Having shown with Five Gold Rings that playalong apps can modernise gameshows, ITV now tries a riskier version of the tactic with a panel game. Jonathan Ross and Frank Skinner lead teams second-guessing how the public will vote on moral and political dilemmas; it's live, with host Alexander Armstrong reporting results gleaned from viewers prodding their devices at home. Will any questions test how xenophobic the audience is?

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 25th April 2017
