spears, that was just a little bit of nonsense. This is real."
