Events in the world have rather overtaken The Last Leg. Such is the madness of unfolding news in the United States and in our own parliament, there seems to be no shortage of quality special guests - David Tennant or Russell Brand, say - turning up to voice an opinion on the carnage. This week's guest is still under wraps, but host Adam Hills, assisted by Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe, will be passing comment on the latest news events.

The boys are back - namely Josh Widdicombe, Alex Brooker and esteemed host Adam Hills - for a new series of The Last Leg, following their sterling work covering the 2016 Paralympic Games from Rio. For this inaugural episode of 2017, the team are joined by the Broadchurch and former Doctor Who star David Tennant, who is on hand to assist in their comic summation of the week's news, plus handling some of the standard #isitok tweets from viewers.

Preview - The Last Leg Christmas Special

The comic news program that shouldn't necessarily make you laugh with its controversial, often offensive, subject matter and awkward sly comments - but I can't deny it, the boys are funny!

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker offer up some pre-Christmas punch as the team look back over the year, and forward to the festive season. Grayson Perry brushes mince pie crumbs from the spare seat to join the Leggers as they sift through 2016's nice and naughty lists. Is it OK to hope they have uncovered at least a few morsels of merriness from the wreckage of a year that spawned Brexit, president-elect Trump and Cruz Beckham's debut single?

Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Guardian, 23rd December 2016

Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker present another satirical outing for those not yet suffering terminal news-poisoning. Given the avalanche of deplorable happenstances in any given week, it's safe to say there'll be plenty to facepalm at, and edgy current affairs questions to ponder via the series' spinoff "#isitok" hashtag. Meanwhile, will new Last Leg pin-up Justin Trudeau possibly indulge the trio's overtures to come on the show and cheer us all up?
