Further details

Why did Keir Starmer sparkle this year? Which sporting event was labelled a cuddle battle? What fashion must-have divided opinion? And why was everyone talking about the Pope's fashion sense? Richard Ayoade, Katherine Ryan, Mel Giedroyc, Mo Gilligan, Rosie Jones and Kevin Bridges try to answer all those questions and more, while Jimmy Carr oversees proceedings to find out who knows the most about the year that's been.
