Ashmawy said: "After nearly six months of cruelly dragging my poor 71-year-old mother around the world, doing my bucket list of things she should do in her life, I'm so delighted to be coming home and launching 50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy at the Sky Cat Laughs festival.

"I've been going to the festival for years, and I honestly can't think of a better place to premiere our new series for Sky 1. I love the festival and we're both honoured to be part of it. It's the perfect place and atmosphere to share our new series. We can't wait."
