Al Murray - aka The Pub Landlord - introduces Compete For The Meat - a game show like no other.

Based on Al Murray's Edinburgh Fringe show, it's a pub quiz with Pub Landlord Rules. The general knowledge of contestants is checked, and they have a chance to win low-quality food prizes in the process.

The, ahem, 'steaks' are high as the Guv'nor asks the questions to four teams of two, who play for the honour of taking home a frozen chicken and the accolade of being slightly smarter than the competition. Runners-up can expect to walk away with sausages, while the only thing the losing team can look forward to is a Slow Walk of Shame.
