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'.

Broadcaster and campaigner Esther Rantzen takes on sports journalist and broadcaster John Inverdale.

The rules are simple - contestants must match their answer to the one given by a text answering service. Questions range from 'What's the bendiest road in Britain?' to 'Can a dog hold a microphone?'.

In the cunning physical challenge which pits the contestants against each other, Esther and John compete in a name-dropping contest - literally. Show less
