Series 6, Episode 2

Rob Brydon, Emma Bunton and Carol Vorderman join funnyman Lee Mack to challenge more improbable facts. Using whatever wacky means possible, they'll be testing whether parents can tell if their kids are lying, whether you can control someone's hand with your brain and if just one spoonful of olive oil can calm an entire lake.
