Review

You have to admire the confidence of the duff singers in this series. On they strut with a mic in hand and proceed to grapple their song to the ground like an opponent at Wrestlemania. It really is a sight (and sound) to behold. “Celebrity Investigator” Jimmy Carr, meanwhile, vies for supremacy with host Paddy McGuinness - as on the Blankety Blank revival at Christmas, it seems that Carr would much rather be presenting than commenting from the sidelines.

But both guys ought to be watching their backs because panellist Alison Hammond is making the best job of sorting the soulful from the woeful. She really should be front and centre on her own show.

Summary

New series. Stephen Mulhern is in Sheffield as he returns with the game show in which he travels around the UK setting members of the public unusual challenges, giving them the chance to win anything from the price of their petrol to £1,000 in the final game.
