Unzipped (previously Britain Unzipped) is an eye-opening series for BBC Three that lifts the lid on what we Brits really think and get up to.

Based on the results of a huge nationwide questionnaire, the show delivers an alternative, funny 'state of the nation' snapshot, asking everything from the national to the personal, the eye-opening to the downright daft.

Radio 1 DJ Greg James and stand-up comedian Russell Kane host proceedings, cross-examining celebrity guests, presenting hidden camera stunts, and chatting to the studio audience, all along the way exploring how beliefs and behaviours differ across the nation, and attempting to uncover who the weirdest celebrity in Britain really is - a title won by Holly Willoughby in Series 1.

From our sex lives to our moral compass, no stone is left unturned as questions, from the serious to the very light-hearted, include: How does wealth really affect the number of sexual partners you've had? Where in the country are people most likely to have slept with a friend's partner? How much if any would be the lowest amount of money you would want to have your little toe chopped off? How often do we really delete our internet history? Who's more likely to have a favourite child - mums or dads?
