Notes

This episode was pulled from schedules at short notice due to the appearance of Heidi Allen MP. When producers had booked her, European Parliament elections were expected not to be taking place but an announcement the vote would take place meant election rules on impartiality came into force, which her appearing on the show would have broken. Full story

Paul and Phil won, 7 points to 6.
