Jack Whitehall asks 'how honest is Britain?' in this Comedy Lab pilot. He oversees a secretly filmed poll centred on this topic and creates a number of outrageous stunts on unsuspecting members of the public.

Would individuals lie in court if a celebrity asked them? Or would they pretend to be off their head on drugs for £20? Results are then discussed with co-presenter Jamelia and the studio audience.
