Something from the Cellar: Animal Laughs

As we finally get to wave goodbye to the year's most notoriously miserable month and look forward to brighter days ahead, we’ve collected some of our favourite animal-related laughs to put a smile on your face as we shut the door on January!


From Will Mellor cremating the wrong family cat, to Alastair Campbell telling us how his daughter involved the former prime minister in her campaign to get a dog, to even - erm - making a duck orgasm like Craig Doyle, it’s all in a day's work!


You can listen back to these hilarious episodes in full here: Will Mellor, Alastair Campbell and Craig Doyle.
