Synopsis

Minor celebrities (on one episode Lulu, Michael Praed, and Austin Mitchell) are gently quizzed to reveal minor skeletons in their closets.

In the first round, each celeb is introduced with a film containing five fascinating facts about the guests. But - lorks! - two of the statements are not true. The other two celebs can pick up points by pointing out the porkies.

Next, we look at some of the highlights and lowlights of each celeb's career. Steve asks them follow-up questions for additional points.

Finally, each celeb gets a one-minute specialist subject round of their own choosing. For no apparent reason.

With the experienced Wrighty at the helm, it's an affable enough half hour. But even he can't mask the fact that the format's paper-thin.

Inventor

By arrangement with Atticus Television Ltd.

Theme music

A cover of 'Fiesta' by The Pogues, arranged by Philip Pope.
