Keith's innuendo filled house tour

Keith explores a mystery Celebrity house searching for clues as to who live there, all whilst struggling to get his innuendos past Richard the lawyer.

Featuring: Keith Lemon, Rich Keeble (Richard the Lawyer) & Christopher Biggins.


A seasonal special launches the sixth series of the revamped entertainment show, in which Keith Lemon unsubtly introduces footage of Keith Lemon having a nose around celebrities' houses. Whether the star home-owners are more famous than usual remains to be seen, but the panel trying to guess their identity is a noticeable upgrade from C-list to B: Jonathan Ross, Lorraine Kelly and [Jimmy Carr are the individuals in the studio, ready and waiting to crack wise.
