Trivia

In September 2016, midway through the show's seventh series, it was announced that this series would be the last to air on the BBC, after rival broadcaster Channel 4 "poached" the series. The day after the announcement, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins announced they would not move to Channel 4 with the show, and would be stepping down. See more »

How is this the UK's most popular TV show?!
17 April 2017 | by (Essex) – See all my reviews

This has the highest viewing figures of all television shows in the UK

  • and I can't understand why.


This show is boring, none of the people on it are interesting and its attempts at humour are just pathetic, childish innuendo. There's nothing about this show that I like.
