Custard. Not only a great addition to a multitude of desserts but a nifty little mover, too. So says Lee Mack who, with the help of a portable speaker, attempts to prove that the gloopy delight can dance.

Find out if this week's guests, naturalist Chris Packham, former Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh and comedian Jimmy Carr, can do any better with their general knowledge gems about blinking, coffee and colourblind bulls.

Mack also spends some quality time with Walsh on a sofa in a show-closing experiment featuring lots of Velcro.
