SOUTH Shields comic Sarah Millican is not a control freak, but a control enthusiast who even controls her own insults in her new show in 2018.

After two sold-out performances of her Outsider show last September, Millican will return to York Barbican to present Sarah Millican: Control Enthusiast on November 9 and 10 next year.

"Do you arrange the nights out? Are you in charge of passports on holiday?" she asks, seeking to spot fellow control enthusiasts. "Whether you’re sorting the tickets for this show or turning up when you’re told to, welcome. You’ll learn about Rescue Men, what can happen at a bra fitting, the benefits of casserole, plus tips on how to talk to shop assistants and the correct way to eat a biscuit."

Tickets for Millican's "funny, frank and unapologetically filthy" gigs are on sale at £30 on 0844 857 2757, at or in person from the Barbican box office.
