The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year 2015

The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year returns as Jimmy Carr tests a panel of A List Celebrities to see who knows the most about 2015.

Further details

Who was described as a north London geek? Just what colour was that dress? And what on earth does 'Netflix and Chill' mean?

If you know some, all or even none of the above then help celebrate the end of 2015 as Jimmy challenges Rob Brydon, Sue Perkins, David Mitchell, Claudia Winkleman, Greg Davies and Jo Brand to battle for the coveted Big Fat Quiz crown.

Also helping Jimmy out along the way are the likes of Simon Pegg, Heston Blumenthal, Olly Murs, Rita Ora, Charles Dance and, of course, Jon Snow. So, put the post-Christmas diet on hold and join us for a festive helping of Big Fat Quiz Of The Year.

Jon Snow was the highlight of Big Fat Quiz

Jon Snow doing Drake's Hotline Bling dance was easily the highlight of Channel 4's Big Fat Quiz Of The Year.

Kate Goodacre, Digital Spy, 28th December 2015

Now every bit as much of a festive tradition as hangovers, DFS adverts and running out of milk the second all the shops close, Channel 4's holiday stalwart returns. In a year that saw such events as people arguing over The Dress, Taylor Swift biting chunks out of Apple or bewigged omnifarce Donald Trump being consistently terrible, there's certainly plenty to cover, so it's lucky that Rob Brydon, David Mitchell, Greg Davies and Jo Brand are on standby to cock their respective snooks at 2015's most mockable stories.

Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Guardian, 26th December 2015
