Duck Quacks Don't Echo

Lee Mack is back to test more facts in a humourous way. Trouser measurements, invincible eggs and tickle-blocking are three of the topics up for analysis. Davina McCall, Paddy McGuinness and Stephen Mangan are the guests helping to test things out. McCall is roped in to test whether you can lift a person off the ground using helium balloons - see the preview video in our guide for that answer. It's worth noting that Series 2 is now in a family-friendly time slot - Mack is great at this sort of thing. Sky1, 8pm. Guide

Also: Virtually Famous, and repeats like Uncle. Schedule
