Terry Wogan hosts a new comedy quiz game in which contestants attempt to match their 'blanks' with six guest celebrities.
A game all the family can play at home - a game with no right or wrong answers - a simple formula which relies on everyone to be witty with words.
A sentence with a word missing (the blank) is read out. The contestant fills in the missing word. If it matches any of the words chosen by the celebrity panel a point is gained per match.
by CARLA LANB starring Wendy Craig as Ria and Geoffrey Palmer as Ben
It is time for Ria to break away from the family, but as the provider Ben's ego is at stake, so the tug-of-war begins.
