Review

Growly Alastair Campbell, former Downing Street director of communications and strategy, diarist, Burnley supporter and ebullient Tweeter, chairs for the first time. So expect lots of needling from Ian Hislop, who’ll doubtless have something to say about Campbell’s appearances before the Leveson Inquiry (he’s the first of tonight’s Leveson alumni; Steve Coogan turns up on Graham Norton).

But the big question is will Campbell have the skill to rein in guest panellist, big, loud hirsute Ross Noble, who tends to overwhelm any panel show he’s on if he’s not kept in order? Returning to the show is Lord Sugar’s flint-eyed right-hand man, and Countdown host, Nick Hewer.

Summary

Journalist and broadcaster Alastair Campbell guest-hosts the satirical current affairs quiz, with regular team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton joined by celebrity panellists to poke fun at the week's news.
