Series 52, Episode 1
In the first episode of the new series, former Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg
takes to the host's chair. Stand-up comedians Kevin Bridges
and Roisin Conaty
are the guests.
Talking about hosting the show, Nick Clegg says: "Call me a glutton for punishment as I know Hislop and Merton don't pull their punches but I couldn't turn down the offer to present an episode of Have I Got News For You. I like to think five gruelling years of coalition government will have been good preparation."
