Alexander Armstrong outdoes himself with his foodie-themed intro to Richard Osman: “He’s the man who puts the sage into sagacious, egg into egghead and cress into ‘ludicressly’ well read!”
The celebs are all food or wine experts (Jilly Goolden, Sophie Grigson and Tony Singh among them) but the rounds take no account of their profession until the head to head, when it’s all to do with cakes and puds. There are also questions on US states, sitcoms and famous Charlottes.
Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman present another `food and drink' themed edition of unorthodox general knowledge quiz. Jilly Goolden teams up with fellow wine expert Olly Smith, while cookery writer Sophie Grigson partners chef and businessman Michael Caines. Restaurant critic Fay Maschler and Taste of Britain chef Brian Turner join forces, while Cyrus Todiwala and Tony Singh - who joined forces in the show's last culinary special - are reunited for another chance to come up with unlikely correct answers for Alexander's questions.
