Rating: 4 out of 5.

If someone asked you for your “cutest thing”, what would you offer? A basket of kittens... A picture of a fluffy newborn penguin waddling to its mother... Or tiny alpacas nuzzling noses? Apparently my grasp on the concept of cute doesn’t extend beyond baby animals, as I just lost myself in a 50-minute vortex of piglet clips on YouTube. Anyway, that's the first task this week, and kudos to Lolly Adefope, whose winning submission is a photo of herself as a baby. I'd have done the same.

As ever, the tasks are by turns rambunctious and puerile - and charmingly so - but what makes me laugh the most are Greg Davies's dismissive, cynical, cutting asides and his total lack of patience with this daft programme, or indeed his fellow comedians.
