The format of this riotous chatshow often seems flimsy. So it's a testament to Narstie's charisma - and the chemistry between him and Mo Gilligan - that it works as well as it does. Tonight's guests include Leeds scrapper Nicola Adams and comedian Johnny Vegas, whose gift for chaos should suit the show perfectly.

The grime MC-turned-TV host returns for another series of his hit talkshow, alongside Mo "The Comedian" Gilligan. Described by its producers as "Graham Norton on acid", but probably akin to a more diverse Celebrity Juice, the show hits the sweet spot between current and nostalgic - with guests ranging from Pamela Anderson to Not3s - via Narstie and Mo's daft/straight dynamic. "The thing I like about this show is it doesn't always have to work," joked series one guest Richard Ayoade, but more often than not, it does.
