Series 6, Episode 7

Comedian Rob Beckett, Only Connect host Victoria Coren Mitchell and singer Melanie C team up with Lee Mack on the panel show that sets facts straight. Things get wacky as they question whether winning makes people more likely to cheat and if sound can change how something tastes. They also test whether a woman is more likely to agree to a date if she's just listened to a love song.
