Christian O'Connell fronted this 15 part live topical news comedy programme on Sunday mornings on Five Live.

Each week, Christian sought to solve the week's big news issues. He was joined by Bob Mills and special guests to put right some of the world's biggest (and smallest) wrongs in just one hour.

O'Connell said at the time: "I'm really excited to be returning to 5 Live. I miss doing Fighting Talk and often find myself mumbling half baked opinions to myself at the weekend - now I can find a home for these. I'm looking to help build a show from scratch with the right team, from developing it over the next few months to getting it on air each Sunday. I'm going to create a show that like Fighting Talk is unique, smart, compelling and funny."
