Alexander Armstrong's Big Ask is a panel show designed to challenge Britain's wittiest people to work harder. Host Alexander Armstrong not only wants his guests to answer questions on the topics of his choosing, he needs them to make up the questions too. The aim being to devise a question that only they know the answer to, and the other panellists won't.

The show covers topics as varied as Shakespeare, magic, weddings and the Bible.

During Series 1, Come Dine With Me voiceover man and comedian Dave Lamb sat in his very own 'fact bunker' dishing out fun factoids and extra helpings of trivia.

Guests on Series 2 will include Jack Whitehall, Marcus Brigstocke, Ed Byrne, Rebecca Front, Andrew Maxwell, Phil Jupitus, Jo Brand, Russell Kane, Susan Calman, Tim Vine, Jason Manford and Sandi Toksvig.
