Rob Beckett impersonates Jordan Banjo

Rob Beckett impersonates I'm A Celebrity star and street dancer Jordan Banjo.

Featuring: Rob Beckett.


The lowbrow HIGNFY has a new guise these days. Rejuvenated teams seem to be at the root of this - goodnight Sean Lock, who remains on the Countdown version of the show - but with Jimmy Carr remaining, unsympathetically as ever, in charge. Rob Beckett and Aisling Bea now captain the teams as the panel roam ineptly among the week's most popular news items. Tonight's guests are Thomas Turgoose and First Dates maître d' Fred Sirieix.
