Would I Lie to You?

Series 5 - Episode 1

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

A fantastically imperious Nick Hewer, The Apprentice’s gimlet-eyed hard-man, almost steals the show in a new run of the reliably funny Would I Lie to You? by being frightening. So frightening that you really want to believe everything he says, such as about the time he emailed everyone in his address book a picture of his big toe, and how he plays ping pong with Lord Sugar.

It’s an uproarious first episode, with much helpless laughter from Miranda Hart and an unusually abandoned team captain David Mitchell. Super Lee Mack (The Funniest Man on Television © Me) returns, and the guests roster is completed by Jack Whitehall and Rebecca Front.
