“You can’t send him out there! What if he eats a celebrity?” It’s the kind of line you could only hear on this surreal, stupidly funny show. Bespectacled music expert Eddie and hard man Jake have been hiking in the mountains and only Jake has come back, prompting rampant rumours backstage that the Aussie has turned cannibal (the real reason turns out to be madder, and funnier). The show is at its best when these backstage sections get out of hand, but they’re always cut short by the need to return to the games, this week involving Shane Richie and Claudia Winkleman. They’re good sports, but when you’ve seen Punch Your Lights Out with three different sets of guests, it starts to lose its twinkle.


EastEnders star Shane Richie and TV presenter Claudia Winkleman compete in a series of challenges featuring sunbathing hotdogs and cheeky Essex birds, with the winner receiving £10,000 for their chosen charity. There's also the usual peek backstage at what the puppets are getting up to as one of the experts goes missing.
