Episode 2: Olivia Colman, Rhod Gilbert and Paul Hollywood

Summary

Lee Mack hosts the comedy panel game, inviting actress Olivia Colman, funnyman Rhod Gilbert and baking king Paul Hollywood to come up with more amazing trivia. Facts in this edition include - a shrimp is fitter than the average human being, a person can scale a wall using vacuum cleaners and a pet dog can `catch' its owner's yawns.

Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

You've tittered at QI. You've guffawed at Would I Lie to You? So how will your sides cope with a brazen fusion of both formats? 

That's obviously the thinking behind this derivative panel show, in which Lee Mack asks a team of celebrity guests to provide hard evidence for their seemingly outlandish claims. This week's unlikely facts include: dogs can "catch" their owners' yawns; shrimps are fitter than humans; and an adult male will never be shorter than his mother.

Padded out with pop-science facts, whimsical practical tests and based in a weirdly cramped, overly busy set – it looks like it's filmed in a stationary drawer – it has the whiff of a project cobbled together during a busy executive lunch. But it passes the time affably.

Mack's guests are Olivia Colman, Rhod Gilbert and Paul Hollywood, who gamely leaves his Bake Off comfort zone to see if it's possible to scale a wall using household vacuum cleaners.
