This show features footage of Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker taking on some of the finest Paralympian athletes at a game of Wheelchair Curling.

Team GB comprised of 10 times Paralympic gold medal winning para-equestrian Lee Pearson, wheelchair sprinting Paralympic double-gold medallist Hannah Cockroft and Paralympic gold medallist Richard Whitehead.

Neither The Last Leg boys or the Paralympians had tried their hands at curling before, so much needed help was enlisted by Champion British Wheelchair Curler Michael McCreadie and Sochi Silver medallist David Murdoch to train them up.

So - after a very short training session, did three entertainers manage to beat some of the most determined athletes in the land?
