In the first show of the new series, Sarah Millican chats about Motoring Shows with car uber-expert Quentin Willson, Crime Drama with Law and Order UK's Bradley Walsh and Quiz Shows with Pointless co-presenter Richard Osman.

Quentin, asked if he has ever had sex in a car, says, "Yes, in the back. Both the seats were down so it was like a handy double bed. It was meticulously planned."

Responding to Sarah's cheeky question on whether he had decided on his hairstyle with an open top car in mind, Quentin says, "Absolutely, it's pretty aerodynamic."

Assisting her Crime Programme investigation, Sarah is joined by Bradley Walsh. Asked if there is any method to his acting on Law and Order UK, he jokes, "I prepared for the role by just learning lines and remembering them."

Describing him as 'A Teatime Stephen Fry', Sarah asks Richard some rather Pointless questions. Asked about his apparent 'bromance' with Alexander Armstrong, he says, "People often say, 'I love the unrequited sexual tension between you two,' to which I say, 'It's not unrequited!'"
