The two shows featured Paul Merton, Gyles Brandreth and Sue Perkins with debutant Frank Skinner doing the first show and Josie Long on the second (she did one show in 2009 in Clement Freud’s last series).
I know they’ve been trying to get Frank Skinner on for a while and it sounds like he was good fun. One of these shows will be on air on Monday.
