Who stole the show at the Royal Wedding? What does Danny Dyer think about David Cameron? What is Kanye West's passcode? All of these questions and more will be answered on 2018's biggest, fattest, and most thoroughly GDPR-compliant quiz.

Press

It would not be Christmas without Jimmy Carr's annual quiz and, given the news cycle, there is much for him to smirk at, from Danny Dyer's Brexit bashing to the royal wedding. The teams include Richard Ayoade, Noel Fielding and Claudia Winkleman, with Jon Snow and Charles Dance playing quizmasters.
