Princess Anne's dog kills one of the Queen's Corgis

Sue tells the panel how one of Princess Anne's dogs savaged one of the Queen's Corgis.

Featuring: Josh Widdicombe, Richard Osman, Sue Perkins & Kate Williams.


With the Beeb's Bake Off all but over, Sue Perkins now has plenty of time to chair the new series of this wacky quiz show. Teams - led by professional know-it-all Richard Osman and panel game veteran Josh Widdicombe - are grilled on past and present celebrity trivia. Except, confusingly, all the celebs in question have the same name. Silly, semi-interesting and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny stuff.

Preview - Insert Name Here

When Sue Perkins-fronted panel show Insert Name Here began earlier this year, there was not that much notice taken of it, which was a shame as it was one of the better efforts in terms of panel shows.
