*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This was part of the long night of entertainment for Comic Relief 2005. Angus Deayton hosted the special celebrity edition of University Challenge. The guests that appeared in this show were Smack the Pony's Sarah Alexander, Lenny Henry in Pieces' Omid Djalili, Stephen Fry, movie star Hugh Grant, Men Behaving Badly's Neil Morrissey, Colin Murray and The Fast Show's John Thomson. Basically they just played it like University Challenge, except they added comedy humour to it, since it was Comic Relief. It was Armando Iannucci's team that won, Neil Morrissey I remember was very disappointed. Outstanding comedy entertainment as part of Comic Relief 2005!
