Summary

What would Jonathan Agnew do if he wasn't a cricket commentator? Who would play Romesh Ranganathan in a film of his life? What's the naughtiest thing Sara Pascoe did as a child?

It's not what you know but who you know that matters...and, indeed, how well you know them. The show is a bit like ‘Mr and Mrs’, except that it's not played by husbands and wives. Instead, panellists can pick anyone they like: dad, cousin, best friend, mother-in-law. 

What is Bridget Christie's worst fear? Or Ainsley Harriott's worst habit? Or Seann Walsh's worst gig? 

All these burning questions, and more, will be answered in this BBC comedy panel show hosted by Miles Jupp, where panellists are tested on how well they know their nearest and dearest.

Get to know panellists such Rebecca Front, Roisin Conaty, Mark Steel, Tom Wrigglesworth, Ed Byrne, Tony Hawks, Rachel Riley, Richard Madeley, Dave Gorman, Lucy Porter, Richard Osman, Frankie Boyle, Susan Calman, Sara Cox, Katherine Ryan, Alan Johnson and Sarah Millican.

Produced by Sam Michell.

Great entertainment

Great entertainment- very funny and quite a few laugh out loud moments, ideal listening while walking the dog at night - not a euphemism.

Highly enjoyable for the most part.

Great idea for a game show. Miles Jupp is very quick witted and hilariously funny. It was all going so well until Joe Lycett took over. Then it quickly went from marvellous, clever and hugely entertaining to being bland and ordinary. Thankfully Jupp hosts the majority of the shows (the first 4 series?) so it’s definitely worth getting, but Lycett’s final series is very missable.
