Joining Ian and Paul on the panel are Pointless co-presenter Richard Osman and Labour party peer Dame Joan Bakewell, marking her second appearance on the show since she first appeared in Series 3 in 1992. She laughs: "Exposing myself to the ridicule and mockery of Hislop and Co... can't wait!"

She is the author of four radio plays and two novels and she has published four other books.
