In a Sydney Morning Herald review of Walliams and Friend, Ben Pobjie wrote On the odd occasion – a neat boy-band piece, a shamelessly silly slice of Great British Bake Off erotic fan fiction – the show fires up, but the trend is more towards thin concepts barely propped up by the star power of Walliams and his big-name partner.
