It’s ten years since Angus Deayton made his hurried departure from the HIGNFY host’s chair, since when 84 different bottoms have perched there, including those of MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace and John Torode, the only double act to share the job, two knights (Sir Bruce Forsyth and Sir Trevor McDonald), two OBEs (Joan Collins and Moira Stuart) and one intergalactic space traveller.
In this anniversary edition, Homeland’s Damian Lewis takes the hot seat for the fifth time – obviously hoping to challenge Alexander Armstrong’s record of 20 – and, judging by his earlier outings, he’ll deliver the scripted lines with exquisite timing and charm. Tonight’s guests are Harry Shearer and Nigel Farage.
The comedy news quiz celebrates a historic landmark - 10 years since the first guest host took the hot seat following Angus Deayton's departure in October 2002 - a `short-term' experiment that has endured to this day. Anne Robinson was the first on Friday, November 8 (not counting a one-off stand-in hosting appearance by team captain Paul Merton), since when there have been 84 different presenters. Tonight sees Homeland actor Damian Lewis in the chair for a fifth time, while Merton and partner-in-mirth Ian Hislop are joined by Spinal Tap and Simpsons actor Harry Shearer and UKIP leader Nigel Farage, hoping to wring as many laughs as they can from the week's headlines.
