Davina McCall, Paddy McGuinness and Stephen Mangan throw themselves into a series of experiments involving trouser measurements, invincible eggs and tickle-blocking.

The pièce de résistance, though, is Mack's fact that you can lift a person off the ground using helium balloons, for which he needs Davina's assistance.
