Standing the test of time: Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd in 'Back to the Future'

Can Secret Cinema sell 80,000 'Back to the Future' tickets?

Noel Fielding is standing, dressed in an apron, on the set of his E4 show. A bijou Hawaiian coffee shop has been meticulously re-created inside a vast warehouse at Three Mills Studio and as we watch from behind the monitor, the show's star, in character as the proprietor of the Luxury Coffee Shop on the side of a volcano, breaks off from the action, turns to camera and attempts to explain the plot of the episode thus far: "OK, so let's get this straight. Because I chose to set the coffee shop in Hawaii on the edge of a volcano, I now have to sacrifice one of my characters to the volcano. Otherwise, the locals, who are the cast of Magnum PI, will sacrifice me. I mean, who wrote this?" Welcome to the freaky world of Noel Fielding.
