Take it away, SImon.

Deliveroo: “Simon Rimmer” - 60s

"We all know someone who deserves a pat on the back for doing something amazing," says Simon Rimmer, as we nod in agreement, "and it's not often we get the chance to give it them." Yep. No argument with that. "And what better way to celebrate someone than with a Deliveroo feast?" Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Back up, pal! What did you just say? There are many, many ways we could decide to celebrate an unsung hero before we arrive at the conclusion that the best shout is 'takeaway meal delivered by a cycling tortoise'.

The nature of the treat may be arguable but the film's heart is in the right place and Rimmer has enough sincerity to make it feel right. Plus, Deliveroo's investment is made worthwhile by some food photography which may have the viewer hankering for a filthy takeaway.
