Further details

8 Out of 10 Cats is back for an incredible ninth series. The cheeky comedy panel series sets out to predict and analyse what the almighty British public thinks about the week's most talked about subjects.

Presenter and stand up comic Jimmy Carr takes the centre chair and is joined by witty team captains Sean Lock and Jason Manford.

Alongside them are panellists from the world of comedy, entertainment and showbiz. This edition's guests include Claudia Winkleman and Jamelia.

Each team thrashes out the topics of the week by examining surveys, opinion polls and statistics; discussing all that is silly and serious. Potential subjects could include showbiz gossip, world politics and even the weather. Can the team captains reach the same conclusions as the public... and most importantly, who will give the funniest answers?
