First Dates' Fred Sirieix pops in for a swig of champagne and Strictly Come Dancing's Karen and Kevin Clifton give the panellists a much-needed dance lesson. As usual, Jimmy will be ably assisted by Big Fat favourites such as Jon Snow, Mitchell Brook Primary School and Joey Essex, as well as a whole host of celebrity question-setters. So, what were Captain Oates's famous last words? What is the first rule of Fight Club? Can you name three things that Alanis Morissette thinks are ironic?
