Why was Christian Bale so angry in January? What made NASA so happy in December? And which scandal prompted President Obama to call Kanye West a "jackass" in September? The biggest, fattest and funniest quiz of the year returns to Channel 4 with a stellar line-up.

Jimmy Carr does the quizzing, Peter Andre drops in for a surprise visit and as usual there's a glittering host of A-listers popping up to ask questions about the years events.
