What did 50-year-old spinster Mary Bale throw away to become Britain's most hated woman? If you know the answer to all, some, or even none, of the above then join Jimmy as he challenges the host of famous faces to win the coveted Big Fat Quiz crown. Assisting Jimmy are some seriously A-list question setters. As well as surprises, treats and laughs, some of the year's biggest names and newsmakers also drop in to the studio.
