Monty Python's Best Bits (Mostly) celebrates the very best sketches from the Monty Python's phenomenal back catalogue - from Flying Circus to the films and not forgetting Terry Gilliam's iconic animations.

Presented by self-confessed Monty Python nut, Hugh Bonneville, each episode sees the creme de la creme of the comedy world pick their favourite sketches and explain why these moments deserve to go down in history as one of Monty Python's finest.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, but they're bound to appear in Gold's hilarious romp through the greatest hits of this iconic comedy group.

Celebrity fans include Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Chevy Chase, Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard, Kate Beckinsale, Tracey Ullman and Simon Pegg.
