Episode 8: Medicine

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC FourLatest broadcast: on BBC Four

Anarchic comedy game show in which celebrity guests answer questions set by the public.

Mark Watson hosts, Tim Key is in the questionmaster's chair and Alex Horne provides expert analysis from a booth as two celebrities battle it out to be crowned the winner and avoid the shame of donning 'The Clogs of Defeat'.

Comedienne and broadcaster Sue Perkins competes against television doctor Phil Hammond.

The rules are simple - contestants must match their answer to the one given by a text answering service. Questions can range from 'Name the seven different ways to cook an egg?' to 'What would happen if I bellyflopped off Dartmouth Bridge?'.

In the cunning physical challenge which pits the contestants against each other, Sue and Phil find out if it's possible to eat, think and move at the same time - cue spinning chairs, yoghurt and a word search. Show less
