Zo's episode of cult hit Inside No. 9 comes to BBC2 on 30 January

'And the Winner Is...', the episode of cult comedy-drama Inside No. 9 in which Zo guest stars, will be broadcast on 30 January (BBC2, 10pm). The show finds Zo's character Paula (pictured above) on the judging panel for a prestigious acting awards ceremony. 'Will it be the star, the dame, the girl-next-door or the ingenue? Only one of them can win. Join the jury in their deliberations for the Television Awards,' says the BBC in its tantalisingly brief summary.

If you've watched Inside No. 9 before, you'll know that an eye-catching, cinema-style poster is designed to accompany each episode. Here's the poster for 'And the Winner Is...', designed by Andy Bottomley and shared on Twitter by Reece Shearsmith, who created, writes and stars in Inside No. 9 alongside the equally multi-talented Steve Pemberton.

The clips released so far (one on YouTube and another on the BBC's website) suggest that the episode will be a real treat - satirical, funny and sharply observed.

As TV & Satellite Week explains, Paula is 'an old-school American actress [...] who has no idea who any of the nominees are'! Noel Clarke, who plays director Gordon, the judging panel's voice of reason, told the magazine, 'I've met quite a few people like Zo's character - she's not so over the top, those people are out there!'

While there's tension between the judges, the atmosphere between the cast members during filming was much more relaxed. 'We were definitely laughing a lot,' Clarke emphasises. 'I'm sure they could do a good half-hour of outtakes with us cracking up. It was a fun few days for everyone in the room.'
