Review

Ah, Des O’Connor. Indefatigable crooner, Morecambe and Wise foil, chat-show host and borderline national treasure. Who knew he’s daft enough to eat cat food by accident? Or is he? Maybe his long, peculiar story about how he dined on this strange dish in a holiday villa is all nonsense.

O’Connor, looking as bronzed as a 70s sideboard, is a game contestant on Lee Mack’s team, and quickly gets into the spirit of the show after a giggly start. Meanwhile, on David Mitchell’s team, Rhod Gilbert regales us with an account of the acute trauma he suffered at an airport.

And comic actress Sally Phillips (Smack the Pony, Miranda) apparently plays a texting-game with her husband while he’s at the swimming baths. Worse, she once rode her uncle’s mobility scooter with disastrous consequences. Perhaps. It’s a great show, and
what Friday nights are for.

Summary

Team captain David Mitchell is joined by comedian Rhod Gilbert and actress Sally Phillips, while his counterpart Lee Mack welcomes TV presenters Des O'Connor and Tess Daly. Host Rob Brydon oversees proceedings as the contestants try to hoodwink their opponents with absurd facts and plausible lies about themselves on the comedy panel show.
