Hot Gossip is a show in which professionally witty, catty and clever 'gossip-mongers' compete to have the hottest gossip. There are no teams - it's every girl/boy for themselves.

The cat fight is controlled by the host, Claudia Winkleman (Sara Cox for Series 4, filling in for a pregnant Winkleman who doctors say must rest).

The questions do not require a factual answer, they simply act as spring boards for players to unleash a stream of caustic, witty and often slightly unhinged opinion. After each player has let loose, the host decides which one she deems to be the funniest.

Set in a sumptuous salon, the show's series of regular rounds include 'Where's My Line', 'Three In A Bed' and 'Ask A Stupid Question'.
