Further details

The Big Fat Quiz Of Everything is back for a second helping with quizmaster Jimmy Carr presiding over proceedings as Jonathan Ross, Noel Fielding, Richard Ayoade, Aisling Bea, Adam Buxton and Rob Beckett fiercely battle it out for the Big Fat Quiz crown.

Jimmy asks questions from the last 100,000 years of human history, giving the unique Big Fat Quiz spin on everything from science to music, food and drink to crime and punishment, and TV to politics, with a dollop of celebrity thrown in for good measure. As usual, Jimmy will be ably assisted by Big Fat Quiz favourites Jon Snow, the children of Mitchell Brook Primary School and Joey Essex, as well as a whole host of famous question setters, and a Mariachi band who drop by to liven up the party. So, what was in Pandora's Box? What did President Bush ban from the White House? And can you name three things Right Said Fred were too sexy for?


Richard and Noel won, 25 points to Jonathan and Adam's 23, and Aisling and Rob's 20.
