Jack Whitehall is on a roll. His performance as feckless toff JP in Fresh Meat is a galloping comic tour de force. His sitcom-writing debut, Bad Education, was well received. His national stand-up tour has just come out on DVD in time for the Christmas gold rush. And now here he is guest hosting Britain’s top panel show at the grand old age of 23.

By way of counterweight, one of tonight’s guests will be the formidable and funny Baroness Trumpington, at 90 the oldest guest ever to appear in the series. Her career has stretched from Bletchley Park via a spell as mayor of Cambridge to a notorious V-sign caught on camera during an altercation in the House of Lords. Apprentice lemon-sucker Nick Hewer makes up the numbers.


Jack Whitehall guest-hosts the satirical quiz, with Countdown presenter Nick Hewer and Conservative peer Baroness Trumpington joining team captains Paul Merton and Ian Hislop to poke fun at the week's news.
