Where's The F In News is an energetic and intelligent female-anchored show, hosted by Have I Got News For You series producer Jo Bunting. The predominantly female panel use the events, trends and talking points that they think should be top of the news agenda as a starting point for a number of fresh and funny challenges.

Jo Bunting says: "Apparently if a woman speaks in a meeting for 50 percent of the time a man speaks, he genuinely thinks she's spoken the exact same amount as he has. When I read that, I thought 'how can I really annoy that man?' So I've created a show featuring a shedload of intelligent and funny women."
