    Press

    Being a Have I Got News for You guest host is now a staging post to becoming prime minister so hopefully Victoria Coren Mitchell will one day end up in No 10. Only Connect's high priestess of arcana is in the big chair tonight, helping Paul Merton and Ian Hislop brand some zingers on the bucking bronco of current affairs.
