Review

“I can’t believe you were fired from The Apprentice,” Richard Osman tells the hapless Solomon Akhtar, with his tongue wedged firmly in his cheek. Luckily Solomon is paired up with Ruth Badger, who frankly might have done better playing on her own.

It’s a reality star edition so Made in Chelsea, Big Brother and I’m a Celebrity are represented as well as The Apprentice. There are several moments of extraordinary stupidity (in the head-to-head round one team doesn’t even realise they’ve won) and what Osman calls “possibly the worst words round EVER!” But there’s another terrifically tense final.

Summary

Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman host a reality TV-themed edition of the general knowledge quiz, challenging four teams of famous faces to come up with the least likely correct answers to a series of questions posed to members of the public. The duos competing are former Apprentice contestants Ruth Badger and Solomon Akhtar, I'm A Celebrity 2014 survivors Carl Fogarty and Jimmy Bullard, Big Brother's first-ever winner Craig Phillips and series seven housemate Nikki Grahame, and Made in Chelsea stars Jamie Laing and Alex Mytton.
