The show returns for a new run this week, and fortunately there has been a wealth of news stories recently - giving guest host Jennifer Saunders plenty to go on as she quizzes team captains Paul Merton and Ian Hislop, along with their guest panellists, on recent events. Appearing this week are Scottish satirist, writer, television director and radio producer Armando Iannucci, and British Conservative Party politician Peter Bone MP.
