More trivial titbits are traded in an all-new episode featuring Great British Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc, A League Of Their Own's Freddie Flintoff and comedian Johnny Vegas.

Ladies first, Mel gets the ball rolling when she reveals that gingerhaired people have a higher pain threshold than individuals of other hair colours. Cue a series of experiments involving electric shocks, an icy swimming pool and high-speed projectiles - please note that people were harmed during the making of this programme.

Freddie, meanwhile, lets us know that cows with names produce more milk than their moniker-less peers, and Johnny shares a snippet about successful queue-jumping.

A spooning session with host Lee Mack on a bed of nails also awaits.
